“Lot's of goodies”
Reviewed June 24, 2014

We were in Mahone Bay for the flea Market and stopped here for a quick lunch. There is no table service go inside and order what you want. Food on one side pay on the other. Seating is outside. On the day we were there a woman was strumming a guitar and singing which was quite pleasant.
I had the chowder soup, my husband had the BLT and our friend had the soup combo. All was good if a bit overpriced. There are lots of home made goodies for afters.
There are a few groceries for sale and a gift shop.
No bathroom!

“Wonderful little place with something for everyone!”
Reviewed June 16, 2014

While staying at the Atlantica Hotel at Oak Island & Marina, my husband and I took a side trip to Mahone Bay to see "the three churches" before heading to the airport for our flight home. First of all, I wish we had of spent a day in Mahone Bay - what a pretty little town on the water's edge!

We came upon Jo-Ann's Deli, it's cute exterior drew us in. The place is filled with all sorts of deli items, baked goods, preserves - it seems you name it, they've got it! We purchased to huge blueberry scones for breakfast and a lobster sandwich & baked good for lunch on our flight home.

Those blueberry scones were fantastic! Light and fluffy. The lobster sandwich okay, it wasn't as flavourful as we'd hoped it would be.

With a Tim Hortons right next door, I'd recommend a stop here instead. Prices are comparable. You won't be disappointed. And if you're in Mahone Bay just browsing, it's just a charming little place to go and look around!

I am including a few photos taken while making our purchase. If you have found this review helpful, please let me know by clicking below.

“No Bathroom!”
Reviewed June 16, 2014

You serve coffee, tea, liquids and food and when a washroom is needed you say it is "out of order". You send your customers on foot up to Irving Gas Station or across and up abusy road to a public bathroom. I don't understand the thinking here at all. People might linger and eat and have a second cup of coffee if they could use a washroom on the premises.

Be fore warned that you have to hike an uncomfortable distance if you need to use the washroom. It seems very odd indeed and surely this is hardly conducive to return visits.

Yes we do in fact have a washroom for our staff. I would never turn anyone away who required the facilities of a washroom, that's just not me. And yes, there is a visitors washroom across the street. Happy travels. Rae

“Always Good”
Reviewed June 1, 2014 via mobile

Great sandwiches, baked goods and other yummy treats.
We love stopping here then going on a picnic.
Sitting outside isn't a the most comfortable or inviting and is usually packed anyway.
We love the food and will continue I return whenever we are in Mahone Bay.

“Best lunches in Mahone Bay”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

The outdoor seating is limited but the freshly made sandwiches are to die for.
The only thing i can say in a negative comment is that it is sometime so busy that there is a wait for your lunch
