“A hidden gem. Homestyle food just like Grandma used to make! I only wish I lived close by!”
Reviewed May 19, 2009

We ate here twice during our trip to Cape Breton and if we had discovered it sooner we would have gone more often as we were in the area 8 days.

From the outside it doesn't look special. More like a little hole in the wall in a strip mall, however a local recommended it and so we went there for lunch.

I had an incredible hot turkey sandwich with mashed potatoes, coleslaw and turnips just like my grandmother used to make. My husband had a burger which he said was pretty good and my mother had a grilled cheese sandwich she thought was terrific. Nobody in our group was unhappy with their food, including our 3 year old who got a generous portion of spaghetti and garlic toast off the kids menu.

The menu had a lot of variety and reasonable prices. When we went back again my son had the chicken strips, my husband had a philly-steak platter which he really enjoyed and I had to have the hot turkey sandwich again as it was just sooo good.

I only wish I lived close by as I would love to go there as a regular.

The hours could have been better, they were open 7-7 mon-sat and I think it was 10-3 on Sundays.
