We were tired from a long day of driving so we decided to pop in and grab a sandwich to go and based on the reviews we saw here we chose to take out from here. We both ordered the lobster sandwich at $14 per so although smallish is size I anticipated an amazing sandwich. Was so not what I expected. In fact it was the worst Lobster sandwich/roll I have ever had in my east coast visits. All I could taste was salt, no Lobster and the consistency of the filling was that of a cheap tuna salad. Will not be going back there anytime soon. I will say that this is the first time this app steered me wrong.

We stopped in for a quick lunch en route to Lunenburg. It's a cute shop, and both the Montreal smoked meat sandwich and the baguette with brie and prosciutto were very good. In both cases, the bread was particularly outstanding.

The lady who took our order was very friendly, and service was quick.

We also got an oatcake for dessert. It was bland, so we tossed it and went next door for a sweet treat. (In fairness, they do offer an oatcake coated with chocolate so that might've been a better choice.)

The only thing that keeps this from being a 4-star review is that the man at the checkout counter was curt to the point of being rude, even though the shop was not busy. And apparently there is no public washroom. (Is that even possible in a place that serves food?)

We stopped here to get coffee and some kind of snack. As we walked in, they were taking blueberry scones out of the oven. Ohhhh, so good! My husband opted for a large cookie, and he said that was good, too. And the coffee was fresh and hot.

It's a neat place, with great-looking produce beautifully displayed. Lots of home-made bakery items, sandwiches. If we had been staying in the area, we'd have gone back as often as possible!

Offers a very inexpensive option for visitors tired of high priced restaurants. They have many delicious items in the deli case they will heat up for you to eat on the patio or package to take back to your room to be heated in micro wave. Wish we'd found it earlier! Does close at 6 PM so be aware.
