During our cross Canada tour we stumbled upon Linda’s Inn of Olde.. and it turned out to be one of our favorite memories... Linda is salt of the earth, she had us in stitches and just such a wonderful kind lady...The bar is as described...More

No words could possibly describe this place properly. If you want to experience the soul of Newfoundland go to this place and have a drink with the owner. It is an experience you will remember fondly for the rest of your life!

After being recommended to go there (specifically saying "don't Google it, just go") we went after drinks at the QV Brewery. Linda is hilarious, outgoing and loves to chat. If visiting from out of town, bring a souvenir spoon to add to her collection!

This little establishment has a lot of history in Quidi Vidi. Try the seafood chowder. It's thick and made from scratch. Whimsical comes to mind when describing this place. If you come, bring a spoon to add to their collection of hundreds that hang behind...More

We stopped in at this pub for a quick drink. The place is covered in knick-knacks and memorabilia which makes it slightly overwhelming and incredibly charming. Linda, the owner was super friendly and told us a little bit about some of her collection. Definitely worth...More

The walls are plastered with every nick nack imaginable, the floor is on a bit of a slant, the world's largest collection of souvenir spoons adorn the back wall of the bar, plastic table cloths, piano and guitar waiting a musician - what more could...More

If you are expecting a "normal" type of establishment, this is not for you. Owner lives on site and you are basically in the front part of her house. Lots of kitsch and memorabilia which seems to have be inserted with no formal plan. Floors...More

Quirky and unique place. Small menu - seafood chowder, chili, and turkey soup - but delicious. Lots of tchotchkes and memorabilia to take look at. Is literally attached to her living room.

I really like it here, although I don't get to visit as often as I'd like. Although I admit I'm a visitor, I feel like it's a much more authentically Newfoundland experience than, say, George Street. A note - be sure to call ahead to...More

We stopped in around 2pm for some lunch. The turkey soup and drinks were great. However, because of the time, the place was really quiet, and I think the women who run the place were busy trying to get set up for the evening. There...More
