Quick service and decent food. My son enjoyed his lobster potato pancakes which came with a salad. My daughter's kids fish and chips was a big portion. Fries are just okay but the fish was quite good. Reasonable prices and quick and friendly service!

Nothing fancy, just tasty. We had breakfast here 2 days and had Dianne as our server both days. She was most pleasant and the latte was YUM!

Beware the coach parties! To be fair the staff handle them well, so you shouldn't have to wait long for a table. The gift shop does contain some dreadful stuff, but there are things that aren't too crass. Good toilets. Try using the visitor centre...More

The Sou'wester is a typical tourist gift shop and restaurant. Coach parties fill the place most of the time. We had dinner there during our nights stay in Peggy's Cove. During the evening it is still busy but not slammed and there was no issues...More

The only restaurant in Peggy's Cove. Although our server was very nice, our baked potatoes were cold. The haddock was ok. The mussels were smaller than others we have had on our trip.
