“Marvelous!”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

This is a really nice place. Great variety of snacks and sandwiches, very good cakes and sweets, a lot of them probably homemade. And a very good coffee, too. This is a self service deli with a great outdoor space to relax and read a book. You can get homemade jam, cheese and groceries and fresh fruit and veggies as well. Definitely a place to buy quality and the beautiful atmosphere makes you want to spend some more time.

“Awesome sandwiches!”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

Thank you! We were starving when we arrived at Jo-Ann's, got our freshly made delicious sandwiches in 2 minutes and enjoyed them enormously. We received warm welcome and service with smile! Great experience! The scones were a awesome desert!

“Worth the trip to Mahone Bay”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

Mahone Bay is a worthy enough destination for an afternoon, but it is the temptation of Jo-Ann's that brings us back again and again. My (then fiance, now husband) were looking for a bakery to do our wedding cupcakes last year and happened upon Jo-Ann's. So much more than a bakery! The pastries, cheesecakes, pies, muffins and more (including cupcakes) are to die for, but they also have homemade jams, farm-fresh produce, specialty grocery products and a wonderful deli. It is a lovely place for lunch, with outside seating. Everyone we have ever dealt with there has been very friendly and accommodating - none so much as Jo-Ann herself, who did the most amazing cupcakes for our nearby wedding down at the Atlantica Hotel & Marina Oak Island. Cupcakes that still make me drool at the sheer thought of them - and that my wedding quests still talk about a year after the fact. A very well-deserving local success story. If you haven't been, definitely check it out!

“Great food and atmosphere!”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

We visited Joanne's several times for great coffee and desserts in the evening. We also had a wonderful lunch of a lobster roll & chowder. They offer many items: ice cream, baking, desserts, jellies, jams, fresh produce, great coffee and many deli type items to dine in or take out. The location on a busy corner of Mahone Bay is a great place to people watch too!
