“The best of Chéticamp”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

The Frog Pond is the place to be in Chéticamp! On top of delicious homemade goodies, quality espresso (only place in town for this!), and great service you are bound to meet some friendly local folks who can point you in the direction of any number of awesome places to visit in Chéticamp. Bill Roach's art gallery is an additional draw to the Frog Pond. Good art and coffee in the same place! My favourite treats are the pain au chocolat, olive and feta croissant, and the chocolate chip banana muffins. Homemade bread and Montreal style bagels are great too! If you don't stop here on your visit to Chéticamp you are really missing out.

“A perfect place after hiking”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

I learned about Frog Pond Cafe on Trip Advisor. We stopped there twice after long days of hiking in the Cape Breton Highlands National park. I had the best latte there of any place that we tried on the island and the Frog Pond giant cookie was the best! Fun, funky atmosphere with the bullfrogs croaking in the background. Loved the woman who ran the place!

“A great find on the way to beauty”
Reviewed July 7, 2014 via mobile

So if you're not careful u will miss this little coffee stand. Shame on me for not asking her name but she is a lovely German lady that makes delicious and real lattes. This little gem is tucked in from the road. In front is a yellow house. There is a studio and art carvings that r creates by her father in law and also other nova Scotian artists. She has a little elfresco area or indoor area to enjoy the delicious coffee. On my next adventure through the Cabot trail this is my coffee stop for the road
Thank you for great coffee three months of the yr ;)

“A Real Gem, great food, view and amazing art!”
Reviewed June 26, 2014

Recommended by a local person, found at the far end of the town, village! Painted a beautiful yellow, and in we pulled. A spotless, unique, delicious experience. The owners were welcoming and we sat by the pond. It is light far, au de pain, filled with feta and olives, or cheese blended variety, chili pepper with cheese, and chocolate filled! Great coffees, including specialy cafe latte etc., plus Propeller Ginger Beer and Root Beer! Pleasant, delicious and then toured the gallery! A must for a light lunch, snack or visit. The owner carves amazing wooden art, and CD's of music featuring their talented son! Loved it! See if you can see the frogs in the Pond!

“great deserts and speciality coffees”
Reviewed June 22, 2014

What a great place for an out of this world London Fog tea and blueberry muffin. Sitting in this quaint little cafe overlooking the pond while chatting with friends and family is very relaxing to say the least. Great spot to enjoy speciality coffees and tasty sweet treats. Next door is the sunset gallery displaying Bill Roach's folk art carvings as well as other artisans handy work. Very friendly staff makes this place one of the most welcoming spot on this side of Cape Breton Highland.
