Food was OK but nothing out of the ordinary. Lobster roll was $17 and mostly bread. The lobster BLT was short on lobster and heavy on bread and other ingredients. Sweet potato and regular fries were delicious but we stopped for the lobster. Scenic location...More

Nestled between highway 333 and St Margaret’s Bay, The Finer Diner is a popular stop all year long. This quaint eatery is a welcoming licensed restaurant featuring classic diner fare, Nova Scotian favorites, and playful daily specials. You will find interesting Fine Art painting and sculpture in an old fashioned setting with incredible views of the historic fishing inlet called Boutilier’s Cove. Guests can enjoy a sunset meal on our covered patio, or a slice of our homemade pie in a cozy booth. The diner is a renovated general store and has been the heartbeat of Hackett’s Cove for over 100 years. We look forward to serving you.
