Whenever I visit my parents who live in a small cottage town called Port George on the bay of fundy, dependent upon weather I like to take a wee trip to one of my favorite spots in Nova Scotia, Annapolis Royal.
Annapolis Royal is a cute little quaint town packed with a ton of history, tiny Mom & Pop shops, and some great spots to stop and have a snack or a meal.
One spot I cannot stop eating at is Leo’s Cafe. I would love to try one of the many other eateries, but when I find something I like I hate to risk disappointment. I have yet to regret eating at Leo’s.
Last Friday I went with my usual order of the 1/2 sandwich and soup combo. My sandwich was a curried chicken with apricots and pecans, lettuce and shredded carrot; I am seriously drooling just thinking about this delicious concoction. It is a sandwich bursting with flavor, and not too spicy. The soup was a delightful carrot orange ginger mixture which was amazing.
My Mom on the other hand ordered Strawberry Shortcake. It was a half order and it was massive as in as large as a main course plate. It was not all whip cream either, it was HUGE & full of warm sweet crumbly biscuit and bursting with fresh Nova Scotia strawberries.
And this massive 1/2 serving $6.95. Ummmm, yep and served with a smile.
I love Leo’s Cafe! Their peanut butter pie which I believe is flute my free is like an out of body experience. AMAZING!!!! So reasonably priced too.
If you are wondering about my shopping ban – it was Mom’s treat!
If ever you are driving to or through Annapolis Royal, be sure to stop by Leo’s. You can check them out online at http://www.Leoscafe.ca .
Below is a snap shot of their signature sandwiches which includes my fave – the curried chicken sandwich.
