Menu is house made. I enjoyed home made granola with yogurt and cranberries with a side of toast. My husband had a chicken burger. Coffees were excellent, beans ground on sight. Also art work is on display and for sale.

Six months ago, I was in Edinburgh, and had "the best latte in the world" - so the TripAdvisor ratings told me. Served by a spanish barista who clearly knew his stuff, it was delightful. So skip Edinburgh. Come to Antigonish. Oh. My. God. The...More
