We had a wonderful lunch, crepes and salad, plus cheesecake ... and who knew you'd find this in a tiny seaside restaurant. Neil was charming and the ambience was the best Newfoundland has to offer, warm and gracious.

We popped in for lunch, and were happy to find they serve Breton crepes. The carrot ginger soup was delicious too. Casual, homey, friendly.

Waited for over 30 minutes to be served then informed over half his menu they ran out! He said they were too busy and ran out of food. Took forever to serve the customers that were there.

Charming little cafe with great crepes. Located in a 100 year old structure on the Mockbeggar plantation. Neil, the owner, was very friendly and informative.
