Eating in Bear River

We like to head over to Bear River a couple of times each year. It's a lovely little village situated literally on Bear River, a river that gets fed by the Fundy Tides. The river cuts through hills on both sides, and houses are perched precariously (it seems) with long drops outside their back doors.We like to eat at the Changing Tides diner. Last time we were there, the tide was out. You can see the stilts that the buildings rest on....the Fundy Tides are the highest tides in the world.
The owner of the restaurant is a very nice woman. The first time we were there (3 summers ago) peanut butter pie was on the daily special list. Unfortunately, they sold the last piece to someone at the table next to us. When we went last year, peanut butter pie wasn't available. So the owner told us to call a day or two ahead next time we planned to come by and she would make a pie for us.
So we called, and she did. (this is one of the reasons why I love Nova Scotia so much!) She told us that one of her other customers was quite upset that she made a pie just for us....until she explained to him that he could have some of the pie too...we only wanted 2 pieces. She had lots of happy customers that day!

Oh Sarah
That sounds sinfully delicious!
I may have to give up my yearly Key Lime pie in Lunenburg, for a trip to Bear River

That is so cool! I've gotta try that place sometime.

I love Bear River. We haven't been over since arriving back in NS, but when we go, we'll definitely try the diner. Peanut butter pie is too sweet for me - looking forward to seeing what else she has on her dessert menu. Do you know if she's open year 'round, Sara?

Sara said...

Yes, she is open year round but I think with shorter hours.

I really really really need to visit your neck of the woods some day. Really.
