We stopped here after our visit to Peggy's Cove for a drink. We decided to try the caramel rhubarb pie which was home made and delicious. Served promptly and reasonably priced.

We stopped by Finer Diner after visiting Peggy's Cove and the lunch was delicious. We had lobster rolls, fish & chips and soup. Everything was very tasty and portions were plentiful. Our waitress was so nice and we enjoyed chatting with her.

We stopped here for lunch. We had a halibut and haddock dish with house salad and veggies. Food was simple but very fresh and delicous. Service was quick and the view is very nice.

Nestled between highway 333 and St Margaret’s Bay, The Finer Diner is a popular stop all year long. This quaint eatery is a welcoming licensed restaurant featuring classic diner fare, Nova Scotian favorites, and playful daily specials. You will find interesting Fine Art painting and sculpture in an old fashioned setting with incredible views of the historic fishing inlet called Boutilier’s Cove. Guests can enjoy a sunset meal on our covered patio, or a slice of our homemade pie in a cozy booth. The diner is a renovated general store and has been the heartbeat of Hackett’s Cove for over 100 years. We look forward to serving you.
