We had a lovely meal here the night we arrived in Baddeck. We were quite late arriving and were lucky to get a table. My daughter is vegetarian and struggled to find good vegetarian food in Nova Scotia as all restaurants serve mainly seafood, but she was very happy with her vegetarian option here.

Overlooking Baddeck Bay. Very quaint lunch spot across from and in middle of many other gift shops and restaurants. A great place to have a mug up whether going to nearby Alexander Graham Bell museum , a boat tour on Baddeck Bay or strolling through this historic village. Many visit this village by road and sea. I adore Baddeck.

I recently stopped here for breakfast with family. The atmosphere is very nice, comfortable and bright- unfortunately that was the only good part about it. Since it was the end of the season they had nothing that was advertised on the menu, we got eggs that were not thoroughly cooked and had to send them back, cinnamon toast with almost... More

I dropped into this place after trying to get into Two Buoys which was aswarm with bus tourists. I was able to sit outside, with an umbrella for shade. I ordered the lobster roll which was of good standard quality.

Right in the middle of town, this little cafe makes a fabulous spot to stop when you are walking the waterfront or main street of cute Baddeck. Good food. It's busy but servers are capable of handling the popularity.

What a great little place for a tasty bite! We went more than once during our stay, and wished we had gone more times! Had a great pizza, pasta dinner, and desserts.

My husband and I had previously enjoyed breakfast here. However, the service on this visit, and the quality of the food were both totally unacceptable. We waited an extremely long time for our food, only to find that our eggs were cold and overcooked. We had to flag down a waitress to get a glass of ice water, and a... More
