Ladies Night Out in Baddeck, Cape Breton

Yellow Cello Cafe in Baddeck.
Ladies night out on Sunday night with friends Wendy, Catherine, and Linda over in Baddeck was a lot of fun.   On the way over we stopped at a little deli and bakery, the Herring Choker.  It's right on the Trans-Canada at a little place called Nyanza.  They are known for their good bread, soups, sandwiches and the wide variety of spices they offer.  (Note to myself:  add to my "bucket list" stopping for lunch at the Herring Choker next summer.)

Baddeck is one of my favorite places in Cape Breton, and on Sunday it wasn't that crowded.  In the summer it is a popular place for tourists and quite often rather crowded.

Our destination was a little restaurant called the Yellow Cello, a clever name, no?  I had been there before for brunch or maybe an early lunch but never for dinner.  Like the town it was not crowded, and we were served very quickly.

We each had a rather light meal in order to save room for dessert.

                                                                I had the vegetarian chili.  Yummy.
                                                        Catherine's choice the chicken salad.
                                                    Wendy and I each had the blueberry crisp for dessert.

I enjoyed the dinner, but most of all I was glad to have a visit with these three before Dan and I head back to North Carolina later this week.


  1. When you go by Whycocomagh, try out The Farmer's Daughter, right on the trans Canada. They have crafts, baked goods, and fudge. Ahhh the fudge!
