The food was good although the choices were limited. Bakery selections were excellent! The place seemed understaffed for perhaps an unexpected crowd on a Sunday and although they did their best, service was slow.

We stopped in to pick up pastries and they were amazing. We were very full after having just finished a filling meal (we hadn't realized we could have grabbed a meal here!) and so I only had one bite of my pastry and ate the rest the following day. It was still very fresh and absolutely heavenly! We will stop... More

We visited back in July of 2016 and my husband and I are still dreaming of the coffee and pastries we had on a perfect sunny morning in Annapolis Royal at this delightful bakery. Yes they could have had more staff to serve their patrons (I believe the bakery did have a 'help wanted' sign in their window) but the... More

We loved this little cafe in Annapolis Royal. It is right across from the Fort and was handy for a quick lunch before travelling on.

Nice sides of potato salad, red... More

We stopped in to this little German bakery for lunch on our travels in Nova Scotia. Friendly service (family run), and the food was great. Our group tried the schnitzel, Gulasch soup, and the Gulasch meal. All was really good. And, of course, we got some pastries from the bakery which was also very good. When a customer in front...

Almost next to At The Turret B&B. We dropped in for a late sandwich and a turnover and one coffee. Tuna salad on a German style Kaiser bun but it was dripping liquid, nice though; blueberry turnover was good as was the cup of coffee but $22.00 for that, way over the top.

We heard about this café at the Annapolis Royal Visitors Centre when we arrived there on Thanksgiving Sunday. We were glad the café was open. So many wonderful choices of special treats but none were priced. We chose ours and were served them along with a mug of coffee. The café is rather plain but the food is very good.... More
