“Amazing Food, Great Service, A Must-Stop!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2011

Whenever I pass through Antigonish (which, being from Cape Breton, is rather often) I stop in for a sandwich. They are just delicious. Great service, strong coffee, there's a reason why this spot is so popular! Do yourself a favour and swing by, you will not regret it!

“great food, horrible service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2010

Some of the best food in Antigonish. Really, really good. But when it's busy they leave people standing in line to order while the person on cash helps out in the kitchen. It's one thing to wait 10 minutes to get your sandwich, and quite another to wait ten minutes *in line* to order a sandwich. I won't go there for lunch anymore, which is too bad, because they have one of the best lunches in town.

“never go anymore and miss it”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2010

The food is fantastic here. Healthy, fresh, very tasty. The problem is that it is too small, there is never anywhere to sit and people are lined up right next to your table. No privacy. No room at all. The food takes forever to come. I mean a really long time to get a sandwich....when you are on a time constraint you cannot eat there. Too bad because the food is great and the owners are special.

“You leave with a good feeling”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2010

Three of us met here for breakfast in July 2010 and had excellent coffee with a large breakfast for each of us. The service was professional and attentive and we felt welcome there. The food was great and the price reasonable. I will go back for an evening meal sometime when I'm in the area again. Whenever you leave a restaurant feeling good about your experience, it's time to tell somebody. That's what happened to us at the Tall and Small.
