I've eaten her a lot over the years. I try to make it my spot to eat when I find myself in Baddeck. I was here recently in a power outage. We were the last table served before they closed for the night. The pizzas are very good. We had the Cello Classic and the BBQ chicken pizza. The Garlic... More

We tried to have dinner here; however, the power went out in the entire town, so we went back the next morning for breakfast. It was average. We didn't have any issues and everything tasted fine, but nothing special.

This restaurant was clean and friendly. The use of yellow made me smile. My husband had a ham and cheese sandwich on homemade bread and I had the huge hot dog with sour kraut. The slaw that accompanies the dishes gives you about 2 bites! The desserts looked fabulous as well as the pizzas I viewed others eating. Nice place.

Ordered the pizza and Caesar salad and both were good. Was able to request whole wheat pizza dough! Was pleasantly surprised you can order unsweetened ice tea! Hubby had the taco salad and it looked good. Teens had Caesar chicken salad and oriental salad. Both seemed to like their meals.

Good service. However my vegetarian sub was astonishingly poor. My friend enjoyed the Italian sausage sub.. Kinda hard to mess up... Interior is poorly ventilated. Cute decor.

This summer, we planned our entire vacation on Cape Breton Island to be as close to Baddeck as possible. Not only because it is centrally located in a beautiful setting, but because of the Yellow Cello. Our first visit to Cape Breton in 2012, we were told by our neighbours, originally from Montreal, to go to the Yellow Cello. That... More

We were recommended by a few people to go here and we were glad we did. We sat out on their nice patio - has a good vibe. The food - we had pizza - was really good with fresh ingredients.

Not sure if our waitress quit or her shift ended, but she literally disappeared from the restaurant after serving our lunch. Neither of the other two wait staff in the half-empty place seemed to care that we had been left on our own with no chance to order a second cup of coffee or a dessert. We had to get... More

Everything lives up to its great name. The menu is varied and our choices were excellent. The setting is causal and comfortable and the staff is friendly.
