March break 2022

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.

2021 holiday hours

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!

breakfast is back!

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.

expanded summer hours, and a patio!

We are happy to announce that we have finally received the go-ahead to open our outdoor seating area! Weather permitting, we are having live music out there on Wednesdays from 4-7.

We’ve also added to our hours of opening: we’re open at 11am Tuesday through Saturday, closing at 7pm Tuesday through Thursday, and at 8pm Friday and Saturday.

today is re-opening day!

We are so excited to re-open the dining room today! We’ll be following all public health protocols so we’re not up to full capacity, but we hope to see as many of our loyal customers as we can!

closed again…

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!

taking it day by day

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.

UPDATE: Thursday, April 22, 2021

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!
