This place is a must go to, great sandwiches soups, and not to forget the only place with a true cafe latte. what impresses me the most is that I go there many many times each summer and every time its perfect, that is amazing.

Every time I visit the Goat I'm never disappointed. The staff is friendly and the food is superb. From their breakfast to soups and sandwiches everything is so flavourful and delicious. If you have a sweet tooth this is definitely the place you want to visit. The sweets are always fresh and will definitly please your palate. The only downside... More

Fantastic homemade food in the scenic Margaree Valley in Cape Breton Nova Scotia. The outside dining option is wonderful. All the food is made fresh daily. Get there early. They do not stockpile their menu options but you are guarnteed fresh local product.

We were lucky enough to go twice. Once for lunch and once for breakfast. Everything is homemade and delicious! First and foremost a bakery and cafe with pastries, and desserts always with a gluten free option. Second is the homemade sandwiches and soups and quiche for lunches. A must if heading to that area!

I never resist the opportunity to eat at the Dancing Goat...either inside or takeout. The egg sandwiches are irresistible, the roast beef sandwiches are perfect. Anything I've ever ordered has been fantastic. Perhaps the best has been the friendly, welcoming service.

Thank Katharine M
