Natasha MacLellan – At Home Here in Nova Scotia

Occupation: Theatre Artist and Artistic Producer of Ship's Company Theatre

Place of Birth : I was born at the Grace Maternity, but prefer to identify as a Caper - from South West Margaree.

Currently Resides:  Parrsboro, NS

Where’s your favourite place in  Nova Scotia to grab a coffee?
Although I am partial to tea, in the spirit of the question, I love grabbing coffee at two special places: Often when I am driving to/from Cape Breton, I will get off the highway just to stop at The Tall and Small in Antigonish. I also love getting coffee at The Dancing Goat in Margaree, because it delights me that you can now get an espresso based drink in Margaree! And, the coffee is from Java Blend, which in my humble opinion, is the best coffee in NS.
Where’s your favourite place in  Nova Scotia to grab a pint?   
When it's a pint I am craving, I always find myself wanting to be in Chester, at the Focsle Tavern. When I can't be there, Tom's Little Havana in Halifax is my favourite place to go for everything. But, if I wanna party hard, I want Horse Power at The Seahorse and some loud local music.

Where’s your favourite place to shop in Nova Scotia?  

Frenchy's in Amherst, Bridgewater or Coldbrook.

Where in Nova Scotia would we stand to see your favourite view? 
When you are passing through Scotsville and just about to enter Upper Margaree, when you come to the top of that hill, and you turn the corner to start going down, you can see my Margaree spread out before you... That view takes the cake, every time.

Name 3 things we’ve gotta do when we visit  Nova Scotia:

1. Eat at The Wild Caraway in Advocate Harbour.

2. Drive the Cabot Trail.

3. See a play written, performed and imagined by Nova Scotians.

What makes Nova Scotia such a special place on earth for you?

The beauty.
