Meat Cove Campground is a rugged camping experience with tenting sites and cabins overlooking the Atlantic Ocean in Northern Cape Breton. Check out the many hiking trails nearby, swim at our popular beach, strike up an evening bonfire, or go kayaking and
We arrived at Meat Cove late in the afternoon and were initially told that there were no more campsites left, but they managed to squeeze us and our little tent in at "the last" spot left - a great little spot, actually, on the cliff near the bushes, with a great view of the ocean. We ate dinner at the restaurant (fish cakes with beans and slaw/fish sandwich with fries) and enjoyed it very much. The serving staff were very helpful and friendly. The bathrooms had recently been renovated and they were very clean, plenty of hot water, and still smelling like the wood that they were built from. This really is a slice of paradise. Best views off the Cabot Trail. Very relaxing, so much so that we blew off our second travel day and just hung out, spending a second night there. The restaurant was closed the second day, but there is a small supermarket about 8 km away. There are no hookups for RVs, so come self-sufficient. The hiking trail was neat and provided a great view of the coastline and the campground itself. Definitely worth a visit or an overnight.Thank you for leaving a review for Meat Cove Campground. Stop by for a yummy bowl of chowder or fish cakes and beans at any time! We are so glad you liked your visit!

Tasty food, but make sure you have cash. The first night we didn't have enough and it was late, but they had no problem letting us take the food. We paid the next day, and ate there each day of our trip.

The Bay CafÃ© definitely gives you a true sense of community. For us, part of the charm was the fact that the cafÃ© was actually right in the Bay St. Lawrence Community Centre! The village of Bay St. Lawrence is situated "off road" from what I would say is the "top" of the Cabot Trail. It is peaceful, picturesque and definitely worth the drive off the trail. As other reviewers have mentioned, the dÃ©cor is simple or sparse but with the windows looking out to the town, you don't really need a lot of clutter in the dÃ©cor. I would also guess that because it is within the community centre the cafÃ© probably serves other purposes throughout the year. Does dÃ©cor really matter? The fact that the place was busy, busy, busy with both locals and a handful of tourists is proof that dÃ©cor does not really matter! Keep in mind where you are...some of you may need to dial down your expectations...you're not in a busy, slick city with multiple venues competing on the same block...you are in a lovely, remote, quiet village so enjoy the experience! The cafÃ© was clean and bright, the staff was friendly and attentive and the food was clearly homemade with local ingredients and sense of pride. There were three of us and we all enjoyed our hearty seafood chowder with a delicious warm and buttery biscuit. Had they been open for dinner we would have gone again but they are only open for breakfast and lunch. It was explained to us that they did that to be fair to the other "restaurant" - The Hut, that opens only for dinner (take out only). I thought that was thoughtful, kind and fair in such a small village.In terms of the prices, we found them to be in line with other places in Cape Breton and along the trail...you can look on their website to see their menu and prices if you are going that way. And yes it's true, they only take cash but we found that also to be very common in many places in Cape Breton so just be prepared before you hit the trail! ;)We would love to return to Bay St. Lawrence for a longer stay and would without hesitation return to The Bay CafÃ© for a meal or two! If you're in the area...go and enjoy!We are very pleased you enjoyed your chowder and buttery biscuit while stopping in to our cafÃ©! We are small and hope to fulfill the expectations of travellers with home made meals and freshly made desserts. Thanks again!
