Dining in Nova Scotia

We are flying to Nova Scotia for 2 weeks in June, staying in Halifax, Annapolis Royal, Lunnenberg and CapeBreton. Looking for dining suggestions in or near these places as we'll be travelling by car. Also need a restaurant for a nice dinner in Halifax to take our Goddaughter. We like places that serve good local ingredients and love to eat mostly everything.
This post has some good suggestions for Halifax: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/871306
We really enjoy Le Caveau, which is near Wolfville in the Annapolis Valley. It isn't exactly where you've specified, but may be en route. http://grandprewines.ns.ca/restaurant/
I have heard good things (but haven't actually eaten) at a couple of places in Lunenburg:
Trattoria Della Nonna. http://www.trattoriadellanonna.ca/
Fleur de Sel: http://fleurdesel.net/
Fleur de Sel's more casual sibling, The Salt Shaker Deli, is fantastic.
I've also enjoyed meals at Magnolia's, also in Lunenburg.
I ate at Leo's Cafe, in Annapolis Royal, a long time ago, but remember it as quite pleasant (very casual soup and sandwich place, with healthy and satisfying offerings)

Well, I guess you'll have to scratch Trattoria Nonna from the list. Report in Halifax paper says that their chef and front of house person are leaving and that the owners will not reopen. I think there's more to the story, but. . . Sad.
