Local Eats & Drinks

Although you can get all the food you need at the grocery store nearby to cook a tasty meal in your suite there are also some very tasty options around the island.  

Coffee

Java Bay Café has tasty lattes and baked goods. It’s only a short walk away beside Tru-Value grocery store and we suggest trying Heidi’s scones.
If you like to brew your own coffee, at the grocery store pick-up a bag of local roasters Aroma Specialty Coffee. Helene’s rostery is focused on Fairtrade beans from a cooperation that supports only female growers.
Aroma Café is the creation of Marie and Dave, located on the west side of the island beside the gas station.  This is the coffee hub of the island community and serves tasty baked goods and breakfast. https://www.cafearomaquadra.ca
