We enjoyed this market stand with sandwich shop and bakery. We had the soup and lobster sandwich combination with a side of mac and cheese and a bakery treat for dessert. Service was quick and friendly. You seat yourself on the covered open air lot....More

We were drawn to the Bake Shop by it's fantastic pumpkin display and it was the first place we saw for a quick snack. The shop had a nice display of savoury and sweet. We opted for a sausage roll and a fish cake with...More

It was so disappointing to go to this lovely town by the ocean and have food which was expensive and very mediocre.

I'm surprised by some of the negative reviews of this place - my husband and I went this August on a couple occasions and really enjoyed the food and ambiance of this cute shop. We got a couple salads, a slice of the delicious peanut...More

Don't drive by, stop in and enjoy the incredible and vast array of amazing delicacies all homemade with love and the freshest of ingredients. Resembles a country store and café. Charming outside covered terrace area for relaxing!

We have been here several times over the years and have been treated poorly each time - we always feel like pests!! The employees seem disinterested at best and condescending at worst. It’s actually a little shocking that people choosing to work in a customer...More

The person behind the counter has a really bad attitude and acts like she is doing you a favour by taking your order. Her self absorbed demeanor could explain why she can't accurately take an order. The set up of the restaurant is confusing -...More

I have loved dropping in here for years for the awesome raspberry shortbread cookies. They were always truly yummy with a perfect crumb and texture. Last two times cookies were dry and bland...no longer craving them. Perhaps a new baker or recipe?? Also recently had...More

Really sorry to read your review. I will make sure the cookies are fluffy and the lobster sandwich has no shells. I am happy to offer you another sandwich on the house. I'm sorry you were not properly taken care of.

We didn't have a good experience here. We bought about $60 worth of sandwiches here. I asked to use the bathroom and was told that bathrooms were "for customers only!" by whom I assume was the owner. When our sandwiches were ready for pickup, they...More

Hi Rich, I'm really sorry to read your review, very disheartening. I would have been happy to go to your father's car for the receipt. We do need verification of payment.

Description
Since 1986 we have delighted in providing delicious gourmet food to both residents and visitors to Mahone Bay. What started as a simple fruit stand has grown into a market, gourmet deli, bake shop, cafe, jammery and ice cream parlor.
