“good food but dining area could be improved”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

nice selection of sandwiches and very good pastries, very good coffee,too. The dining area is a bit too basic for my liking, why not make it way cosier, the potential would be there. Plastic chairs and plastic tables are not the most inviting interior to spend some more time there.

“Nice friendly place for breakfast”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

Nice unpretentious bakery/cafe with friendly staff. The breakfast was good and the peanut butter cookies were awesome.

We wound up eating here 3 times while we were in Baddeck! Does that tell you something? The service was excellent and the food was very, very good!

“Box lunch for the Cabot Trail”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

Purchased a box lunch here before setting out on the Cabot Trail. It was the perfect strategy as we could decide when and where to eat as we traveled this scenic road. Fresh, homemade breads, and fresh ingredients, accompanied by fruit, a drink and a cookie filled the bill!
