Quaint little spot in Wallace and cute as ever inside. Great spot for Sunday brunch with views out over the water. Great food, great service and ambiance to boot. Ideal refuge on a cold, blustery winter's day! The variety of loose leaf teas on offer...More

Great little spot with amazing food! Had the burger and it was absolutely delicious! They do not serve alcohol, however you are allowed to bring in your own wine. (if you forget, you can pick one up across the street!)

If you like eating eggs Benedict, homemade French toast, and fish cakes, while looking over the harbour , you are in the right place . Limited hours and season, but great food, friendly service, and charming atmosphere.

Hard to believe that this little eatery is tucked away in the small town of Wallace, NS. The food was excellent and the decor is very funky. We were 4 adults who stopped in for brunch and we all agreed it was well worth it....More

Response from KXC53 | Reviewed this property |
Yes, it is suitable. While it has several high tables, which might be difficult for the elderly or disabled, it also has several booths and low tables.
