This would be an oustanding place to have lunch based on the food alone, but add to that the panoramic view of St. John's and its location in "The Rooms" museum/archive/art gallery and you have a triple home run. The only downside is the wait to be seated as it's rightly a popular place. Arrive early!

We arrived a bit before noon, which meant we were seated right away. By the time we had finished our lunch, people were waiting in line. After having our lunch we realized why. Not only is the view inspiring, but the food itself was surprisingly good (for a museum cafe).

They Cob salad is best kind. Definitely worth stopping by for lunch! Our server was quick and professional and upon a quick peep at the kitchen looked clean and well kept a major plus in my eyes!

We went at 12:45pm asked for a table was told 30min wait. We decided to wait and had to wait almost 2 hours. We decide not to leave because the kids were so hungry and we didn't want to drive anywhere else because parking down town is a nightmare.
When we finally got seated we had to wait 30min before we got our drinks. Kids were starving.
Finally got our drinks and went to order our food and 2 of the things I wanted to ordered were sold out. Sigh... When we finally got our food it was excellent but not sure it was worth 3 hours of waiting. You need to work on your service because your food is awesome.
