Mug Up Tea Room

On May 27th, 2006, the Cape Forchu Lightstation opened its doors for the season with a new addition – the Mug Up Tea Room. This cafe and restaurant features a cozy, 20-seat dining area in the lightkeeper's original living room, overlooking Yarmouth Harbour and the Atlantic Ocean. It has welcomed many tourists and locals who come to enjoy home-made delights and comfort food, prepared from scratch. Local favourites include our homemade bread pudding topped with warm caramel sauce and our pumpkin-chocolate chip muffins. For a hearty lunch, try our cold lobster sandwich, served with potato chips.

You can also enjoy a picnic outside. Many visitors prefer to have us pack their lunch so that they can relax and listen to the surf at one of our many picnic tables overlooking the sea.
