Inspired by the seasons, The Bite House is a 12-seat restaurant located in a century-old farmhouse on Cape Breton Island. Our food is prepared with the best ingredients the area has to offer – either sourced from small independent farmers, foraged, or grown in our gardens. We also carry a small selection of wine, beer, cider and juices we think you’ll enjoy.
We serve a 9-course set menu of smaller bites and larger dishes that changes monthly.
Bryan Picard grew up in a French-speaking village in rural New Brunswick. Greens and roots were grown in the backyard. Fish and game were brought home by his father. After a number of years cooking and travelling in Montreal, Denmark, Sweden and Australia, he’s back in the Maritimes, and even more appreciative of what the countryside has to offer — amazing food, lush environs, and a sense of community.
