White Sails Bakery has been around forever on the Peggy's Cove road, but it wasn't until a few years ago that it underwent a transformation to make it a must stop destination on this popular tourist loop. The change came about when a couple from Quebec, Jacques and Carolyn, bought the formerly staid bakery and transformed it into a Montreal sytle deli while maintaining the quality of the baked goods.The change started with painting the building a series of rainbow stripes in place of the traditional white.
This place is only ten minutes from where we live so we come here often, sometimes to pick up a tortiere to cook at home, sometimes just to get an order of the authentic Quebec poutine and sometimes to sit at one of the picnic tables that overlook Whynacht's Point and the Head of St. Margarets Bay. Yesterday was hot and sunny, and after five hours of sea kayaking it was a welcome sight to arrive at the gaily painted restaurant. My wife had the lobster roll which was as good as any to be found in HRM and far better than most. I had the reuben burger which was an angus burger topped with smoked meat. It was really enough for two as the picture shows.
We've never had anything at White Sails that disappointed. There are a ton of lousy restaurants on the way to Peggy's Cove. The only two I would recommend are Rhubarb at the Oceanstone Resort just outside Peggy's Cove and White Sails.
