Best crab sandwich ever. Packed with crab. Was a bit surprised not to see any type of garnish whatsoever but who cares. I’ll be back next year just to eat there.

We’ve been here for several days and this has been the best meal we’ve had by miles. The crab sandwich is amazing and it’s packed with crab. You honestly could not fit any more crab between two pieces of bread! All the pastries and scones were also delicious. You owe it to yourself to come here.

A lovingly renovated old home (second oldest in Ingonish) now houses a great coffee bar, bakery and cafe. Breakfast and lunch in a great setting.

We stopped in for a quick coffee on our way through Ingonish. Delicious coffee, and we really enjoyed the power cookies and gluten free date squares. Great selection of gluten free and vegan baked goods. We wished we had made it a stop for lunch, as the menu looked just a delicious. The adjacent shop has beautiful jewellery, I purchased a silver knot ring and it was a little snug but they fitted it for me on the spot. Glad we came across it!

Limited menu but enough choices if you're hungry. Basically a self serve place - you order and they bring the food to your table, but never to be seen again. My wife's chai latte was uninspired and overpriced - probably made from a powder. Our eggs came with toast, but you have to pay extra for jam!
