The Cat and the Fiddle Café
The palate pleasers at The Cat and the Fiddle Café lather tzatziki sauce onto paninis, bake homemade falafels, and employ the bright flavours of tahini, lemon, and feta for a health-oriented menu of Middle Eastern and Lebanese-inspired fare. Seasoned beef stuffs grape leaves, and fluffy couscous and kalamata olives steal the limelight in salads. Tongues that haven’t gotten their passport photos taken can tango with house-roasted chicken or scrambled eggs in whole-wheat wraps that awaken mouths in the morning and silence tummy quakes the afternoon. Patrons taking a coffee break can sip organic fair-trade brews, roasted at home in Nova Scotia, or steep a fair-trade tea bag. Meanwhile, wee ones perfect the art of roasting coffee beans in smokestacks at the toy train table in the 200-square-foot play area.
