Awesome place to get some treats or a really good sandwich. We love to sit at the picnic tables while eating enjoying the water. Great bake items at a colourful place that always seems busy.

We were hungry, we stopped . The food was ok, but the smiles behind the counter were genuine. A quick stop.

I am absolutely obsessed with this place! Any time I'm in the area it is a must-go for the amazing selection of baked goods. Not only that, but the sandwiches are truly divine, the service is very cheerful and the location is lovely. Highly recommend!

Keep an eye out for this roadside gem, blink and you might miss it! It's worth the stop for the bright colored exterior and outdoor seating with a great view! The food is the icing on top. We tried the Montreal smoked meat sammy and a bowl of split pea soup. Both were delicious, fresh and prepared quickly. Staff was... More

We stopped here for lunch as we were attracted to the paint job on the side of this restaurant. The sandwiches ( egg salad and BLT) were quickly prepared, very fresh and tasty, and LARGE. We ordered two bags of fries that were so big we could only eat one of them. Good Value.

Beautiful spot to sit and watch the birds seeking their lunch and have a lunch. Poutine is good and burgers are cooked nicely. And to see a grill filled with baloney and guests waiting at their picnic table overlooking a inlet.. As we were eating our lunch on a beautiful sunny fall day a duck was stranded in the inlet...

Had the BLT with garlic mayonnaise and it was exceptional. Very friendly and perky staff. Smelled heavenly with all the pastry in there.

Simply excellent brisket, cooked or rather smoked to perfection in Montreal and then steamed gently at home site. Served with peppered dijon, it was served on rye. I saw the signs indicating it was recognized as excellent for several years. Thoroughly deserved. I can only talk about the brisket. If there is a better sandwich anywhere I haven't eaten it....

Montreal Smoked Meat and hand cut fries and eat out on the picnic tables beside the salt water. What could be better? Very tempting bakery as well.
