Winter Eats

The air may be chilly, but Cape Breton Island’s winter hospitality is warm. Cozy up for an après ski ale alongside the Bras d’Or Lake. Defrost over a steaming bowl of fresh chowder. Tuck into a hearty Dutch Pannekoek (pancake) before embarking on a wintery trek across our many trails. You’ll find places to eat and drink this winter, from funky cafés to our award-winning craft breweries.
