Great place to stop for some snacks. They have the best huge lobster sandwiches here. Just lobster and homemade bread without too much filler stuff. Yum.

Quaint country store good for stocking up for your grand circle Cabot Trail Route. Pre made refrigerated sandwiches are pretty fresh and good. Good idea because businesses along the route are often closed even during peak times. Ones open are usually crowded.

We stopped here for directions and they couldn’t have been any more helpful and friendly! Thanks so much for the directions. Even though we didn’t buy anything you helped us get where we needed to go! 👍

There are no restaurants in the area, so it was good to find this general store, to pick up some food for dinner.

This gas stop and find everything store was perfect for us. We stopped many times during our week. A great stop for novelty souvenirs, kitchen items forgotten while shopping at grocery store, fishing supplies, and late night cravings. We also found exactly what we needed,...More
