Housed in The Woodshire Inn, a bright yellow establishment built in the middle of the 19th century, Cocoa Pesto Bistro showcases fresh, flavourful fare prepared using local ingredients and a variety of cooking methods. Chef Scott Geddes scoured the southern region of the United States in an effort to discover definitively whether it's the heat or the humidity, as well as to find the best techniques for creating authentic Southern-style barbecue. Taste the results of his research in Cocoa Pesto Bistro's crowd-pleasing pulled-pork sandwich ($10.95), or in the dry-rub-marinated pork ribs, smoked with Annapolis Valley applewood and slathered with the kitchen's signature barbecue sauce ($18.95). The dinner menu abounds with non-barbecue-related items as well, including pecan-crusted salmon with mango cream ($21.95) and an oven-roasted half chicken with apple-pie sauce ($19.95).
On weekends, brunchgoers can sample offerings spanning the sweet-savoury spectrum, such as raspberry french toast ($6.95), a pulled-pork omelette ($9.95), and the hearty Big Bistro Breakfast, which includes fish cakes, molasses baked beans, scrambled eggs, three strips of bacon, a biscuit, and a country farmhouse ($10.95).
