Yummy yummy yummy! We ordered the pan fried haddock with baked potato and the meat pie. Both were delicious and plentiful. If you find yourself in a hurry just slow down....the service is friendly, conscientious and relaxing. This spot is one of my new favourites....More

Family owned, fun place. Great for breakfast or for a light supper. There is not too much on the menu if you don't like seafood (a couple of Italian dishes). But my wife swears she had the best Fish & Chips ever (a huge piece...More

I sent my fish cake's back because they were burned. They made me another, witch I appreciated. Overall, the 7 members of my party were not happy.

Clean,inviting open dining area: l can speak for the haddock dinner and meat pie dinner; both were excellent ! Server friendly and attentive; complimentary soup- help yourself to it -also very good. Located next to the Bluenose Inn- a little hard to find.

We are coming to town over the Canada Day holiday and heard that you have live fiddle music - can you tell me if this is a regular occurrence, or perhaps if you have plans to have live entertainment anytime surrounding July 1st?

Café l’Acadie's owner Gary Le Blanc was born into a large Acadian family where both parents hail from the Acadian village of Cheticamp Nova Scotia area and with an enormous extended family, Acadian food, music and culture were the heartbeat of our family life. Our home was the 'gathering place' for friends and relatives. My mother loved to cook and growing up, I could sit for hours and listen to her sing all the old traditional Acadians songs as she scurried about the kitchen cooking. On special occasions, I would watch in amazement at the fiddlers, mandolin and guitar players sitting around the kitchen table, while the rest would sing out loud and strong, Acadian songs of old. With Fricot on the stove, Rappie and Rabbit Pies in the oven and desserts galore, it all fed the soul. Café l’Acadie brings many of these Acadian culinary treasures from my family's kitchen to our dining room to share this rich history of delicious food.
