The bustling roadside café, Dancing Goat Café and Bakery, is a favourite stop along the Cabot Trail for locals and visitors alike. With delicious sweet treats, fresh breads, artisanal sandwiches and soups, and lattes that would rival any top coffee house, the Dancing Goat is a culinary gem tucked in the hills of the Margaree Valley. After lunch be sure to buy a package of Goat Cakes (oatcakes) and a Margaree Valley Fog for the road!

Open Year-Round 8am – 5pm
