My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our breakfast at the Dancing Goat Cafe & Bakery. Since my husband is Celiac it can be difficult to find gluten free items. Look no more! Dancing Goat can provide some gluten free options and even some sweet treats!...We were happy campers.More

The food is really good; the building is nice & has a fair amount of seating. However, on my 2020 visit, the wait-staff seemed to be stressed and rushing people to order and leave right after eating. I would suggest that managers and staff polish...their hospitality and customer service, to complement their excellent food and pleasant restaurant setting. Stop by & try the food, but try and avoid the high-traffic times.More

We arrived near 12h20-25 on a Saturday (maybe the worst timing) and there was a line-up outside : my command was confirmed at 12h35 and it was 2 cold sandwich (banh mi). Because of covid, we had to wait near our car but not too...far to hear them call our name. It took 35 minutes before they call me… Sandwich were dam good, very excellent and big. Porridge bread was to die for ! Price was good too. But it was a 50 min stop for 2 take-out sandwich. Was it worth it ? I don’t know. Probably. But be aware of that. That’s the reason I don’t give 5 stars.More

Coffee and breakfast, sounds like a perfect stop for us. Enjoyed the pancakes with the buttery syrup. Parking lot was full of cars with lots of people . Friendly staff were helpful keeping everyone spaced out and moving. Finally found out why it’s a favourite...in the areaMore

I went with my friend and they were extremely rude, yelling at the customers, kicking people out, etc

We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch of delicious soup and a sandwich at this lovely cafe. The bread was so fresh and the servings were generous. The coffee was very tasty too. Drop by for a meal and a coffee - you won’t be sorry!

Came here because I needed a lunch packed for my hiking adventure in cape Breton highlands. I had checked out their menu ahead of time and decided sandwich and a salad would be perfect for my day. I didn’t anticipate having the BEST sandwich in...the world. The bread is so fresh and tasty. The sandwich is packed with protein and flavors. The salad was equally delicious and the chicken was the perfect addition with the right about of texture and moisture. Price was accordingly. I heard some people complain about it being expensive- it wasn’t. Also the coffee is SUPER tasty!! 10/10 recommend. If I lived in the area I’d be here regularly.More
