Description: Nestled between highway 333 and St Margaret’s Bay, The Finer Diner is a popular stop all year long. This quaint eatery is a welcoming licensed restaurant featuring classic diner fare, Nova Scotian favorites, and playful daily specials. You will find interesting Fine Art painting and sculpture in an old fashioned setting with incredible views of the historic fishing inlet called Boutilier’s Cove. Guests can enjoy a sunset meal on our covered patio, or a slice of our homemade pie in a cozy booth. The diner is a renovated general store and has been the heartbeat of Hackett’s Cove for over 100 years. We look forward to serving you.

We stopped in here after a visit to the lighthouse at Peggy's Cove. This was a quaint local diner with plenty of seating and easy parking. We had the homemade pork sausage and the lobster club sandwich with a side of chowder. The food was good and we really enjoyed our meal. The service was attentive and very good. But...the star of the meal was the Coconut Cream Pie. I mean, this was the ABSOLUTE BEST coconut cream pie we've ever had anywhere in our lives. The owner makes it on site there. It was fresh, delicious and absolutely wonderful! Do it. Get the pie!

We stopped here after visiting Peggy's Cove. We were seated on the picturesque and busy veranda. Service was a little slow but our server - Megan - was the only one on duty! She was bussing tables, serving, and cashiering! The chef was bringing the food out to the tables. Someone had called in sick that day. We ordered the lobster roll and fish cakes and were not disappointed. The food was good, It was so busy that the patron seated at the table next to us said, 'I am a server at another place and I feel I should help'. She got up and bussed two tables! What a lovely example of beautiful Nova Scotian kindness. I have no problem recommending this restaurant to anyone.

Food was OK but nothing out of the ordinary. Lobster roll was $17 and mostly bread. The lobster BLT was short on lobster and heavy on bread and other ingredients. Sweet potato and regular fries were delicious but we stopped for the lobster. Scenic location and staff very friendly. Next time I'd order from their breakfast menu. Apparently this is a tour stop but we were on our own and it wasn't crowded.

We were visiting Peggy's Cove on Canadian Thanksgiving. Our first choices for lunch were closed and we happened by Finer Diner. The lunch was good. The server was pleasant. The place was a nice surprise. I had the club sandwich with lobster and it was excellent. I would visit again if in the area.
