Charming Accommodations, Locally Sourced Honest Food and Culinary Education

"You don't have to travel to Tuscany for an amazing culinary experience, it's all available at The Flying Apron." ~ Nicole Robinson, host of Nova Scotia's BEST Stay, eat, cook, learn, appreciate and relax. Do it all here.

Honest, Local and Sesaonal Fare is what you’ll find on our ever-changing menus. Whether you are stopping in for a cup of locally roasted Organic Fair Trade Coffee and a house baked pastry, grabbing lunch from our cafe menu or relaxing with friends at one of our weekend brunches, there are a variety of ways to enjoy local food at The Flying Apron! An atomosphere most often described as “happy” and “warm” our dining room and cafe spaces are the perfect place to celebrate local food. And our seasonal Patio provides a picturesque setting overlooking The Flying Apron Gardens in which to enjoy a meal.

Flying Apron Inn

Relax into freshly pressed sheets and drift off to a frog pond serenade. Our well-appointed guest rooms provide the perfect retreat for an evening or an entire vacation.

Learning never tasted so good! Sit back and watch our Chef at work in a Demonstration Class OR roll up your sleeves and cook along in a Hands On Class. We offer a variety of Public Classes and Culinary Getaway Packages or grab your friends and enjoy one of our Private Group Classes and Getaways. Specialty Classes and local producer tour culinary packages allow you a first-hand glimpse of where our food comes from. And in all these classes you will leave your culinary experience with a full belly, new recipes to try at home and maybe even a few new friends!
