They had only two lunch items, fish chowder and chilli. The fish chowder was excellent. Their mainstays are beverages and pastries. The lattes were good, the view from the patio was lovely

The Crows Nest is open from 8-10 pm, closed Sundays (went today and was disappointed!) and during the day but closed supper time. Great stop after watching sunset at the lighthouse.

This place is very small but cute. Baked goods were awesome! Coffee was good too. They also sell goods from local artisans. I bought a painting and pewter bowl from them. Gorgeous view too!

This cafe was a cute place to stop in after our hike by the lighthouse. They have a couple of options for lunch. We had chilli with fresh bread which was really good. There is much variety for lunch but they have delicious looking desserts and a cute patio with nice views

We were four women bicycling in Newfoundland for 3 weeks so our needs were different from most folks. A great place to have a bowl of homemade chowder and fresh bread after you've been up to see the lighthouse! The views are amazing and the coffee was awesome!
