Has great food, ok coffee, but sadly isn’t open on Sundays nor late evenings. Nice atmosphere. Parking available on side streets.

All fresh, home made, healthy and delicious! The only thing they need improving on is their hot chocolate. Heated up chocolate milk doesn't cut it! But the soups, wraps and home made treats - delicious!

Big serves. Shared the sandwich and still too much. Lots of choices. Busy with a great vibe. Lots of Uni students

Great food and the price is right. Very busy but worth the wait. The sandwiches were wonderful and the shakes were great. Sorry it is not a bigger place.

This place is a rare find in rural Nova Scotia. I stopped in many times during my visit to Antigonish. Good coffee, all home made treats, and healthy lunch options. The house-made bagels and smoothies were our favourites!

I think the food was okay, but the room was uncomfortably hot. Wish they had more on the breakfast menu - was very limited. We had coffee, tea, muffins, and a sandwich, but they only offer veggie sandwiches, no meat.

I had the 'famous' turkey pesto sandwich and my husband had the southwest chicken wrap - both very good! We were also very excited to try the Cove kombucha - yummy and not too sweet.

I had the good surprise to stumble upon the Tall and Small Cafe during a stop in Antigonish. I love that there are two areas in this cafe, one more lively near the counter and a quieter area in a semi-separate room. The spicy hot...More
