We did not eat here, but agreed that the coffee was the best we encountered on the Cabot Trail. The cafe was busy, but still had a relaxing atmosphere. Nice bathrooms!

Cute little stop while travelling to the Cabot Trail. The quality of the food and beverages is top notch. The café is cozy and friendly and the bakery items are delicious.

I've stopped here for lunch and would highly recommend it. The food is fresh and delicious. My next trip through Margaree I'm hoping to try their breakfast.

The food was simply amazing! No one in our party of six had a bad meal. In fact, some of us ordered more to go so that we could enjoy it later. Highly recommend stopping and dining here when driving the Cabot trail. The people who work here as so friendly. They also made the experience that much more enjoyable.
