My husband and I travelled from Alberta to the east coast with our ten year old daughter for the first time ever. I booked the maple magic package at Sugar Moon Farm as soon as booking opened up for the summer (and actually planned the entire itinerary of our trip around making sure we could stop here on a Saturday or Sunday). It definitely lived up to my expectations. The owner (Quita?) was a lovely teacher and guide. She shared her knowledge about maple farming in an interesting way and made it interactive for our small, eclectic group. There were families from Germany, England, BC, and Ontario participating alongside us. The flow was smooth and I learned many new things. One addition that would have added to the experience would be to go outside as a group (weather permitting) to look at an actual maple tree with a tap and tubing attached. It would have been interesting to see that in real life.

The food was exceptional. I had the special. The pork was melt in your mouth delicious, the egg was cooked absolutely perfectly, the greens were lovely, and the pancakes and syrup contrasted all of those things in a balanced and delightful way. The beans were flavourful but too al dente for my taste. We had a few different types of beverages at our table as well. All were good but the gin fizz was my favourite.

After our meals, our group went outside to have tire sur la neige. It was a fun way to end the experience. I did go back in to purchase some maple syrup to bring home, as well as a blueberry lip balm that is great quality. I wish I had purchased more than one.

I would absolutely recommend Sugar Moon Farm and hope to return for brunch soon.

The food and the atmosphere in the restaurant. The brunch menu was well thought out and had lots of sides to choose from.

Never pass up and opportunity to see a working farm in action. The added benefit to your visit to Sugar Moon Farm is that you can enjoy an excellent meal as well. The service is as good as the food. Sign up for one of the owner-led tours. You will learn the process of collecting and processing maple syrup, a Canadian national treasure. The best part is learning all about this small family run operation. Our group of eight enjoyed seeing how the process works on this small farm, in addition to the history of the farm. The folks on our tour were as good as the tour itself.

Sugar Moon Farm has always been a must stop in anytime we travel to Nova Scotia. No matter where we've stayed it was always worth the trip.

Last year we were unable to make it to Nova Scotia due to Covid, and when we were able to come this year we knew unfortunately some of the places we frequent might change.

We received an email saying Sugar Moon Farm was accepting reservations for Saturday & Sundays and we made one.

When we went in, they were very clear of their covid protocols, which were simple & succinct.

We got the menu and it's changed a little bit, our go to dish was no longer there, but we saw some interesting new options.

We both ended up getting the Sugar Camp Pork and Eggs and I have to say I was absolutely blown away. Mike, the new chef has a background in fine dining and the meal absolutely shows it, without being overly pretentious or stuffy.

It is unassuming breakfast fine dining, where the staff are friendly and just want you to completely enjoy no matter where you're from, what you get, you will be impressed.

Nova Scotia is known for it's seafood, but incredible chefs like Mike make it known for incredible food.

5/5 is an understatement. If you're able to, make a reservation, get a delicious inexpensive meal, and get excited for what Mike has for your next visit.

A typical rural farm. Excellent, helpful and friendly staff. Restaurant of staff and also a place to buy sit-up on the snow. This is great for kids and adults alike!

Beautiful trails and nice ambiance. One thing however was disappointing was the cost of food. It was 75$ for 3 adults and 1 child to eat. I had the Bean Cassoulet, which was basically a soup. Not hearty at all, and a small serving with a half a slice of toast.

We are all still hungry.

Maybe it is different with the restaurant instead of the take out menu.

Still a nice spot but menu could use a tweak.

What an incredibly unique and great little spot. The whole experience was truly remarkable. My boyfriend and I came up for a nice breakfast (we had dietary restrictions - dairy free - which were easily accommodated) and a surreal hike. Love the vibe here with the owner personally coming by to say hello and check on things making our meal a little extra special. Highly recommend taking a day to go for some home cooked food, tasty maple syrup and a beautiful hike.

We also came home with some maple syrup, and this is a must :).

We started with complitmentary biscuits then enjoyed a late breakfast of pancakes, bacon and sausage with a rum-maple mocha to chase it down. There's a gift shop full of maple-themed products (the maple butter will both enrich and ruin your life). The tour was pleasant with the speaker being very engaging, especially with the kids which was lovely to see. There's a picturesque trail which is about 6km if you do the whole thing but just remember to bring appropriate footwear in winter months (though you can rent snow shoes). The staff are all really welcoming and friendly which just created the most serene and relaxed environment. I will happily go back when friends/family visit.

Cute and cozy little restaurant. Surprisingly I enjoyed the mac and cheese better than the breakfast. But the whip cream is very good. It is a very cute place off the beaten path.
Also I love how they have different maple syrup and it is now where I buy my maple syrup from. It is amazing the different taste based on the season and it is nice to be able to try them.
