Enjoyed lunch with a friend here and loved it. Nicely decorated with small tables this is an order at the cash type place with great displays of food. A large menu hangs on the wall with a lot of choices. It also has a small espresso machine.

The food was good, baked goods were fresh, service was reasonable, and the atmosphere was cozy. I arrived with a group and we were all pleased with the food. There were lots of locals there as well, so this is a pretty good indication of whether the place will be ok. Only had breakfast there; cannot comment on lunch.

After having a really nasty dinner at the Coastal Waters Restaurant the night before and not eating most of it, we were quite hungry. We ordered a breakfast wrap and a basic breakfast and both were fast, hot, and delicious:)

And what a lovely little spot it is. Everything is made to order, and delicious. I had their egg/sausage/cheese/English muffin breakfast sandwich. My wife had a bowl of steel-cut oatmeal generously garnished with raisins and walnuts. Coffee was generous in a large mug, ditto the tea. We just had to try a home-baked cinnamon snail and it was also excellent.... More

We've been here before for dessert and coffee, but this was our first visit for lunch. We had the seafood chowder which was creamy and tasty with a homemade biscuit and butter: delicious. We also had the smoked meat sandwich. This was so good! The bread they used was so fresh and full of flavour. The coffee her is very... More

We hit Ingonish towards the end of our trip, and my husband was kind enough to run out and get breakfast to go, so I didn't get to go inside - but he tells me it was nice. The food however, was DELICIOUS. The pancakes were among the best I have ever had, the cinnamon rolls were delicious and my... More
