Eat Local

On Cape Breton Island, we proudly celebrate the small scale and sustainable agriculture that gives us a local flavour. Forage for wild mushroom. Collect market fresh produce for dinner. Dine on some of the world’s finest lobster—straight from the wharf. With over 225 farms, you’ll find everything from artisanal cheese to grass fed Highland beef. So, whether you visit a bustling public house or a community lobster boil, you’ll taste our Island in each delicious bite.
