Healthy fare which was great after a diet of B & B bacon & eggs. Loved the porridge & all the fruit. Coffee was great - I had a Latte & would recommend it.

We had breakfast at Philip's as part of our stay at Rosedale Manor. The quiche was the best I ever had, and I've had a few. The porridge with maple blueberry sauce was equally delicious - the first time in 43 years I've liked porridge....More

Open only for guests of the BnB. The food is exceptionally fine and guests have a menu choice. Beautiful view.

If you need a reason to visit Placentia...this is it! Delicious food, lovely people and if you're lucky...a cooking lesson from Philip..."put love in your food...it's the essential ingredient". Linda serves delightfully brewed coffee while carrying on a wonderful conversation...filled with the joy of life.

Phil is an excellent storyteller and terrific cook. Philip's Cafe is on the market so if you go, make sure it is still Philip's cafe. The breakfast was excellent and I would certainly not hesitate to recommend. Phil is the other half of Rosedale Manor...More

We lucked into this lovely diner to find an awesome husband and wife duo sieving some of the best breakfast cuisine in Newfoundland. The lineup started twenty minutes before they opened.

Had breakfast here, terrific place. Great selection of food, very friendly owners (Linda and Philip), delicious baked goods, nice interior - well worth a stop to have a snack or pick up a sandwich or muffin to go. Too bad the place is for sale...More
