The modest exterior of this restaurant in New Minas contains a scrumptious secret within. I knew from friends to ask for the cellar portion of the restaurant for our lunch for an added treat. The setting was inspired, and reminiscent of my trips to Italy. The Cobb salad merited a photo, so I took one! The service was warm, responsive and we felt respected and welcomed. Delicious and an experience as well as a meal.This was my first time and I made a reservation for my anniversary the following week

We had been seeing Facebook posts popping up more and more on friends' accounts and thought it worthy of a try. Not at all disappointed. The food was absolutely excellent and this was our first try. It's moderately expensive but well worth the money. The chef has the right touch and the waiters friendly. Ask to see their formal dining room as well.

My friend and I stopped in for lunch and were greeted by a very friendly, helpful waitress. Our lunch was served promptly and with a smile. The quality and quantity of the food was excellent. Would definitely recommend McGill's Café to anyone wanting to eat out in the New Minas area.

We stop in for lunch whenever we are in the area. You can always feel comfortable that you will get good food and good service. They go out of their way to please people. The food is fresh and made from local products. Brittany always has a big smile on her face and is so pleased to help. We missed seeing Gilbert on our last visit but he is very friendly as well. Everything we have tried has been very tasty--whether it's a salad, soup sandwich, just anything.
