This location is now "1783" Bakery and Eatery. The building is now a dark red colour with cream trim. We enjoyed great brewed coffee, and ordered off a hand-written menu. I tried the French toast, which was done with two thick slices of french bread, and it was fantastic.

Mag Pye's is a true gem. Somehow we missed it on our first day in Digby. We've been morning (and sometimes after lunch too) regulars every day since then. The lattes are delicious and they have very yummy looking pastries and desserts. The barista is very friendly and the owner will discuss hockey with you. Super great people.

I believe we were here too early. This is another of the attractions not open before Victoria Day weekend. It is certainly a room with a view...of the Bay of Fundy.

If breakfast or lunch are on your schedule stop into Mag Pyes. You can have a seafood mixed into a traditional breakfast or lunch. Each order is made fresh so you can make changes if a diet concern. In the summer on special week-ends there will be theme dinners with some choices, always good.

A great little spot on Main Street with view of the water. Great service. Food was fairly priced. A feeling of home with linen table clothes and napkins. Nice touches with china serving pieces. Great staff

Sorry to hear this is the last season for Mag Payes! I love this little restaurant and bakery. The limited fixed menu was excellent and I have eaten here twice over 2 years on my trips and always well prepare.

Stopped in for breakfast on a Subday morning. Excellent home cooking and very friendly owners. Great cure for a hang over ;) They even booked us a tee time at the local golf course while we ate.

We had dinner on two consecutive nights at Mag Pyes. The owners are an outgoing, engaging couple. The atmosphere was relaxed and friendly, and the food was superb. What a pity that this great restaurant is closing down.
