“Nice little café; good coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

It can be hard to find good coffee in many NL restaurants, so a nice café is a good find. It shouldn't really be in the restaurant category, because it is *tiny*, with only room for a couple of bistro tables inside, and because it isn't really a full service "restaurant".

The coffee was great, as were the homemade cookies, and the cold drinks after a short hike on a hot day. Friendly service, and very popular with locals as well as tourists.

Parking can be problematic, as I'd say it's for 6 cars max. and the roadside is not good for pulling over since the café is just under the brow of the hill.

“GREAT SOUP”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

We made a brief stop at the Crow's Nest Cafe and both of us had different bowls of soup. My partner had a latte that he said was really good and I had an excellent really hot, hot chocolate, just how I like it. I had the pea soup and it was absolutely terrific, and perfect for a bit of a drizzly day. It also has some little gifts sprinkled around the cafe and I was able to get a cat nip toy in the shape of a fish which I thought was very appropriate to the area!

“nice cafe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

It is a quaint little cafe with great treats and pleasant service. We were initially looking for dinner but liked it so much returned for a cappacchino and dessert afterward going for dinner elsewhere.
