We visited on July 21st 2021, menu was great but not child friendly. No options for children. I had the “Newfie sampler” the fisherman’s brewis was a small portion which was suppose to have traditional “scrunchions ” mixed in it but alas there was none...to seen or tasted so that was disappointing. The beans were great and toutons. My little guy had bacon and toast since their was no children’s options. The biggest disappointment however was their soup, we were told they had great soup… maybe it was a off day but the soup of the day which was beef n vegetables was terrible!!! it was clearly made with canned beef broth and the vegetables were hard, we are not accustomed to vegetables in soup being hard and barely cooked or so salty from canned broth that no other flavours came through. The tea and dishes were cute and staff were nice as well.More

Had a late lunch this weekend with a cup of lovely tea. The toutons were really good and not greasy at all. The baked bensì and Bologna was also great. Lovely experience.

We went for supper on a Thursday evening close to the end of season the food was excellent! Highly recomend their seafood chowder but all of the food we had was delicious! When my husband was putting the rest of his chicken parmesean in a...to go container he ended up spilling it on the floor. The server came out and offered to make a brand new meal free of charge because they felt bad (even though it was my husband's own fault haha). Wish we had room for dessert because it looked delicious! Will definitely be going again!More

Dined here for dinner. Service was great and the food was good. Returned here for dessert the next day, which was also good. Location is small, so a reservation is recommended.

It was very busy when we arrived so we decided to sit outside on the patio. There was a bit of a wait for service due to how busy it was, but the service was very friendly. We both had the chowder, which was so...thick you could stand a spoon up in it! It was excellent! I had the Atlantic salmon dinner which was delicious. My husband had the fettuccine alfredo with shrimp and scallops which he enjoyed. The restroom was clean.More

Went for lunch with 3yr old granddaughter. When she asked for some milk to drink with her macaroni it came in a small teapot and a demi-tasse cup and saucer. A marvellous memory for a young princess.

My parents came in from NB and we went to there for supper. The fish chowder was the best we’ve ever had ! It was all fish chunks and chunks - I couldn’t finish it. My daughter had the pea soup and she said it...rivalled her grandmothers.. and don’t get me started on the peanut butter cheesecake !! Cozy and all homemade ! Certainly memorable . Thank you so much !!More

Saying this place is superb still does not do it justice! I don't know what was better.... the food or the service! The cod au gratin was a very generous portion and tasted fantastic! The roast beef dinner was delicious, as was the chicken parmigiana....We expected a modest chicken club wrap and salad, but instead received a meal that resulted in a take away for the next day. The strawberry rhubarb tea was amazing. As for the desserts.... well you will just have to indulge for yourself! Not to be missed! Thanks once again to the staff at the tea room! You blew us away once again! Well done!More

Best breakfast ever!!!!! Absolutely delicious and the staff were the best. Food was so good we went back for supper. Again absolutely delicious!! Prices were more than reasonable. Not one complaint from our group of six. All home made desserts which we took with us...to share and taste later. OMG they were to die for!!!!!!More
