The soup of the day was chicken noodle so two of us ordered it. Fresh and hot and chunky. I ordered poutine for the first time during this trip to the Maritimes. Good brown gravy with tasty cheese morsels. They also serve a pulled pork poutine that a guest at the next table described as delicious.

maybe we didn't give this area enough time, the best thing was it had a GoodLife Fitness in town. Most streets are metered parking. The tourist information booth is hidden behind a sub par strip mall. Good luck finding it without inquiring somewhere.

I had scotia burger (a burger 'drizzled slightly' with real maple syrup); great taste (will try this at home). spouse had chowder that also was very good. French fries were good, but too many for us. and no room for dessert. with wine and tip, bill came... More

Excellent food that doesn't cost a fortune. The mac and cheese is amazing. Wasn't sure if I would like the deep fried cheesecake, but I was blown away at how good it was. Will be back next time I'm in town.
