Seafood, especially lobster, is the thing to eat on Cape Breton. The Aspy Bay oysters are also good. To save money by getting groceries, do so at larger centres such as Chéticamp and Baddeck. Small convenience stores tend to be more sparsely stocked than convenience stores you would find in cities.
