A friend of mine had recommended to me many a time to go to this place to check out. I am a true admirer of food with taste, and how it is presented. I haven't been to this place as of yet, but I will be when it opens in the spring of 2017. From the pictures I have seen,... More

Espresso: Yes (If someone wants to make it) Bottled Water: Yes Arriving at very picturesque Mahone Bay, we elected to eat at TripAdvisor’s positively reviewed Jo-Ann’s Deli. We were very disappointed. My Sweetheart and I both had a Lobster sandwich. NOT good. Bread was on its last leg of semi-fresh and the lobster filling was not tasty at all. (To... More

Nice atmosphere with a wide range of choices, but entirely too over-priced. Cool to visit in October when they have a fall harvest theme with pumpkins on the roof.

Not our first underwhelming visit to Jo-Ann's, but it will certainly be our last. Thoroughly unimpressed again. I won't bore you with the details but suffice to say the chef would have known the bread roll my sandwich was made with was stale when she made it yet gave it to me anyway...... My girlfriends chicken wrap was more like... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our mid-afternoon coffee and toblerone peanut butter pie snack! We sat outside enjoying the October sunshine on their patio filled with pumpkins, hay and decorative corn stalks. What a nice afternoon stop!

We came for lunch, I had the chicken pot pie and it was excellent. My boyfriend had the macaroni and cheese, he said it was okay not overly cheesy. I had nanimo bar for dessert and it was great. He had the pumpkin cheesecake and loved it. We will return!

Visited on a windy, rainy day in October. The high winds had caused power outages in Lunenburg, Peggy's cove, and even parts of Halifax but fortunately, Mahone's Bay had power. We stopped in at Jo Ann's to get a bite to eat. I had a sandwich and a "Lord Tunderin' Oatcake" and my wife had a blueberry scone. The oatcake... More

What a great place to eat in Mahone Bay! You walk in and are overwhelmed by all the baked goods and homemade foods. The sandwiches are great, and the baked goods are to die for. Fabulous scones! It is reasonably priced and the food is excellent. I wish I could have tried to quiche, but it sold out before I... More

We were tired from a long day of driving so we decided to pop in and grab a sandwich to go and based on the reviews we saw here we chose to take out from here. We both ordered the lobster sandwich at $14 per so although smallish is size I anticipated an amazing sandwich. Was so not what I... More

We stopped in for a quick lunch en route to Lunenburg. It's a cute shop, and both the Montreal smoked meat sandwich and the baguette with brie and prosciutto were very good. In both cases, the bread was particularly outstanding. The lady who took our order was very friendly, and service was quick. We also got an oatcake for dessert.... More

Since 1986 we have delighted in providing delicious gourmet food to both residents and visitors to Mahone Bay. What started as a simple fruit stand has grown into a market, gourmet deli, bake shop, cafe, jammery and ice cream parlor.
