The Savvy Sailor is the ideal spot for breakfast, lunch or even just a coffee and cake. The location is perfect with a wonderful view from the deck overlooking the Lunenburg harbour. The food is great and the service is excellent.

Had a great Savvy Brekkie and Veggie Brekkie, the locally smoked bacon was excellent, guess which brekkie... The veggie was very refreshing. Local jam was a nice compliment.

We lucked out and got a table right near the window where the view was absolutely beautiful. I ordered the fish burger which was very good! My boyfriend ordered the cod cakes and Cesar salad. Both were very good as well. The overall experience was good. Nothing exceptional, but a very good meal nonetheless.

We visited The Savvy Sailor with our family. The service was great; attentive without being intrusive. Coffee was refilled quite often. The latte was very good and our meals arrived quickly. Yum. The view was pretty nice also.
