This was our first time at The Hungry Heart Cafe, and I must say that we were pleasantly surprised. The menu had something for everyone, and each item had a twist. The prices were appropriate for the portion size, and our waitress was very pleasant. We would definitely go back to try other delicious things on their menu!

Such delicious food. Fresh, local and amazing. Comfy and welcoming service and atmosphere. I highly recommend the monthly evening meal as a new and exciting way to eat super in St. John's! Add to that the social mission of providing folks with training and employment opportunities? You can't go wrong. I recommend everyone stop in and see Chef's Carolyn and... More

My wife and I enjoyed our breakfast there, nicely cooked and presented. Home fries/hash was very different as it included other veggies with the usual potato. The but part was cooked breakfast was not being served until 10am Saturday and 11am on week days. Not too many people want cooked brekky that late in the day.

The food and service was excellent. I was forced to request a clean cup as the one I was presented with was stained from previous use. The table cloth was badly stained and should have been replaced before we were seated.

A winter night and only two other tables booked, by lovely quite people, so it was quite comfortable. The food was excellent, bit slower arriving than I would have liked but my company was excellent.
