We swung by for a cup of coffee and wound up getting yummy pastry and picking up a book about local history along with some local maple syrup. Friendly staff, great location, good food.

Stopped in for lunch with our baby while visiting the Cabot trail. Food was delicious, got the half sandwich and soup and it was plenty of food. There was a highchair for our baby so she loved it too!

Our sándwiches we’re freshly made and fresh baked bread was an added treat. Beddeck is a cute town that you’ll want to walk around after your lunch. We found the location after leaving the Alexander Graham Bell Historic Site and Museum.
