  1. I’m sure that is a deserving establishment worthy of a try. My favourite restaurant in Nova Scotia is the Two Chefs in Bridgewater. The proprietors, Denise and Francis, and staff go out of their way to make you welcome and accommodate any special requests. It’s like visiting friends who absolutely love your company! The food is great, more than reasonably priced, generous portions and wonderful service. Treat yourself to a try if in the area. Every Thursday evening they have an all you can eat East Indian buffet. Knowing my wife and I love lamb, they prepared a special lamb curry just for us and called to make sure we could come. “If you can’t make it this week, let us know and we’ll serve it when you can” was the telephone message they left. How’s that for hospitality.
