Our service and kitchen staff take pride in providing an exceptional culinary experience to our guests. Working directly from the restaurant garden, we pick vegetables, fruit, and herbs as they reach their peak for the best flavour and quality. With a combination of skills and passion for growing food, hospitality service, and cooking experience, our team is creating classic dishes with local influence and modern techniques.
You can expect to enjoy a memorable meal from the a la carte menu, or get a full tasting experience from the chefs menu. Paired with our list of local craft beer, wine and spirits. We look forward to serving you dinner at Lupin Dining & Pantry.
We offer our five course Chef's Tasting menu along with a select a la carte menu at every service, along with our full pantry.
Lupin Dining & Pantry is a small farm-to-table restaurant situated on Nova Scotia’s Eastern Shore, just a short drive from Metro Halifax. With her team, Chef Kim MacPherson provides an elevated dining experience, inspired by the garden and flavours of the Maritimes in a beautiful tranquil country setting.
Inspired by what is available locally, our menus change often to showcase the best Nova Scotia has to offer. We enjoy getting to know our local farmers, fishermen, and butchers in the province. Knowing how they grow, harvest and process their products helps us bring the best flavours forward.

Chef Kim MacPherson and her husband Mark Pehlke are proud to welcome you to Lupin Dining & Pantry, located on their picturesque property in Musquodoboit Harbour, Nova Scotia.
Lupin is the culmination of a dream that started back on the West Coast where Mark and Kim first met, gaining eclectic cooking and farming experience across the country, before settling on their 40 acre homestead on the Eastern Shore in 2015.
Kim M. - HEAD CHEF & OWNER
Inspired by her experience on Michael Stadtlander’s Eigensinn Farm at the Canadian Chefs Congress, Kim has been honing her skills and developing the knowledge to create her own farm-to-table restaurant.
Kim grew up on a farm in Ontario and entered into the culinary field surrounded by talented chefs whose focus was to use local and seasonal ingredients. Her passion for the farm-to-table concept only grew over the years as she worked in recognized restaurants across the country and as a personal chef.
Kim is excited to bring her love for French and Italian cooking, with a mix of Maritime influence to the Eastern Shore. With our gardens directly behind the kitchen, you just might find Kim gathering ingredients for your dish.
Mark P. - OWNER & OPERATIONS MANAGER
As a journeyman electrician Mark naturally became the go to guy for everything on the property. He spends his time after work tending to the garden and animals, but he really enjoys time on the water surfing when the waves roll in. With a love for entertaining and creating the perfect atmosphere, Mark skillfully created a comfortable and energizing space for our guests.
