Oyster Bay Café

Closed for the Season

Returning May 2022

We’ll be back in Summer 2022

The Oyster Bay Café, located in the Welcome Centre, opened in the spring of 2014 and serves freshly made culinary delights for breakfast and lunch. In 2015, the talented chefs from In The BeanTime Café began to run the show and created a menu with a distinctive emphasis on local, seasonal seafood.

Breakfast items include the Breakfast Bagel, Garden Breakfast Wrap, traditional Eggs Benny or nautical Neptune Eggs Benny! And of course you can have a latte with that. For lunch, there are favourites such as wraps, grilled cheese, BLT or seafood clubhouse sandwiches; the always-popular Oyster Bay Seafood Chowder and delicious salads like Roasted Chicken Caesar or a Seared Ahi Tuna Nicoise!

We’re open later on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Try our Happy Appy Hour from 3:00-5:00 pm with deals on drinks and appies, or our after 5:00 pm dinner menu, featuring Burgers, Beer Battered Oysters, Coconut Shrimp Tacos, Vegan Power Bowl, and much much more. We are fully licensed and offer breathtaking views of the harbour and boats at the marina. What could be better than enjoying a gentle breeze while sitting dockside and enjoying a delightful meal with a cold beer or delightful glass of wine? Come on down and say hi! Reservations are recommended.
