“Sit in reverie and watch the changing colour of the waves that break upon the idle seashore of the mind.” — Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
And what better place to do so than at The Pier Bistro!
Located at the very end of Beacon Avenue, Sidney’s main street, right out on the end of the pier is where you’ll find the aptly named Pier Bistro.
There’s indoor seating for blustery days, but we were here on a gloriously sunny day and chose a waterside table. We watched the waves lapping in the sun, boats out on the water, seagulls lazily soaring by and even a proud mother duck and her six ducklings paddling by just beyond our table.
The Pier’s crab cakes were made to just the right done-ness, with just a bit of a spicy bite to them, but not so much that you become suspicious of what’s being hidden. Good flavor!
The Spicy Thai Salad was refreshing with interesting greens and lots of cashews.
The piece de resistance was The Pier Bistro’s eggs benny, which is a Crab Benny, served on a crab cake instead of a biscuit. Unique and delicious!
Come here when your company arrives from landlocked locations – they’ll be impressed!
