I had some great squash and something soup. and the best almond milk cafe au lait I have had in a long time. Quite a happening place... More

The first time we visited, we ordered coffee to go as the place was jammed packed! The second time, we went for breakfast. Again, it was quite crowded but worth the wait!

I have mixed feelings about this place , we went a first time for breakfast the service and the food were nice, nothing too complicated do, eggs bacon etc. But everything was well done and the price was fair for the quality. Second time we went was another story. Instead of giving us a table the waitress told us to... More

We would eat lunch here every day if we could. The service is always friendly and welcoming, in French or English. They are often busy, but the servers do the best they can. The food has always been excellent when we have eaten there. The lentil soup, a little on the spicy curry side, is consistently delicious. The scallop ceviche... More

This is my favorite spot in the Maggies for clam chowder. It is served in a bread bowl which is excellent year after year. Good little restaurant for lunch after a nice walk on the "Grave". Don't miss the fish cake either.

Rustic style cafe located on chemin principal (or route 199) in Havre Aubert that came highly recommended by friends. Limited breakfast menu. We ordered their croissants with cheese and cretons (delicious) accompanied by excellent lattes. Service warm and efficient. Only wish that they opened earlier than 9AM. Excellent value.

Excellent lunch spot in La Grave. I had the cod cakes and my wife had the ham and cheese croissant. We also downed a few pints of the local brew.

This was the spot we choose for our last night. It's house in what appears to be an old fish shack which gives it great character. There is also an outside terrace overlooking the bay and sunsets. We sat beside a piano and ordered seal poutine and elk sausages. The poutine was huge! Desert was cheese cake which was also... More
