A decent restaurant with nice decor. The meal was simple and satisfactory, nothing special and the service was friendly and prompt. We may return.

Totally enjoyed our evening at the Brownstone. The service was amazing and the food was perfect. We were a party of 10 people celebrating my birthday and we were all impressed with the food and I even got a free dessert for my birthday. Will certainly go again.

Wow!! What a great time we had. My wife and I had dinner at the Brownstone the other night. It was sooo good! I had the chicken saganaki and was too full for dessert, my wife had the pulled pork (best ever). Our waitress was amazing. The place was packed with a line up out the door and she was... More

I have been to The Brownstone with my children and with my coworkers many times. Whatever the occasion I am never disappointed. Somehow the atmosphere can suit any occasion. The staff works to make the customer feel welcome. With kids this is great because when I go out I want to be served in a nice setting. Many restaurants with... More

Had lunch twice at this cafe, once driving to Antigonish from CB specifically to have lunch here. Nice, cozy atmosphere, friendly attentive service and comfort food. It is cozy with no trace of pretentiousness. Great music selection as well as we dined. Will return.

We had such a great lunch here - friendly service, delicious (and interesting!) food and great ambiance. I loved my first Peanut Butter and Jam Hamburger - with delicious cheese and carmelized onions, a great new combination; who'da thought! This will definitely be one of our stops when we're in Antigonish; we highly recommend it.
