We needed a good cup of espresso--and we found it in spades at Neil's Yard. Delicious cakes and crepes, too. It was thrilling to sip a good cup of coffee while watching the icebergs glistening in the sun.

Neil's Yard is a real treat. Neil is a welcoming host and makes the BEST coffee in all of Newfoundland. Also enjoyed a delicious Moroccan soup. (flavour! spices! finally...) A relaxing place to refuel with a great ocean view.
