If you drive down the Boavista Peninsula on this side, make some time to drop into this small Cafe and the Craft Shop next door. If no one is in the store, go over to the cafe and visa versa. This is mostly a one...More

We really enjoyed our meal at Susie's. This tiny restaurant offers simple, home-cooked, tasty meals and friendly service. We had the fish cakes, and they were very good. Worth a visit!

After nearly 10 days of travel in NL we almost gave up hope of finding a traditional road-side seafood cafe with fresh local catch. (There are surprising few places in northeast NL still offering "off-the-dock" fish and shellfish.) Then, late lunchtime, we spotted Susie's, a...More

Experience a time when dining was not hurried. At Susie's Cafe you will enjoy dining in a rural setting unlike any other. Dine in a converted 1940's family home with little change in anything. Have your meal inside or outside on our veranda while enjoying the view of beautiful Blackhead Bay.While enjoying your meal, you may be lucky enough to see whales, icebergs and wild seabirds of many kinds.
