A must for coffee and a quick breakfast sandwich. Purchased some cute stained glass! Worth a return trip for a coffee on the go!

While in St. John's, we talked to a server at the Mallard Cottage in Quidi Vidi. She asked us about our itinerary while in Newfoundland, and she suggested we go to the Two Whales coffee shop in Port Rexton after hiking the Skerwink Trail. After...hiking this awesome trail, my husband and I stopped for a light lunch: soup, sandwich, and homemade lemonade! Delicious and refreshing. And a partdige berry vegan treat! You could also buy locally grown organic squash by donation - proceeds to the local food bank. Inspiring visit to this wonderful town.More

During a week long stay in Port Rexton, we stopped by the Two Whales many times, for coffee and a baked goodie, or lunch. Food quality was high, great coffee, cute place. Loved the vegetarian food, bought the t-shirt and the cookbook!

I wanted to like this place, but I just don't. Service was not good at all, the staff all seemed completely uninterested, seemed like they were annoyed they had to work (besides the owner who was very nice). I had an ice coffee and a...piece of cake, the cake was pretty good, but the coffee tasted like it had been cut in half with water, it barely had any taste at all. Also the inside area is absolutely infested with flies, so that's nice. Maybe it was an off day or something but I seriously cannot recommend going here.More

If you want to have a break from eating seafood in the Bonavista Peninsula area in Newfoundland, Two Whales Coffee Shop in Port Rexton is the place to go for some healthy, home-grown vegetarian and vegan dishes. Two Whales is tiny coffee shop, so prepared...for line-ups.More

Lovely café which serves delicious vegetarian soups, sandwiches, desserts and beverages. They also have a small gift shop. Seating inside and out is provided. A nice lunch spot after hiking the Skerwink Trail.

We were delighted to find a vegetarian restaurant when visiting Trinity, all the meals we had a were super tasty and fresh - especially the salads. Friendly service and nice ambiance in the restaurant.

We visited a month ago for coffee and cake and were shocked at the lack of atmosphere and customer service (being in the service and tourism industry ourselves it really stood out to us) We decided to return to give it another try (and to...support local) Unfortunately exactly the same thing happened. The room was uncomfortably silent and lacked atmosphere and no welcome was given. When we walked up to the counter to order, the staff member was indifferent and not friendly at all. My older father was confused that the coffee shop is vegetarian. He was asking the girl about the options and trying to order a sandwich with meat! We all looked at the staff member to explain and maybe give an alternative option he may enjoy. Maybe a “meaty” type sandwich with mushrooms. But she just stood there and offered no help or explanation at all. The sandwich and were excellent but we were left feeling disappointed for the second time. We will return for the great food!More

We weren't expecting to find a vegetarian lunch and coffee place in Port Rexton, so when we saw Two Whales we knew we had to try it. We arrived for a late lunch after a morning of hiking, and the meal we got was absolutely...perfect - a light tasty sandwich and cold drinks. The desserts we tried were lovely as well. Would recommed.More

Great little place to get a caffeine fix and a treat. It’s obvious the owners take great pride of offering quality ingredients. They have a beautiful garden out back for fresh ingredients. Lovely beer/coffee garden out front surrounded by wild rose bushes. Roadside library to...borrow a book to enjoy. Brownies are delish! Lots of Vegan/Organic/GF options on menu. Small selection of NL treats/crafts/coffee/merch. Gorgeous place. Doesn’t open until 10 though so not for the early riser to depend on ;). But great for a late morning/afternoon pick me up.More
