I've reviewed this place before and would like to again simply because it's the best for breakfast and A HOT CUP OF TEA which no one else on this island seems to know how to make. I have never tasted coffee in my life but I know a good cup of tea when I get one. One of the very... More

That's what we were told when we asked where to eat. Lots of local people filled the place. The service was warm and efficient. We went there for breakfast a couple of times. The pancakes were delicious and so were the eggs. All the food was good and the prices were reasonable. I can see why everyone eats there. It... More

We wanted to leave early for our trip on the Cabot Trail and we were told to go to the Evangeline. We split a spinach and cheese omelet with homemade toast and it was wonderful. The Evangeline is not a fancy place, but it has good food with a water view!

Don't be put off by the Formica tables or the sign advertising pizza. The cafe is packed with locals and is clearly the place for good food at a good price. I had a hot turkey sandwich which was like old home week. The waitresses were great, calling everyone "darlin'".

Parking is across the street by the water. We had quick and friendly service immediately. Nice place for a hearty breakfast to start the day.

The food is good breakfast fare: eggs bacon and toast. Our server was friendly and apologetic but the delay was unacceptable: we waited for an hour to receive our order after passing it! It's eggs, bacon and potatoes! Solely on the account of the delay wouldn't recommend it.

From the outside it looks very inviting. The staff is very nice, though service slow. The carpet was dirty, the furniture needs an upgrade. The whole place just needs a facelift. The food was only average. I had clams and fries and could not tell which was which.
