“Imaginative food for Breakfast!”
Reviewed June 25, 2012

We were surprised to read the negative reports for this restaurant, having eaten breakfast there earlier this week. I guess it must be a management change -try it again if you visited a while ago.
Hubby and I both chose the Coconut French Toast ($7) as we had eaten cooked breakfasts for over a week in different hotels. The bread is reportedly dipped in coconut milk and egg, fried, topped with banana and pineapple and sprinkled with a thick, fruity mango sauce. It was delicious and very filling. The coffee was good and plentiful too.
The young server was lovely, answering all our questions about the Bluenose II and the local history of Lunenburgh.
Admittedly a small meal but enough to know that the service was great and the food imaginative. Try it!!!

“Good Food Reasonable Price”
Reviewed June 14, 2012

The title says it all. We only had breakfast here. It is beside the Inn we stayed at and they gave a discount coupon for breakfast. The portions are good and so is the quality.

“Thank goodness...new Management, better experience.”
Reviewed June 2, 2012

I previously had a bad breakfast experience, and I now see there was a change in Management, so I thought to be fair I should try again.
I had a wonderful breakfast, hearty, tasty and with excellent coffee.
So ignore many of the old bad comments, including my own, and give the Scuttlebutt another chance!!

“High Prices and mediocre food”
Reviewed January 30, 2012

My husband and I were moving to Lunenburg and decided to try a local restaurant.
We were very disappointed with Scuttlebutt's.Our waitress was super,very friendly,but the food was so-so.I had the lobster eggs benedict.The lobster was cold and there was nothing else on the plate except a couple of slices of orange.My husband had a breakfast special which was okay.....Our bill for two of us was $40..a bit high for breakfast fare which didn't include coffee/tea. Just because it's a tourist town..remember that locals like to frequent your restaurants too,,,and we are the ones tourists will ask for recommendations..
