The breakfast was pretty average other than the quantity. Lots of home fries and bacon. Good coffee and fair price.

The fish a chips were AMAZING. I will go back next time I'm in town! Lightly breaded, tender cod, mouth watering taste. The service was friendly and helpful, atmosphere was cheery and enjoyable. I have zero complaints.

Very cute spot nestled in Twillingate. The staff were friendly. I ordered the calamari which was delicious and a slice of Partridge Berry Pie which was great! Our table overlooked the marina out front which was a nice touch.
