The service was terrible, the sandwiches were much fancier than I expected and left my stomach upset. The coffee tasted worse than Tim’s The cookies were the best part and even those if only rate 3/5

They are consistently good! I particularly LOVE their breakfast sandwich, but everything is delish! As a vegetarian I love their veggie sandwich on porridge bread. Their Lemon Squares are to die for. The staff is pleasant and considering how busy they get, they do a...wonderful job at getting things down quickly and efficiently. A gem of a place! The one thing I don't like is it can get VERY busy in summer, so it's hard to get near the place. (good for them though! :)More

Planned on breakfast here before taking the drive around the Cabot Trail. It was amazing! Great atmosphere, super friendly staff, exceptional menu, quick service and the best part... delicious food. Really appreciated the gluten free options with staff being helpful with selections. Enough spaces to...dine in, eat outside or take away. Awesome!More

We have lost count of the number of visits to The Goat over the years. My son, who lives nearby, introduced us to this place with fantastic lunches and sweets. The soup and half sandwich combo is very filling. You will struggle to decide on...dessert, there is so much good stuff to choose from. The staff is always friendly and helpful. If you want fresh bread to take home its best to get there early or order the day before. DO NOT miss this place the next time you are driving The Cabot Trail.More

Love the Goat. Great blueberry pancakes, breakfast sandwiches and there baked goods will satisfy any sweet tooth you may have. We enjoyed breakfast there at least 3 times during our visit to the Margaree area.

I honestly don’t know how anyone could rate this anything less than 5 stars. We really enjoyed the yoghurt parfait and the cranberry scones. The cinnamon roll was insanely delicious. Nice clean bathrooms if this is a stop on your road trip. We also ordered...a sandwich for the road and we were really happy that we did because it was served on super fresh bread and it really was the best ever egg salad sandwich. Very friendly service. We were also surprised how reasonable the prices were as well.More

It was a cool, rainy day and we were so happy to find a local coffee shop. Caramel lattes, cranberry almond scone and banana cake were all excellent. My husband had a chicken sandwich which he was also impressed with.

In the middle of nowhere is this fantastic cafe and bakery which would be at home in downtown Chicago or Toronto. Lovely selection of breads, baked goods, sandwiches and breakfast foods. Very popular but fast service.

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
