The Lasagna was also a large portion and included a large salad. Both meals were very good. The price for the Seafood Chowder... More

While visiting family in Nova Scotia had breakfast here four times. Wonderful service and hot tasty omelets, eggs Benedict, pancakes and more. The fishcakes are to die for - be sure to ask for the chow relish on the side.!

We went here the first night we were in Nova Scotia for supper. The hot roast beef was HOT and the seafood tasty. The waitress offered us the WiFi password and was very attentive. The meal was a good value.

This restaurant definitely had a local small town atmosphere. The server was very friendly and helpful. The food was great. It was a nice small town restaurant and literally is just around the bend.
