There is a great little atmosphere going on here at the Island Arts Cafe. Also, hands down, the best latte I've ever had. I would return to Grand Manan just to drink another latte. Staff are also lovely and friendly. Great place, and delicious treats.

There are no Tim's on Grand Manan and so we dropped in this place for coffee and muffin and found this cafe to have a nice ambience and fresh/good coffee. I also had a soup which was excellent. The service was very friendly.

Went each morning for a coffee and breakfast sandwich (actually a croissant with ham and cheese) it was amazing - and the coffee was excellent! They were even plaing Leonard Cohen! Doesn't get better than that!

After an early three thirty a.m. wake up and a two and half hour drive to catch the ferry, we crossed over, got off the boat, and within five minutes we were already sipping on a real good cup of coffee. The service was great,...More

This cafe was one of the few highlights of our time on Grand Manan. We visited every morning for coffee and a breakfast snack prior to whale-watching. Their muffins are delicious and packed with healthy stuff. Coffee was also good. There is very good free...More
