We had a very pleasant lunch of soups and sandwiches. Homemade and tasty. They also make bag lunches that should be a good value those visiting the nearby Cape Breton Highlands Park.

Two mornings of our trip I picked up a quick breakfast to go from here. The kids enjoyed the home made cinnamon buns and scones; I appreciated the gluten free smoothie bowl and baked goods. A nice pleasant stop in Baddeck.
