As you and your family explore beautiful Cape Breton Island and her famous Cabot Trail, you will find there's no shortage of fine food in the Margaree River Valley. Our coastal restaurants are a fifteen-minute ocean-side drive from Cheticamp, and there's family eating and seafood in Margaree only twenty minutes from Baddeck. Whether you are on your way to explore the Cape Breton Highlands National Park or you've been hiking our trails, walking our glorious beaches, fishing our Heritage River, exploring our renowned shops and museums or heading out for an evening Ceilidh or dance, there's a variety of food and restaurants, from casual fare to fine dining, to complement the great times you'll find here.
