FAQs

Can I make a reservation?
Yes! Please call (902) 697-3906.

Do you have gluten-free (or dairy-free or vegan or whatever) pasta?
We have some items that do not themselves contain gluten, but nothing is truly gluten-free when there is flour all over the place! If you have celiac disease, we recommend Crystany’s Brasserie in Canning which is genuinely 100% gluten-free.

We have a few items that are dairy-free and/or vegan.

We have tried our best to accommodate the ever-changing array of dietary restrictions and preferences over the years, but it seems our best is never good enough, so goodbye to all that. Even pre-COVID, special orders and substitutions were a wrench in the works that slowed things down for everyone and increased the likelihood of mistakes and less-than-perfect products. In this new reality, with fewer staff and increased safety protocols, we just can’t do it.

Can I see a menu​?
Sure! It’s on our website: https://thenoodleguy.wordpress.com/menu/

What’s the burger this week?
Burger night is on hold indefinitely.

Can I freeze your pasta?
You can, but we wouldn’t recommend it. Uncooked pasta freezes very well, but ours is par-cooked and tossed in extra-virgin olive oil and the texture suffers from freezing and thawing.

How long does your pasta keep?
We sell it as fast as we can make it, so the pasta you buy is extremely fresh. The sooner you use it, the better it is, but it will keep well in the fridge for several days.

Do you do take-out?
Yes! Please call (902) 697-3906 to place your order.

Are you licensed?
Yes. We have a small but thoughtful selection of wines (from here and from far, by the glass or the bottle), beer (draught and bottled), and cider (ditto).

What are your hours?
Hours are posted on our website: https://thenoodleguy.wordpress.com/hours/

Is there parking?
There is free parking on all four sides of our building. There is street parking (parallel only) in front of us on Main Street and beside us on Kars Street, and there is a large parking area behind the building. There are also some spaces (parallel parking only) in the alleyway between us and the building next door.

Can you donate to my fundraiser/charity/good cause?
Maybe! We get requests almost every single day for cash or in-kind contributions to various organizations and causes, so we can only agree to a fraction of them. Requests that arrive in person (and not at peak meal times) are much more likely to meet with a positive response than requests by phone, e-mail, or social media.
