Ate there three times and food was delicious!! NOTE - famous sandwiches are not available on dinner menu. First time, solo at lunch, had the chowder served in a bread bowl, it was delicious, full of different types of seafood, not just 'milky' sauce, wish...I took a photo. Second time, x5 family for dinner (July 1st wknd made a reservation), blackened salmon, chicken, were delicious and portions are generous!!!! Lasagna is served in a cast iron pan and the portion can be shared among several!! Desserts, all homemade. Third visit was in September, cool weather day, we needed a lunch soup and coffee. It's a small place so there was a lineup inside the door but, we didn't have to wait long to order or for our soup/sandwiches to arrive. Both were large servings and delicious!!! Patio tables outside are great option. Hope this place stays open all year!!More

We enjoyed the best lunch we’ve had on our 3 week holiday in the Maritimes. Great turkey sandwich made with excellent bread, delicious pea soup with the same excellent bread! Staff friendly and exuded the Newfoundland spirit.

We ate here last week and the food was amazing! On this visit we had the fish cakes, chili and club sandwich all of which was top shelf. Sadly there was zero room left for dessert after our meal but I am still thinking about...that coconut cream pie. 🤤More

Cute little Café in the heart of Bonavista. It was very busy when we visited, so we grabbed some cake to go. The carrot cake and coconut cream pie was delicious. Lots of other great options there as well. We will try them on our...next visit!More

Dropped in for a quick bite. Decided on the turkey sandwich. Omg. So good. Home made bread. My wife had the roast beef sandwich and also enjoyed it. Great little place with a pretty good sized menu. Would be interested to try their breakfast.

I’m sure folks go to the Quintal Cafe for delicious food, and it WAS delicious! Two of us had chicken Alfredo. One of us had chorizo lasagna with wine. Each was made with homemade pasta and a delicious medley of flavors. With such awesome food,...it’s easy to understand why this tiny café was filled to near capacity for dinner tonight. (I’d call for reservations for dinner.) They also had an awesome musician playing Newfie favorites along with a little classic country. But I do believe the Quintal Cafe has another special gift gift for all who enter: the beautiful welcoming gift of hospitality and fun. The owner and waitress helped to make the evening really special for us and our dinner guest, a new young Canadian resident, and it was her birthday. How very special they made her feel with their welcome, their Happy Birthday song, awesome birthday dessert and fun! One diner asked our fun-loving waitress to dance…and the fun began! We have a few more days in Bonavista. Hopefully, we will be available to stop in for lunch —— the lunch menu of sandwiches, wraps, soups and salads looked as awesome as our dinner choices. And everything is made from scratch. Also, I understand that the kitchen party music happens only on Friday evenings. Whether for breakfast, lunch or dinner - do not miss this wonderful little bistro cafe. They put the heart in the heart of Bonavista!More

Stopped here for lunch before exploring rest of Bonavista and greatly enjoyed the food and atmosphere. The restaurant has a cute, eclectic vibe. The sandwiches and salads were really delicious and there was a great selection of sandwiches to choose from. They offered hot drinks...as well as a selection of beer from local breweries. The service was very friendly and helpful. Food came out fairly quickly and was very much enjoyed. They had a small selection of merchandise for sale, including pottery from a local potter featuring a drawing of their restaurant. The staff was even able to direct us to the potter’s shop! Definitely recommend if you are in the area.More

Enjoyed a great lunch here. No complaints from the 3 sandwiches - lobster roll, Turkey with cranberry and chicken avocado wrap. Also super appreciated them making French toast for my FIL since we arrived just a few minutes past noon.

Upon finishing my breakfast here I don't think I could have possibly been any happier. As soon as we walked in I felt comfortable and at home. Our server acknowledged us immediately and as the place was full of guests she offered to create a...table that would seat us. Everything on their menu sounded out of this world and it was difficult to choose one dish, however, they smoke their own bacon and bake their own bread so I knew I had to go with the big breakfast to enjoy both of those! I also had a latte and our server made the cutest flower Art on top! The breakfast arrived quickly with eggs cooked to perfection, bread extremely fresh and the bacon was out of this world! The next time we visit I want to go back for lunch or dinner and try the other options available. They also have the option to order meals to go, you can purchase house smoked salmon, homemade jams etc. A definite stop if you'll be traveling through the area! I cannot reccomend this place enough!!More

That house smoked bacon, wow! This cafe's food and drinks were great, the space was warm and felt homey, and it's owners and staff clearly put their hearts and souls into this place. While we were there, locals kept coming in and it's clear the...community loves this cafe as much as the owners. Can't wait to come back whenever I visit Newfoundland!More
