Charlene’s Bayside Café, Whycocomagh, Cape Breton

If home-cooked meals like grandma made, large portions, traditional dishes and homemade desserts aren’t your thing, then don’t stop here, because Charlene’s has all of the above and much, much more. By far the most popular item on the menu is their seafood chowder. It really is like grandma used to make; it has that milky consistency with the buttery film on top, carrots, potatoes and tons of fish, and comes with a homemade biscuit to boot. If chowder doesn’t float your dory, then try the fishcakes or roast beef dinner; both are local favourites. For dessert, there are delicious homemade blueberry or coconut cream pies. Open for breakfast on the weekends and for lunch and dinner during the week. 9657 Highway 105 Whycocomagh, Cape Breton.
