Personally we love the smoked salmon eggs Benedict. Anyone who loves smoked salmon should give this a try!

Excellent meal and fabulous service. My mom and I were spending a night away in Antigonish and decided on Justamere because of the menu and photos on web site. She had the chicken and mushroom Alfredo and it came to the table really hot and the creamy sauce was delicious. I had the chipotle burger which had a lovely grilled... More

We go to the Justamere quite often especially for brunch and lunch. We have always been treated well by staff and cannot say that we have had a bad meal ever.

We had a delightful mid afternoon lunch while on vacation. Service was prompt and polite. We ordered the curry mussels, fish cakes and seafood chowder. Prices were very reasonable and food was delicious, the only thing missing was the sauce for the fishcakes. We will definitely be back.

We had dinner one night then breakfast next day. Food was great, servers were pleasant & helpful when I couldn't decide what I wanted. This cafe is the best thing about the Claymore Hotel.

It was a busy place when we were there! Sunday at noon Highland Games Week. I ordered their Roasted Veggie Sandwich and my niece had the Turkey Mango Sandwich. We split both! The food was oh so tasty.... I really loved both. The only draw back was the VERY long wait between ordering and getting our food. I will accommodate... More
