We went here for t-shirts and other Peggy's Cove and Nova Scotia souvenirs. Upstairs is a place where you can get a passport stamp or mail a postcard with a special Peggy's Cove postmark. We did not eat here, but shopping was great.

this restaurant has maritime food - fish, scallops, haddock, lobster, fish cakes, fish chowder etc, etc, and the prices are very good and the fish is fresh fresh, fresh. Great staff and service - I lost a silk scarf here and came back the following day and they had saved it for me.

If you don't bring your own meal or eat at one of the many restaurants along the way to Peggy's Cove you are simply doing yourself a disservice. This place is a trap and way overpriced. We felt rushed and crowded we ended up having a soup after looking at the menu and getting lunch on the road back to... More

When we arrived via cruise ship excursion, there was a line formed to enter this restaurant, which housed the only public restrooms for those visiting the lighthouse at Peggy's Cove. Lots of merchandise on display, but difficult to view and even more difficult to pay for selected merchandise as the line was long and slow!

We visited here for breakfast on a super sunny day. The view from our table at the restaurant was amazing. The Sea was so blue. The food was excellent.

I visited this Restaurant while on a Business Trip. We had the opportunity to visit Peggy's Cove at the right time for a meal. It was a beautiful sunny day but with a brisk cool wind as one would expect for the beginning of December. Hence the title of the review! The staff were very friendly and accomodating as there...

Had lunch here while visiting the lighthouse. Food was very good, excellent variety of seafood and non-seafood options on the menu. Waitstaff was attentive and service was quick. Prices decent for the quality of the food.

This was a second visit to this restaurant and it was during the off season. For late November I was surprised by the number of people visiting Peggy's Cove; perhaps I should not have been. Anyway, my wife and I were there for a couple of hours taking pictures. It was cold outside and fortunately the restaurant was open for... More
