Crazy good food at an even crazier price! $14 for a three egg eggs benedict with bacon, potatoes, and spinach? I don't think it's possible to find that quality for that price elsewhere, friendly staff and nice clean location. Definitely leans towards a trendier crowd but there were still some older folks dining there. If you're coming off the ferry looking for breakfast, or are just stopping by the area, this is your place to go for a great meal.

Owned and operated by the Mermaid folks, who happen to be neighbors with my grandmother - but that doesn't impact the review! They make a great Eggs Benedict and they even cater to keto and celiac. They made mine with no bun on extra bacon, and my wife's on a gluten free English muffin. Their hours are a bit odd as they close early and Tuesday is donut day. A nice addition this year is air conditioning. The food truck is amazing grub and so is the sit down meals. Love the big chunks of salt on the potatoes! They are nice people aside from the great food. They let us use their wifi and outdoor water tanks when we are at our bungalow in Gabarus.

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!
