We stopped here on a family vacation. The service wasn’t great and the menu was limited but we also went in the off season so that may be why. The food was simple- nothing to write home about. Cute location with lots of character though

This was a delightful (and colorful) place for lunch, very good bakery and fine coffee. Chester is a nice little fishing village not far from Lunenburg and Peggy's Cove (and far less crowded with tourists), with a number of shops along with the scenic harbor....More

Consistently good food, baked goods and even a little grocery area with ample seating make this little spot in Chester a real gem! Recommend for a good cup of coffee, omelets and desserts!
