Owner / Head Chef
Chef Sebastien Milot fell in love with the culinary field while baking bread with his mother and barbequing with his father.
He attended Whilbrod Bherer in Quebec city where he completed his culinary management course with honours.
Post graduation, Chef Milot traveled to Lyons, France to complete an internship at Hotel Le Congres where he was able to implement and practice his culinary skills.
Chef Milot has worked at various establishments, from his hometown near Campbellton, NB, to Toronto, where he lived and worked for 13 years. This gave him a vast range of experience in various types of cuisine.
With a variety of experiences under his professional belt, Chef Milot felt ready to pursue new experiences and made the decision to move back to the east coast.
Owner / Manager
Yarmouth has always been home to Hannah Rhyno-Milot. She grew up watching her parents' entrepreneurial spirit. It was in her family's coffee shop " Joshuas Fine Coffee & Ice Cream" that Hannah first experienced the hospitality industry, catering to tourists and locals.
She went on to attend a two-year program in Hotel Restaurant Management. Post-graduation Hannah worked as a server at Dooly's, and after two years was promoted to manager.
Hannah moved on to become office manager at R.C. Communications and enjoyed her time there for 15 years.
Her love of the hospitality industry never died and she is now happy to work with her husband Sebastien, offering wonderful food and service to their guests. She loves sourcing out new recipes and menu ideas and working with Sebastien to fine-tune the flavour and presentation of their offerings.
