Plenty of treats, baked goods, ice cream plus other foods. Lots of small gift items also. Great stop to stretch you legs all while grabbing something to eat.

Stopped in for a breakfast sandwich and cinnamon rolls. Great sandwich with whatever you want on it including lettuce and tomato. Give it a try.

Went there a week ago and felt like I was going to faint it was so hot in there. I know air conditioning isn't cheap but I felt ill having been there for less than 20 minutes. The poor staff looked like they were going...to pass out any moment. At the very least, the place needs a dehumidifier. Buyer beware, the food is good but the gift shop has a crazy markup, there are better, cheaper places to go for that kind of stuff, especially if you're going around the Cabot trail.More

Just went in for a hotdog and was pleasantly surprised when I got back to my cottage. They all were practicing social distancing. I placed my order and they said I could go to my car and they will bring it out to me. Which...they did. When I got back to my cottage and opened the box the hot dog bun was quite big and soft and so good. I assumed they bake them their. They had a bakery section but there wasn’t much left at the end of the day when I went in. Just from that hot dog bun I would assume their baked goods are great!More

I was excited to visit this place to check out the food and the crafts. It was lame. Like old people expensive crafts and the restaurant was just ok nothing fancy. Super dissapointed. Was hoping for authentic food, people and crafts. I guess this might...appreal to old rich tourists?More

We had heard about the bakery at the Farmer's Daughter from family members, so on our arrival in the area we stopped in. We are here for a few days so placed our order for bread to pick up on our departure day. No problem...placing the order. Returned later in the day for a light supper. I ordered a hamburger and hubby ordered a chicken sandwich. The hamburger was tasty and cooked well but I found the bun was a little heavy for the burger. Still a tasty burger though. Hubby's chicken sandwich was excellent, on homemade white bread sliced just right. Tea was steaming hot (thank you!!) There is a small area of 3 tables for eat in service We asked about a slice of pie for dessert and we did have that option, but the server suggested buying the entire pie. A slice was $4.00 and the entire pie was $9! They sliced it for us, and gave us forks/plates to take back to the motel room. Our room has a fridge so dessert for the week! A very friendly and welcoming spot..stop in...you won't be disappointed!More

We went the first time and left because service was so slow- not enough help. The second time was the same but we had shopped in the gift shop- which has some really good local items- and we were able to cashout our bakery items...their. The oatcakes and home made bread were to die for.More

They offer quite a variety of sandwiches, several of them vegetarian, as well as a bakery and ice-cream (I think homemade). Coffee, for those who want that, is fair trade! And there are a variety of teas, jams made by by this place, and some...fruits and vegetables for sale, so it is more than just a small restaurant. There is indoor seating, and the young staff was helpfulMore
