This place used to be called island arts cafe and we visited it every time we visited Grand Manan. Glad to see it reopened!! Coffee was fresh roasted and treats were excellent. A must visit when on Grand Manan.

We enjoyed delicious lunch wraps with a side of homemade soup or chips and homemade hummus. The food was excellent. Chai tea lattes were great and baked goods for dessert were fresh and yummy, but not too sweet! Definitely a place to stop for lunch...More
