Ordered a chicken Panini from a very UNFRIENDLY WOMEN behind the counter and got a club Panini. Place is tooo small for five tables and the staff is not friendly or helpful. They act more like your a bother than a paying customer. Won't be back!

Stayed in local motel and this was next door. Hard to find good expresso coffee cafe,s so this was great. Also breakfast bagel sandwiches are great. So good coffee and good home made food, a great start to the Cabat Trail venture

Stopped in on our way around the Cabot Trail. Beautiful little town just off the highway. The coffee was excellent. Didn't try anything else but they had a great drink menu to meet your drink desires. Very small food menu with some sandwiches and bagels. Ordered the BLT panini. Was slow getting it but was worth the wait. Served on... More

Looking for a breakfast, we stumbled upon this place, almost next door to our hotel. Being spoilt Europeans, we try to avoid large quantities of what we consider to be a far cousin of the real coffee, and here we found good espresso, the way we like it. And the best part is, that they have these blueberry things (triangular... More

Love visiting this cafe when I am in Baddeck. The muffins and scones are delicious and always fresh! My favorite is the chocolate and peanut butter chip muffins. Mmmmm

Hubby and I stopped in here after the Alexandre graham bell museum and had a coffee and a cookie. I had the decaf and it was delish! Cookie was okay. Nothing special.

I’m fussy about coffee, but the brew here was totally satisfying and I regret that I had time for only one cup. Bean There serves what are quite possibly the best blueberry muffins in Nova Scotia. Mine was so laden with blueberries that it was on the verge of falling apart. Yum!

We wanted a light supper and thought a cafe would be the place. The menu wasn't extensive and the food, a hamburger and fried fish plate were so so. I wouldn't go back again.

We were staying at a place that did not offer breakfast and were fortunate to have a great cup of coffee at this place. Good coffee, bagels, pastries etc! Best coffee I had on my two week trip, since we were staying at places that included breakfast but the coffee that was included was very weak!
