The Periwinkle Café is a daydream come to life for it’s owners. It is a welcoming and light space where the local community and tourists can gather and enjoy everything from their morning cup of coffee and cinnamon roll to an afternoon glass of wine and charcuterie. Taste our fair-trade coffee, roasted here on the East Coast, as well as handmade teas, specialty lemonades, locally brewed beer and wines, and cocktail favorites. Our ever-changing menu of baked goods are made fresh each morning, with an assortment of lunch items and daily specials. Lounge in the gardens and browse the craft shop - stay for a bonfire!

About Cape Breton

Cape Breton Island’s story is told in many ways. It’s etched in her craggy cliffs. Written in the trails that marble her face. Spoken in four languages and celebrated in her music and dance. Alive in the millennia-old history of Unama’ki—Cape Breton Island’s true name, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaw People.

To know our Island is to know she’s an unyielding beauty, one which breeds a fierce spirit, resolute pride, and resilient communities knit together by tradition. Pjila’si, Cíad Míle Fáilte, Bienvenue—welcome to a place loved by many and home to a lucky few.
