ABOUT US

OUR
STORY

At the Sydney Street Pub and Café, we pride ourselves on keeping it local. We do our best to source our food, drink and of course, our talent, locally. Yet, like all good things, we do import some to keep it interesting. Come enjoy what we have to offer!

Our pub has become known for the quality and selection of items available on our extensive menu. Whether you are looking for seafood, a delicious and unique house burger and fries or our made in-house vegan burger, we have you covered. Our specialties include charbroiled steak, classic fish and chips, seafood chowder and Tee’s famous chicken wings amongst others.

We started this project back in April 2015, after much deliberation. Two and a half years of building and renovating and restoring started. What did we want to achieve? To save a beautiful historic building in Digby and create a place where both locals and visitors can come relax for a while. Good food, good coffee, good beers, some live local music: a place to spend some time with friends.

Saskia, Sydney Street Pub's owner, came to Canada in 2004 from the Netherlands planning to backpack around Canada for a year. Little did she know who she was about to meet when she decided to take a tour with Moose Travel through Ontario and Quebec. Claude, who is originally from Montreal, had just started his job as driver/tour guide for Moose Travel in Toronto and was looking forward to a summer filled with fun and meeting people. Little did he know who he was about to meet. Just 18 months after they met, the tour guide and the backpacker got married. (Yes, she married the tour guide!) In 2007 the move to Digby was made and we have made our home in this great community.
