On the South side of the Cabot Trail

The Dancing Moose Café is a full-service restaurant serving breakfast and lunch year round (special winter days and hours) The Dancing Moose Cafe specializes in Dutch Pannekoeken, a Crepe like dish, sweet or savory or both!

Of course we also serve the traditional BET (Bacon Eggs & Toast), sandwiches, soups, Belgian waffles and from the start of the lobster season to October we serve Lobster Chowder ans Snow Crab rolls. The Cafe is also a great place to find baked goods for eating in… or on the road.

We bake everything ourselves, from scratch, including our sandwich bread!

Inside our café, explore our collection of gifts, souvenirs, and excellent books.

We also offer year-round accommodation in our 2-bedroom housekeeping cottage, and in our funky, fully insulated and heated camping cabins.

Visit us on the Cabot Trail in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. We’d love to chat, and find out where you’re from, so don’t be shy. Stop in and check out our food, coffee, souvenirs, and books. And, well, our moose!

Outside, visit our little family of chickens, and say hello to the cats. We’ll see you soon…
