    Trellis Cafe: Roadside Cafe in Hubbards

    by tvor Written Jun 19, 2013

    We went for a drive on a Sunday afternoon towards the south of Nova Scotia. We drove around the Aspotogan peninula through little towns like Blandford and East River and when you come around the loop you are back through the village of Hubbards. Hubbards is pretty and picturesque. There are a few little cafes and antique stores along the road and a private beach as well. The Trellis Cafe is located beside an antique shop so we thought we'd kill two birds with one stone.

    The cafe is brightly painted inside with local artwork. Wooden tables and chairs cover the two rooms of the cafe and sometimes they also offer local entertainment. The menu isn't extensive but what they offer is really good. They use organic food where they can and fair trade coffee. Soups, salads, starters, sandwiches, pasta, breakfast brunch items, fresh seafood and meat and they do a few yummy vegetarian dishes as well. The desserts are amazing! Tea is served in a teapot, too!

    The cafe has free wifi, and a ramp for easy access. The staff is very friendly and efficient as well. Prices below are lunch prices, would be more for dinner.

    Favorite Dish: I had seafood chowder and it was perfect! My partner had a burger and said it was really very good.

    WHEELHOUSE MOTEL & DINING ROOM: LOBSTER - YEAH BABY

    by LoriPori Updated Sep 27, 2012

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Monday, September 10, 2012
    Nancy, the Manager at the WHEELHOUSE MOTEL & DINING ROOM ordered Hansi a Lobster for our dinner, for which we made reservations for 5:00 p.m. Hansi was not disappointed! The Lobster was HUGE and came with a ton of mussels, caesar salad and garlic bread - all for $24.99. I had the Fish & Chips Dinner which came with two pieces of fried fish, french fries and roll.
    All in all a great experience.

    FAMILY RESTAURANT: RESTAURANT IN MIDDLETON NS

    by LoriPori Written Sep 26, 2012

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Saturday, September 8, 2012
    There wasn't much to choose from in restaurants in Middleton. We chose the FAMILY RESTAURANT as we liked the menu there. I had a hamburger deluxe plate that included their home-made french fries which were delicious. I had so much, I shared with Hans. Hans had chicken fingers which he said were too crunchy and just OK.

    NOVA SCOTIA ANTHONY PICNIC PARK: PICNIC ON COBEQUID BAY

    by LoriPori Written Sep 26, 2012

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Saturday September 8, 2012
    We were driving west along the Cobequid Bay (Route #215) and as it was getting to lunch time, we started looking for a spot to have a picnic. We spotted the NOVA SCOTIA ANTHONY PICNIC PARK. What a beautiful spot it was. It had a picnic table right near the bay and we claimed it as ours. We brought out what we wanted to have for lunch and laid it all out on the picnic table. It was such a glorious, sunny day.

    Le Caveau: Amazing seafood fricasee

    by tvor Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Le Caveau is a restaurant on the estate of Domaine de Grand Pre winery. It's open for lunch and for dinner for fine dining. They also have an outdoor piazza called La Pergola where they will serve you or hold functions such as weddings. They have martini nights and local live music as well. Of course the wines made at the winery feature on the menu and they're very good indeed. We had lunch there and everything on the menu looked tempting.

    Favorite Dish: I had a seafood friccasee which is like a chowder but without the potatoes. Huge pieces of fish and shellfish including lobster, scallop and shrimp in an extremely tasty broth. My mother had a herb and garlic soup which she really liked and we shared a large slice of apple cheesecake. To. Die. For. Lunch ... soup, dessert and tea was $20 so it's not really cheap but it's also well worth the money. There is wheelchair access to the restaurant though the toilets are upstairs. (They may have one downstairs for disabled access, i'm not sure and the piazza can be reached by paths as well as steps)

    Murphy's: Fish and Chips in Truro

    by tvor Updated Aug 11, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Half way between the Nova Scotia border and Halifax is the town of Truro. A nice stopping point for a little shopping. The downtown core has some nice shops including Stanfield's underwear outlet and if you get hungry, go to Murphy's for a feed of fish and chips! They give huge portions and the staff are friendly as all get out. They have a full seafood menu including fish, scallops, clams and shrimp and you can also fill up on liver and onions, turkey dinner, steak, burgers, salads and sandwiches. They have lovely pies for desserts but you probably won't have room! Find it in the middle of a strip "mall" shopping center in the middle of the town by the railway station.

    Favorite Dish: Fish and Chips!

    Kellock's: Berwick cafe

    by tvor Updated Aug 11, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In the small town of Berwick, Nova Scotia in the heart of the Annapolis Valley, we came across a fairly new restaurant. It's only been open a year and it's in a renovated old Victorian house on the main street in Berwick. It's got 3 or 4 small rooms with wooden tables and chairs. Diamond stained glass in the windows, antique lamps, a lovely mirror covered in wrought iron, a fireplace with a painting of wine bottles over it. The bartender that served us was really friendly and the menu had enough on it to satisfy most. I didn't notice too many vegetarian options aside from the salads. We each had something different and really liked all of it.

    Favorite Dish: I had the steak sandwich on a multi grain roll with cheese, horseradish mayo and lovely fresh veggies. The french fries are made of Yukon Gold potatoes and were quite possibly the best i've ever had. My mom had fresh cream of mushroom soup and a turkey salad sandwich on multi grain bread and my sister had chicken wings and fries.

  • Sugar Moon: Maple Sugar Shack, Scenic Woods, and more

    by vickiv2 Written Jan 11, 2009

    If you are looking for a really "Canadian" experience - or you just want to mellow out - this is the place to go. Located about 1 1/2 hours north of Halifax in the woods. At the end of a long dirt lane there is a log cabin in the woods. It is heated by a huge woodstove and a stone fireplace. They serve pancakes and waffles mainly, made with stone ground flour of some kind, and there are usually blueberries available as an upgrade. They also offer local sausages, eggs, etc. And of course maple syrup - the real stuff and lots of it - they make it at a sugar shack and if you ask nicely, you can take a walk through their sugar maple woods - of course you have to promise not to damage the trees. Personally, I don't really care that much for stone ground flour in my pancakes, but its healthy food, and the ambience is wonderful. Its all very environmental as they have composting toilets (which don't smell bad - in fact better than regular). They also have gourmet nights on occasion with fancy chefs that are very pricey but good. Oh, if you have a really low slung or new expensive car you may want to pass on this because the 1 km. lane is rocks and dirt - also soft and slippery in early spring.

    Favorite Dish: The waffles are better than the pancakes (not sure why) and the maple butter makes a perfect accent.
    There are also many worthwhile tourist destinations in the area such as the Grist Mill (great hikes) and the beach at Tatamagouche.

    Baddeck Lobster Suppers: Fresh lobster - Atlantic Canada style

    by MikeBird Updated Sep 30, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It was my 50th birthday and I wanted to have a memorable meal to round off the truly wonderful day spent on the schooner looking for whales ( never mind that we didn't see any that day).

    We'd heard good things about the traditional feel to the restaurant - the red and white checked tables, the truly fresh lobsters straight from the bay and the welcoming , bustling atmosphere of the place. We were not disappointed. We started with the unlimited clam chowder and bread roll. That was good for filling us up because, although the lobster is tasty, it's probably not the most filling of foods.
    The main course was the lobster. We had one each. My kids had to be shown what to do but we all managed and we enjoyed the experience.
    My vegetarian son come unstuck though. They managed to do something with scrambled egg on toast in the end but when we were told at the doorway they could do him a salad - "but it does have some ham in it" we were a little dismayed. Never mind our son was very sanguine about it - after all it was my birthday treat.
    It was a really nice evening and one that we'll remember for a long time to come.
    The photo is courtesy of the restaurant's website - see below.

    Favorite Dish: The lobster was very good but I think I would have liked some vegetables etc to counter it.

    Windjammer Motel and Restaurant: Fresh Everything on the South Shore

    by tvor Written Jul 1, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Windjammer restaurant has been in place for decades. I haven't been there for over 20 years but I went recently and it's still as good as it ever was, possibly better. It's unassuming, but with nice tablecloth covered tables and wooden chairs. The menu has lots of fresh Nova Scotia seafood as well as other standards, burgers, soups, salads, sandwiches.

    Favorite Dish: I had a cup of seafood chowder that was all fish, shrimp, lobster, scallop and cream. Not one potato in the bowl and it was heaven! They also make a mean strawberry milkshake! They have a takeout window as well if you want to pick something up for a picnic.

    Tim Horton's: Not just coffee

    by easterntrekker Written Oct 17, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you just want a quick bite, Tim Horton' s coffee shops are everywhere. They are fast , cheap and the sanwiches , soups and chili are really good.

    Everyone in Canada will think its crazy to even mention them as a tip...they are so well known ...but maybe from other places you wouldn't know about them.

    The Souwester: A Place for all Mariners

    by scottishvisitor Updated Oct 8, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Souwester Restaurant has a nautical feel as you would expect given its location at Peggy's Cove, people come here by the bus load, so be prepared for lengthy queue. It offers a wide range of meals, snacks & drinks. There is also a great gift shop selling lots of seaside gifts.

    Favorite Dish: With so much coastal water surrounding the area fresh seafood is the natural choice. We had the Atlantic planked salmon smoothered in maple syrup followed by Cows Icecream.
