The Nonesuch Café is a small coffeehouse and eatery located in the picturesque seaside town of Parrsboro, Nova Scotia, Canada. The café is on the ground floor of Main & Station along with myriad used books, kickshaws, and art. The upper levels of the building offer accommodation space for Nonesuch artist’s in residence as well as workshop, exhibition, and performance space.

We specialize in mushrooms, sea vegetables, and an international vegetarian cuisine.

The café is mostly OPEN BY CHANCE : if you see the sign outside, the door open, or the lights on, please don’t be shy to come right in to see what we have on offer in the café & to check out the new stock of secondhand books and art.

The cafe menu changes regularly depending on our mood and what is in season.

                          Gluten and Lactose & Sugar Free Friendly.


During late summer and autumn months, the café offers up fresh chanterelles on toast, wild mushroom gnocchi, delectable mushroom soup, wild-picked oyster mushroom omelettes, and other foraged treats.

Our regular offerings also include daily soups, omelettes, salads, sandwiches, quiche, open toasts, crumpets, tacos, Veggie Burgers, casseroles, curries, fresh juices, baked goods and desserts.

Please note that we do cook with eggs and dairy (we are not vegan) but will do our best to accommodate your dietary restrictions. Please let us know if you have food allergies or other food no-nos.
