We ate here our first night in Baddeck while staying at the Silver Dart Lodge. Supper was average with good service but maybe we made the wrong food choices for supper. We ate here for breakfast our last morning and breakfast was tasty.

We had breakfast, ordered off the menu, not the buffet. Everything was great especially the freshly squeezed orange juice. Service was quick, meal was hot and freshly cooked.
