Cocoa Pesto Catering

We go everywhere.


In Unprecedented Times

A Few Words About Our Service

We are facing unprecedented times in our industry. The COVID19 virus has reached us here in Nova Scotia and in response, we have made the difficult decision to voluntarily close our business for the time being. This includes the Woodshire Inn, 494 King restaurant, and Cocoa Pesto Catering.

We are proud to call Nova Scotia our home and wish to do our part to keep all of its residents safe during this difficult time. We look forward to re-opening and getting back to our usual business hours as soon as possible. In the meantime, please stay safe and we look forward to seeing you soon.

Scott Geddes, Owner.
