Wonderful Cafe

This was a really cute cafe with a wide variety of choices. They had many good choices for vegetarians and the food was tasty. I loved the music decor, and the service was fast.

Let me explain…I had just spent 11 hours exploring Cape Breton Highlands and was hungry. I did not want to wait in line and the first place we came to would be fine. I may have been wrong because the food was not so good. My wife had the worst chili she says she has ever tasted. I ordered the... More

I have to be honest. After enjoying the best France and Europe has to offer in small restaurants we were not impressed by American/Canadian cuisine but decided to give this place a try. Unfortunately it only reinforced our experience in both Canada and the U.S. O.K it was better than Tim Houghton's but not by a great deal. We retreated... More

I came here twice during my stay in Baddeck. The first time, I found it a little quiet (evening) and had some homemade pizza and salad which was decent. The desserts are great though and worth fitting in. I enjoyed coming here at breakfast time more though. Nicer family atmosphere and the French Toast I had was fantastic. Really good... More

Many of the locals were lined up on a Sunday morning to get their coffee and pastries which we took as a good sign. We were not disappointed.

The grilled cheese was soggy and the salad was mostly lettuce. We heard from people who lived there that it is not that great and that was our experience.

Nice variety of food and everything tasted great. Service was nearly non-existent, even with a nearly empty restaurant.

It was late in the evening, I wanted some poultry of some kind, so it was suggested to me to head to this place. I had the Chicken Parmesan over Spaghetti. The chicken was a big breast size, the sauce tasted home-made and it really hit the spot. I cut through that chicken very easily, using a butter knife, so... More

We had good salads and donnnairs. The pizza, however, was not very well cooked -- the flavor was fine, but they may not have the right oven. The vibe is good and the service excellent. Not a bad choice, but for the pizza.

We had a delicious lunch here and their dessert (butterscotch with ice cream and oatmeal cake) was my favorite on the trip! Friendly and good coffee!
