This place was a hidden gem on our road trip! Quaint atmosphere, with some 1950's rock and roll. Warm and welcoming owners and the menu was to die for.

We stopped here en route from New Brunswick to Quebec and were absolutely delighted. The owners are warm and friendly, the service is great, the menu is diverse, and the food is SPECTACULAR. Lots of exciting, healthy and delicious options, including vegetarian and vegan. I wish I didn't live so far away from this place, because I would definitely be... More

This is one of the best kept secrets in the area. Charles and Shirley provide a service to the public that is excellent in all areas: hospitality, menu, service and environment. They take this service to the public very seriously. They spend their off time visiting other fine restaurants and improving their own menu. They enjoy receiving input on the... More

It's wonderful to enjoy food that tastes homemade. The menu has something for everyone. Charles and Shirley take special pride in their restaurant. It is definitely a place to stop in. If you're driving it will probably mean you'll have to get off the Trans Canada Hwy, you won't be disappointed. I'm usually in the area once or twice a... More

I met 2 US friends here to go over some shopping we'd done. We had tea and fun on the PATIO. What a great afternoon and view.

We stopped for dinner and came back for breakfast. It appears that each meal is made from scratch. The Bistro appears to be owned and operated by the two people who cook for and wait on you. We experienced great food and care both times we ate here. I would recommend it to everyone.

After driving along the Saint John river valley searching for somewhere to eat, we were so surprised to come upon this gem of a restaurant. The menu was so varied we had a difficult time deciding what to have. Our meals were delicious and presented very professionally. The chef came to the table to greet all customers, service was friendly... More

We were travelling and wanted to stop for coffee and a bite to eat. Turned in and found this little Bistro. The food was lovely and delicious but it took a long time. We absolutely would recommend it although if you are in a hurry maybe not the best choice.

Thank DonGeo
