Where to Eat on the Cabot Trail

If you are still on the island, there is a great little cafe called The Dancing Goat right on the Cabot Trail at the Margaree Forks. Stop for some great sandwiches, incredible soups and fantastic pastries and desserts. If you are there for breakfast even better. This is likely the only place on the trail you can get an espresso, cappucino or qualtiy cup of coffee. Check it out, you will not be disappointed.

If you are ever in the Winona area, a little town between Stoney Creek and Grimsby, check out Memphis Fire BBQ. This place is what DDD is all about. Slow cooking, fresh, top notch ingredients, with a trained chef who loves food. They smoke their pulled pork, beef brisket, chicken wings and ribs right out back. Ask the owner and he will show you the smoker. Everything is smoked for hours and hours. The place is becoming more and more popular and busy everyday of the week. It has only been open for about 10 months, but it is incredible and keeps getting better. The coleslaw and fires are incredible and Steam Whistle on tap to go with all this southern goodness. They even do Montreal smoked meat in the smoker.

Another suggestion is The Dancing Goat in Margaree, NS on Cape Breton Island. The owner bought a little shack and started making homemade bread and desserts with great cups of coffee. Now those breads have turned into awesome sandwiches with first rate ingredients, daily soups and still all the baked goods. If you want a good cup of coffee anywhere on the island, this is the place. The owner has since built a new building with a few more seats inside. Breakfast is served there as well and is incredible. It's right on the Cabot Trail and shouldn't be skipped.
