For a tasty meal in attractive surroundings and enjoy local produce – head to the Prissy Pig Café and Deli on St. Andrew’s Street at the corner of Main Street, Antigonish.
According to the General Manager, “The restaurant has evolved over the past eight months in response to the market. The Prissy Pig was started and is owned by a number of local farmers in the area who are shareholders. We attempt to use local products in a 100 mile radius from Antigonish. We believe in sustainable development and the importance of using and supporting local producers. “
“Breakfast is a popular meal here for a healthy start to the day and a great value.
Lunch and brunch is also busy with different menu items featured daily depending on the chef and local produce. We always have vegetarian selections and if you don’t see a vegan option ask the chef to produce something fresh.” On Sunday we often have live music from a local musician.
I really enjoyed the “Pulled Pork” sandwich – a very generous serving with delicious and tender meat. The
apple cider glazed meatballs were a delicious evening selection. The paté from the deli was a great treat. The chef, Mary Gillis leads the staff in preparation of new recipes for sandwiches, wraps, soups, pasta bar, hickory ribs and luscious desserts. The home-cooked meals are tasty and there is an attractive selection from the salad and pasta bar.
The décor is bright and cheery with windows on three sides and bright designs on the walls which feature an art gallery with rotating exhibitions planned.
The plush leather chairs and coffee tables in the corners give a relaxed and welcoming place to sit with your friends for a cup of coffee or a snack. Several of the diners remarked that they come in often and enjoy meeting friends in the friendly atmosphere.
The management is concerned with being environmentally conscious and in fair trade. The Prissy Pig Café & Deli serves “Just Us” Coffee and organic teas. Management is constantly looking for ways to lessen environmental impact, from being energy efficient, to using packaging and containers that have a lesser impact on the environment.
Future plans include landscaping, improvements to the façade, opening for dinner (evenings) and a license for beer and wine.
Local suppliers of baked goods, deserts, farm produce and other local products are encouraged to contact management for possible collaboration. Local musicians and artists are also welcome.
