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.
I had iced tea to drink which is always a great summer quencher to fight the heat.
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.
The above picture does it no justice! Look below at the overwhelmed expression on my Mom’s face!
Don’t worry Mom! Rachy can help out 😉 And I had my share of Strawberry Shortcake! A day of sweet Maritime gluttony.
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!
The above pic portrays the look of a content girl full of yumminess.
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.
Check out the menu; they try to use all local ingredients too which is something I love. Go Nova Scotia!
