The Port Hole Cafe & Gift Shop was opened in May of 1997 to complement the main museum area. Since its opening, it has become a favorite stopping place for both tourists and locals. The view from the Cafe changes as the tidal river flows in and out. This cozy maritime Cafe is a great place to have a refreshing drink or a light lunch made from the finest baking the Parrsboro Shore has to offer. A range of local and Maritime gifts including our own Tartan products are available to purchase in our gift shop.
