Pricey by my standards but very good! They have unique offerings and I understand their menu varies from visit to visit. We were up the shore for an afternoon drive and decided to have lunch as our kids both told us we would like the food but not the price.

Took finances daughter and husband there and knowing well they would love this place. They loved everything about it. Customer service, friendly and knowledgeable along with a great menu for lunch. Hard pressed to find a place like this even in the cities. Worth the drive from anywhere.

We stop at the New Scenic Cafe every time we visit the North Shore. The menu is small, but very unique, original and tasty! Our most recent visit was on January 5, 2017 on a very cold winter day and we were not disappointed. In fact, we have never been disappointed. We enjoyed a nice lunch with a cup of... More

We came because the place was highly recommended. Our table had Sturgeon, lamb and pork. Food was very good but not very hot. Upscale gourmet food and prices. Good wait staff.

OMG - what wonderful food. We were here for lunch on a very overcast September day. The place is awesome. They have a very unique menu, original menu. None of the four of us were disappointed. The loser roll was fantastic. Service was perfect - this is an outstanding gem.
