The Jib, a vibrant and cozy-chic eatery and social house on Queen Street, is a gourmet grab-and-go and dine-in cafe, now open year-round serving locals, and attracting visitors from afar to the charming sea-side village of Chester, Nova Scotia. Drawing inspiration from the unique character of the community, and a beautiful family history, the creators of The Jib aspire to do more than serve great food.

From its inception, the restaurant has been designed to nourish this growing community, satisfying both body, mind and spirit from sun up to lights out, with delicious and nutritious food, stunning earth-friendly products and a warm, inviting space to connect with friends, business associates and family.
