World Cuisine

Roland and Kathleen Glauser have been providing delicious world cuisine blended with down-home hospitality to locals and tourists for 18 years. We think that makes Charlotte Lane the perfect stop for a bite to eat! 


Award-Winning Alcohol

The pear eau de vie from Ironworks Distillery is a must-see.  As well as sampling all of their hand-crafted liqueurs and award-winning rum.  Stop by their site to see what they’re up too!

    Proprietor’s Cara Weston Edell and Frederick Edell have brought their background’s in the arts and higher education to enhance the charming ambiance of the Biscuit Eater with an interesting bookstore and cultural events calendar. Great coffee and menu, with some ingredients coming from their own garden located on the premises. A lovely patio option during warm weather. In my experience, the Biscuit Eater cafe is the most appealing element of Mahone Bay.
