They have a gluten free menu which is very hard to find in Cape Breton! Beautiful baked goods for sale also.

Was told to visit this place by some friends and was not disappointed. Food was excellent. Service was fast. No complaints at all. We had the Seafood Chowder and hot turkey sandwich and both were excellent.

We were a party of four. We had to wait for a table as the place was full, a great sign! We were not disappointed. Fresh hot food and friendly service. They also have a bakery that had delicious looking items. Will definitely stop here...More

Home cooking with extensive home made desserts that are reasonably priced. This is about 15 minutes north of Cabot Trail turnoff at St Ann's. It seemed like it was mostly locals vs heavily tourist-ed..

Perhaps this place is sliding downhill. Friends and family had highly recommended this place for lunch, and it has very high ratings here on TA. Service was good, but the food was a little disappointing, and not very good value. I had the lobster special...More
