Ross Patterson became the Noodle Guy in 2010 with a stand at the Wolfville Farmers’ Market, and opened a small storefront in Port Williams in 2011. Three years later, he moved a few doors south to a larger space with room for a handful of tables. Despite the presence of said tables, Ross refused to call the business a “restaurant”, and focused on selling pasta, sauces, and other grocery items for people to take home; serving prepared food on site was a secondary concern. In January 2016, The Noodle Guy was named best restaurant in Nova Scotia in the not-in-Halifax category by Bill Spurr, the restaurant critic for The Chronicle Herald, and Ross finally acknowledged that it is indeed a restaurant. He has even acquired a liquor licence!
The Noodle Guy sells fresh pasta and sauces of all kinds, as well as a selection of olive oils, vinegars, preserves and other local products, and T.A.N. coffee. Take-out is also available. All of our noodles and sauces are made by hand with ingredients that are as fresh and local as possible.
