On March 16, 2020, the front page of the Chronicle Herald announced the “first presumptive cases” of COVID in Nova Scotia. Since then, we’ve been open, closed, open, closed, open for take-out, open for delivery, closed, open with limited capacity, open with slightly less limited capacity, open with reduced capacity again…but with great gratitude to our customers and staff, we’ve been mostly sort of open one way or another for the last two years.
We are both hopeful and nervous about the lifting of restrictions in Nova Scotia on March 21. We’ll be taking it day by day and making adjustments as necessary. One of those adjustments is a long-overdue hard look at our prices. We’ve held the line on our menu prices for years despite rising food costs (totally out of our control) and rising labour costs (totally within our control and we are living-wage advocates, so no complaints there), but the latest food cost increases have forced our hand.
We’ve made the difficult decision to close the dining room (again) and return to take-out only (again) for who knows how long. Like everyone else, we’re trying to make the best decisions with the best information available to us for our staff, our customers, our community, and of course ourselves too.
We can take orders by phone or walk-in during the following hours:
December 22 11am-6pm December 23 11am-6pm December 24 11am-2pm closed December 25 through December 29 December 30 11am-6pm December 31 11am-6pm closed January 1 through January 3 back to “normal” hours January 4
Sorry, no breakfast service until we can re-open the dining room again. Omelettes don’t travel well!
We are now serving breakfast Tuesday through Saturday from 9-11am! We have our famous breakfast things, an omelette, a quiche, a yogurt bowl, home fries, and muffins…and sometimes we have specials like this amazing fried egg sandwich pictured above.
Dear friends, we are making the difficult decision to close for at least the next several days. We think this is in the best interests of our staff, our customers, and the community. We will pay attention to the case numbers and the guidance from Public Health and re-open as soon as we feel it is safe to do so. Thank you for your understanding and your support. We hope to see you soon!
We’re paying attention to the news and the numbers and will stay open regular hours for TAKE-OUT only until we feel it’s a good idea to open the dining room again. We are going to take things day by day for a while! Ross has some excellent take-out specials planned for the week. We are exploring options for online ordering, but for now, it’s just our one phone line, so if you don’t get through, please do try again. Thank you everyone for your patience and support! For fun, here is a photo from happier (and sillier) times.
Thank you, everyone, for your support and understanding. Most of us have received negative test results and we are just waiting for a few more.
We are going to open Friday and Saturday for take-out only. We will NOT be opening for breakfast this Saturday; omelettes do not travel well! If the case numbers in the Western zone stay under control, we will open the dining room with reduced seating on Tuesday.
The encouragement and support from the community has been overwhelming. Stay well, everybody!
