On the road from Halifax to Antigonish...

Recommended Posts

Making an overnight drive from the Halifax airport to Antigonish on a Friday afternoon, returning the next day. Any recommendations for an interesting food stop or two?

The Esquire Restaurant on Bedford Highway is a genuinely first-class diner: very good well-prepared fresh food, with pleasant surroundings and an excellent staff. I'm a breakfast specialist, and they have one of the best classic breakfasts I've ever had. Get the sausage, eggs, potatoes version.

If you are looking for good home cooked food and not ambience or "experience dining, try the Eastside Diner in New Glasgow. It is in a little strip mall right across from the hospital. I never remember the exit number but I just look for the green H for the hospital and follow that. They have fishcake and salad, homemade hamburgers, hot sandwiches, fish and chips, cold plates and standard lunch fare. Last time we were there Hubby had a sparerib burger, bbq sparerib meat pulled off the bone and piled on a bun with fried onions. He said it was a new must have.

They also have home made desserts including butterscotch pie and chocolate cake with boiled icing :wub: .

we haven't had a bad meal yet. :biggrin:

Thanks for the suggestions. Unfortunately, the timing didn't work out for either of these, but I've noted them for next time!
