A recent adventure in Twillingate led us to this little café. It was exactly what we were looking for on a sunny but cold fall afternoon. The Crow's Nest has delicious soups, chili and panini, excellent coffee and great desserts. I had a very tasty minestrone paired with a chicken panini. I couldn't resist the chocolate chip cookie dough cheesecake... More

The pea soup was great in this cozy cafe. The art on display was attractive. Clearly, people love their teas and coffees.

A quaint local stop on the way to view icebergs or whales and see rugged seashore of PEI. Food limited the day we were there to chili or soup. Both were excellent. The main feature is their homemade desserts. Try several. The owners are the servers and offer friendly conversation on the local area. A small place filled with charm.

A small cozy cafe with outdoor seating for the warmer months. It can be tight indoors if you come in a big group. The expresso coffee is great. The choice of deserts is good. They do sell artwork and jewelry made by local artists which is a great way to take back a little souvenir of the area.

We stopped in after a nearby hike and were warmed by an Irish Creme Latte and yummy Harvest Spice Loaf and scones. Friendly staff, cozy surroundings and great food .... couldn't ask for more. Wish there were more spots just like this across NFLD!

We stopped here because they had outdoor seating so we could have our dog. We were delighted with the view, the pea soup and ginger molasses cookies. Very friendly staff!

Coffee shops are difficult to find in the little towns of Newfoundland, but even if they were on every corner, few would match the Crow's Nest. The coffee was excellent and the selection of baked goodies was plentiful. My vanilla bean latte and mint cheesecake brownie made me want to repeat our hike so I could come back for more.... More

Spent a wonderful couple of hours on a sunny day on the outside deck chatting with other customers and the owner. Great coffee, don't miss the partridgeberry/lemon scones, and the resident dog is a delight. A deservedly popular spot on beautiful Twillingate.
