We live in the area but the location is slightly off our normal route going to Sydney or to Mainland Nova Scotia. However, with company we were doing a 'drive around' and had the opportunity and took it. As always, a great lunch of soup, sandwiches and salads...my guests and I thoroughly enjoyed it all. The quality has remained excellent... More

Love this place. The food is home made and tastes awesome every time. Clean bathroom. Great deck to sit outside and enjoy the lovely scenery of the Bra d'Or.

Overall we were not impressed with the restaurants in Cape Breton - except this one and the Dancing Goat. The place is quite eclectic and the food is fresh, friendly staff, great soups and is not to be missed. Its a short drive out of Baddeck but it is worth it. I would definitely go back

This is a great little deli that served the four of us overstuffed sandwiches for lunch. The ladies kept the several customers served....paying the tab was a bit cumbersome but it was very reasonable and the setting was great..rustic and on the water. They also had a neat selection of spices in bulk mason jars...curious and interesting.We all left happy.

We arrived at this cafe just before it was closing (closes at 6pm, which is a bit odd because that's dinnertime). The lentil soup was chili-like and very tasty. Cheddar biscuits tasted fresh, even at the end of the day, and the sandwiches were good. They brought some little gummy candies for the kids for dessert. The best part was... More

On a recent motorcycle trip through Cape Breton Island, my wife and I stopped at the Herring Choker. We loved it. Tasty cappuccino, a wide-variety of pastries made in house, wi-fi, and a deck out front. We especially liked the chocolate-chocolate-chip cookies. Judging by the number who came in for take-out while we were there, the place is popular with... More

My man and I each ordered a sandwich each. While waiting quite a long time for them we started picking out other little goodies to go with it. Then we over heard a man and his wife order only a tea and a biscuit each and got charged a crazy amount. After we heard what they paid for theirs we... More

Staff was friendly. Clubs were amazing that are made with homemade bread. The cheesy broccoli soup needed some work. I was told it was creamy but it just tasted like blended broccoli. No hint of cheese or cream/milk. I couldn't finish it. Left half of it or more in bowl. The gypsy soup on the other hand was delightful. Tomato... More
