“Perfect for a light dinner before the theatre!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

Our family of four didn't have reservations when we arrived in Trinity to have dinner before attending the theatre, but the Mercantile said no problem. We all enjoyed a gorgeous chicken sandwich, and some turkey soup or chili.

It's a bright open restaurant, with a few local items for sale to entertain you while you wait, though the wait isn't long, and you can watch your dinner being prepped.

**A big freezer of ice cream flavours will tempt you after dinner, don't say no!

The price was right, and the food was delicious. The server was a lovely young man who was friendly, and patient, and brought us some extra bread to soak up the yummy chili!

“Lovely place, lovely people”

The best homemade salsa ever!
After waiting in line at the Doc Marina for so long we decided to try the Mercantile and so glad we did. We had an awesome healthy meal. Also had a wondeful chat with the female cook and young student serving. Very friendly atmosphere with great food.

“Great staff, great food - affordable to boot!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

Great and healthy food in Newfoundland is not as easy to come by as you might think...great chili, great sandwiches....they also have less healthy options too, like amazing waffle cones and great baked goods....and they have a great selection of Newfie beers to accompany your meal
