The morning muffin was delicious but the date crisp/bar stole the morning. Loved the way they served coffee in mugs. The baristas were calm, friendly and efficient. A great place indeed.

Delicious cheese sandwich with excellent fresh salad. Baking looked good but no room!! A big selection of sandwiches, wraps, soups etc. Busy near the FX university but lots of room and a good space.

This is a lovely quirky cafe in Antigonish where good coffee is hard to find! After a long day on the road we were delighted to randomly encounter this cafe, which provided good strong cappuccinos and delicious brownies to boot. We went back the next day for seconds and it is was just as pleasing. Would recommend!

terrible service, not enough help to keep the tables and furniture clean. One grill cheese sandwich should not take 1/2 hr to make!

My Family and I are repeat customers as the staff are so friendly and the food and drinks are fantastic! While the place does fill up fast the staff are always welcoming and It is very popular with the students in town. Keep up the excellent service!

Fabulous little place with quite a variety of foodstuffs, smoothies, etc. I had the lentil walnut burger and salad with orange poppy seed dressing. The best. It's sometimes hard for vegetarians to find truly yummy treats--and this was definitely a treat. (BTW: lots of meat-based options, too.)

Menu is house made. I enjoyed home made granola with yogurt and cranberries with a side of toast. My husband had a chicken burger. Coffees were excellent, beans ground on sight. Also art work is on display and for sale.
