Happy to be Home!

We are Cory Blundon and Kara Lackie and we're the owners and operators of Selkie's Neighbourhood Diner! We are a Brunch spot in Sydney, a stall at the Cape Breton Farmer's Market, a catering service and a food truck specializing in fresh, local food made with love. 

We are happy to drive to special events and parties all over Cape Breton. Our menu is constantly changing so that we are always cooking with the very best of whats offered by Cape Breton's land & sea.

Cory is originally from Cape Breton, and is a cook who's greatest passion on the planet is breakfast. Kara has been working as a pastry chef for the last 10 years. Together we have lived and worked in Toronto, New Zealand and Fogo Island, Newfoundland. It is so, so great to be settled down for good in our little house in Gabarus with our dog Sweetpea.

We are very excited to share our food with you and look forward to filling up happy bellies all over the Cape Breton. 

Come on out and let us feed you!
