“Good Value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2012

We ate at Craigie's once again. This is a no-frills type of place with good food. It looks much better on the inside with its cedar panelling. The washrooms are very basic. We were given very friendly service by the owner, Noelle. The whitefish and fries were up to our expectations. You get a very large order of fries and a good-sized piece of lightly breaded whitefish. The ketchup is refilled in squeezable bottles that were originally Heinz containers. Cash only at this restaurant! There are usually friendly, colourful people eating here and we had a great 20 minute conversation with the people at the next table. We will definitely go back.

“Don't miss the best restaurant experience in Tobermory”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2012

Breakfast and lunch might be their specialty, but their whitefish for dinner is pretty decent, too. The place looks almost comical from the outside and is open a short season -- but this place delivers on its promise. Honest food, great service -- it doesn't disappoint.

“THE place to have breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

We avoided this place our fist day in Tobermory because it looked like a dilapidated shack from the outside. But don't let the exterior deceive you! We had breakfast here on our second day in Tobermory because it was recommended as a good place to get a quick breakfast. The place was busy, clean, and much nicer on the inside. Breakfast was inexpensive, quick, and good (I had the standard bacon&eggs&coffee). This looks like the go-to place for breakfast for locals and tourists alike.

“Very good, inexpensive breakfast.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2012

We were staying at the Blue Bay Motel and, since they don't offer breakfast, they recommended Craigie's Harborview Restaurant. I've seen this place before but, because it's in the middle of a parking lot, just as you come into Tobermory on Bay Street, it never interested me.

Craigie's has been in business since 1932 and for part of that time it was a gas station and restaurant. Today it's just a restaurant but I can understand why they've been around so long. The breakfast was delicious. All of us had the breakfast special (coffee or tea, 2 eggs, toast, bacon, sausage or ham) for under $6.00.

The coffee and eggs were fresh and the service was prompt, friendly and helpful. Plus, the rustic charm of this little place is a freebie.

Next time we're in Tobermory and our hotel or motel doesn't offer breakfast we'll know where to go.
