Their frozen meat pies are great as are their cookies and fresh baked goods. I would suggest they put a better/more efficient system in place for paying. There are two counters however no one know where the line starts to pay. Sometimes there is one...line, then each person goes to whichever counter is free. But sometimes there are two lines and no one knows which is to order food and which is to simply pay for an item and leave. Both? And none of the staff ever explain. If you want to grab a loaf of bread and get out, you can wait forever due to the line confusion which often results in others who just arrived being served before you because randomly one line became two. I suggest they make it one single line, clearly marked, then each person goes to whichever counter is open, just like you do in a bank. Counter confusion is my only complaint, otherwise lots of love!More

We stopped in when we were in the area. I discovered covered bridge potato chips there. They are awesome! Also got some hot pepper cheese that was good.

Awful service. They ignored me in line behind another customer and then served someone who was after me at another counter. Couldn't believe it. I have seen their service deteriorate over the last few years. I will not go back.

was staying in whycocomagh for a few days so we stopped in here several times. The food choices are plentiful and from what I sampled very good for a country store. The coffee is solid and the breakfast sandwiches were large and hit the spot!...They do a lot of baked goods and I wanted to try them all but sadly I did not. I will say though that their lemon square type bar was absolutely amazing. I love me a good lemon square but this thing was above and beyond and had frosting on top! At just under $7 it lasted me like 3 days and was well worth it! I would have like to see more pantry items and everyday stuff that one needs from a general store, the gift shop part of the farmers daughter seemed more like space that could have been better used for these type of items since you are out in a rural surrounding.More

A great stop on Cape Breton Island! The baked goods are to die for and the filled buns were fresh & hot filled with lots of flavour. Enjoyed the stop on the way in & again on our way home. Their oatcakes, molasses cookies &...snickerdoodles made their way back to BC in my carry-on! The gift shop is well stocked but not what we stopped for.More

First time back since my last review. The eggs were good. The sausage were excellent, better than most I have had. The scrambled were cooked as they should be. My personal preference is home fries on the grill, but the deep fried one were as...good as anywhere else. So worth the return trip.More

We had the frozen chili, chicken pot pie, and shepherd's pie. They were all really tasty, reasonably priced, and a nice change from restaurant food while we were traveling. We also had a few of their bakery items which did not disappoint, and the attached...gift shop had lots to offer. It was just a all round fun place to shop at.More

Stopped by a couple of times. Only food that disappointed anybody was the hamburger, kind of meh. Poutines were really good. Went back for a second time and ordered wraps (crispy chicken) and they were huge, filling and good

This is a spot not to miss! Right on the highway. They have delicious cookies (8 huge cookies I think) for just $6. Artisan sandwiches and wraps, and their unique florabuns.

My wife and I drove about 40km to Farmer's Daughter today because we were craving ice cream. I ordered 3 scoops of ice cream in a cup, my wife ordered a soft serve. The young woman at the counter told me that I could only...buy 2 scoops of ice cream. I asked why, to which she explained that there were only the following portions to choose from: Small, Medium & Large! Now I ordered 3 scoops „small“ in one cup! This was also not possible, probably because the young lady was not able to add 3 x 2,50$. In short, we left the store and went to the neighboring CoOp. There was just a good offer. 1 liter of ice cream (vanilla with black cherry) for $4.99. We have then comfortably eaten at home. Here the daughter of the farmer should train her staff a little better, Sales optimization goes differently!More

This was a great stop along the road for our family. We had lunch, ice cream, and let the kids play on the playground a bit. Everything was delicious. There’s also a little market and gift shop to check out.
