We visited because we were driving around that area and I had read the reviews. The place was constantly busy with inside dining and a drivethru. Servers were friendly and helpful. We ordered the East Coast Scoff and it had a bit of everything. They...have the best waffle fries and deep fried pickles. I was looking forward to the deep fried ice cream but we just had too large a meal.More

This was one of the places I visited while touring on motorcycle from Atlanta, GA. The food was great and the staff very friendly and efficient. The owner even took time out of his busy morning to chat a bit with me and gave me...some background history on this restaurant. I would highly recommend this eatery all the way around!More

Colettes is a stable in Cape Breton everyone loves going here for amazing breakfast myself included, the food is amazing and the staff are as friendly as can be making it a great experience every time i go. The only thing that could be changed...is the menu could explain each item better. I think with adding this it would be better for the marketing of the amazing foodMore
