We have spent the morning walking around Hopewell Rocks, and enjoying a glorious day outside. Now it’s lunchtime and we are heading south via the Fundy Coastal Drive.
After a while it’s inevitable that the fresh air and exercise has an effect, and conversation in the van turns to lunch. We keep a look-out for a diner or family establishment that have been our favourites so far.
This is how we came to stop at The Broadleaf Guest Ranch and Restaurant.
One thing is clear when we arrive: this Farm /Ranch has been very busy to make the most of what it has.. space and beautiful location, it has diversified to be a number of different things in the one place and also appears to serve the local community well, since the far end of the restaurant appeared to be getting ready to cater for a wedding when we were there.
There is guest accommodation available and restaurant, but inside the restaurant there is also a gift/souvineer area, outside there are canoes, a covered wagon, picnic area and horse riding, so it’s clear that there is a lot going on here at the Ranch.
It looks like a great place for an outdoor holiday.
Inside the Restaurant there are big couches by a fireplace that would be especially welcoming in the winter months, a play area with rocking horses and stuffed toys, so the kids can be kept amused until the food arrives.
Once again we are treated to some good home style cooking, and while it is not haute cuisine, it is honest food at a reasonable price. Good Family fare, crowd pleasing food. The kids tuck in and enjoy their meals.
Although this is not the kind of food we would like to have every day, we enjoy ours too.
The sun is shining and while the kids are letting off a little steam running around outside, I take a little walk around to take some photos.
