Doing a short trip across Newfoundland and stayed in Bonavista for a night. Accommodations were terrific and breakfast at the Tea Room was a perfect start to our day! Dene gave great service and and advice. Highly recommend!

Stop in for lunch as the restaurant we had planned to go to was closed for the season. Absolutely lovely in every way. Food was incredible and our server, Pauline, was a gem! The atmosphere in the tea room was old world charm. We all...wished we were in the area longer so that we could go back!More

My husband and I had a delicious dinner here. They had three dishes I’ve been wanting to try - Jigg’s Dinner, Fish and Brewis, and Partridgeberry Pie. They were all absolutely delicious. Service is friendly and quick. Tea is hot and the restaurant is cozy...and very clean. I would definitely go back!More

Simply excellent (And trust me, we rarely 100% satisfied with restaurant food, but this was a pleasant exception). My partner and I are not really familiar with Newfoundland cuisine, so we wanted something authentic. My partner ordered the cod gratin (delicious!) while I - the...Fisherman's Brewis. I won't lie it sounded a bit questionable, but it turned out terrific and utterly tasty. It's creamy and decadent yet light at the same time and basically melt-in-your mouth. Oh yeah, we also couldn't resist and ordered a cod cake (served with a rhubarb relish), and it was impeccable. Really great combination of salty and tart. Excellent job and thank you for not disappointing us (This doesn't happen often lol)More

My husband and I had an outstanding dining experience at Mifflin’s Tea Room last night. This is our first time in Newfoundland, so we just had to try the “Newfie Sampler” which we found both intriguing and delicious! The baked beans were to die for,...almost the same as my mom‘s, but better somehow LOL. The roast beef dinner was also delicious, just like homemade. Their selection of desserts is extensive, all of them fresh and made by hand with love! I ordered tea with dessert, and was so pleasantly surprised when they brought me a little teapot, with a candle warmer. It’s a rare to get tea in a restaurant where they actually know how to make it! So refreshing. The tea room appears to be a favourite with locals and visitors alike, the place was packed and Staff was friendly, kind and efficient.More

Our group of three adults booked into “Ocean’s Edge” for a single overnight accommodation and wished we could have spent a week in it while visiting Bonavista and area. The Ocean’s Edge has just recently opened as part of the accommodations offered by Dean and...Liz, the very friendly owners of the Mifflin Tea Room and the Mifflin Inn. The Ocean’s Edge, as the name suggests, is located directly on the shore of the Bonavista Bay with an amazing ocean view from three of the four bedrooms, the living room and the large deck facing the ocean. The house was just recently built and has been finished in top notch order, with bathrooms in each bedroom, queen size beds and sitting areas with a flat screen TV in each room. The separate dining room seats 8 while the living room had two large leather sofas and additional chairs with a large flat screen TV and multiple cable channels. The deck which faces the ocean had several comfortable fold-out executive style chairs. The full kitchen was well equipped with everything you would expect in your own home, including a dishwasher! Overall, the whole experience was SO relaxing and comfortable that we were all sad to have to move on to our next stop. I would heartedly recommend contacting Dean and Liz to book into this absolutely lovely rental home any time you are even remotely in the Bonavista area!More

We had two visits to the Mifflin’s Tea Room recently. First visit was for coffee and delicious tea biscuits with raisins. Secondly, we went for lunch and both enjoyed the delicious macaroni and cheese. The service was friendly and the restaurant nicely decorated to create...a warm and cozy atmosphere. We highly recommend this eatery in Bonavista. They do have a large lovely patio for outdoor eating but it was a bit too chilly the days we visited.More
