Restaurant Review: Sandpiper Restaurant, Port Philip, Nova Scotia.

We are in Port Philip, Nova Scotia,  Canada, and are returning to a restaurant that we saw earlier in the afternoon before we got distracted by the beach.

Last time we saw this place we looked in amazement because there was a long queue of people  lined up out the door, the car park was full to bursting and clearly this place was hot to trot  on the scale of popular local dining.

Now, almost two hours later, we pull in to the carpark to try our luck. Luckily the rush is mostly over and they have a table for us no problem. The kids have worked up an appetite and we sit down in anticipation. This establishment is well known  in the area.

We amuse ourselves with some very novel place-mats that depict clippings of old newspaper stories whilst we wait for our orders to arrive.

Our food arrives… once again we have found an excellent family business, the menu is not terribly extensive, but it doesn’t need to be, what these folks  cook, they cook well.

Everyone enjoys their main meal and then we approach the subject of dessert.

We ask and apparently the Pie is highly recommended. We ask what flavours and I knew my choice as soon as the words  “Lemon Merange”  were uttered… I think that coconut creme was also mentioned, but I was in such a delirium about the possibilities of Lemon Merange  that I might not have remembered that correctly…

The lemon Merangue was simply delectable…

We have had a wonderful meal… replete, happy and tired we end an amazing day.
