Lobster suppers originally hoped to start in May at the Yarmouth Light won’t be served until June 25 says operations manager Denise Nickerson.
“It just hasn’t been busy enough,” she said.
Damp, cold weather reduced the number of visitors to the site in May however things are looking up for June.
The first Acadian style breakfast for the season will be held Sunday, June 19, for Father’s Day.
“For those who haven’t had it yet, we serve sautéed lobster with scrambled eggs on an English muffin with a side of hash browns, a fruit garnish and coffee/tea for $8.95 a person,” said Nickerson.
“I’m keeping my fingers crossed for beautiful weather. Just imagine, eating breakfast on the patio overlooking the Yarmouth Harbour and Atlantic Ocean.”
Breakfast will be served between 8:30 and 11 a.m. Fathers will receive free bread pudding the entire day.
A new community garden has been started on the property with many donated flowers.
“It’s going to be such a beautiful place for wedding, graduation or any picture for that matter. Anyone who would like to volunteer, even if it’s only one day, or even one hour, we would love to have you come out,” said Nickerson.
In the next couple of weeks, the traditional ice plant gardens will be planted.
The whole, steamed lobster suppers will be served each Saturday during the summer until 9 p.m. along with the regular menu.
This is the last month to purchase tickets for the private sunset lobster dinner for 10 valued at $450. The draw date is July 1.
