“Quality food and relaxing atmosphere”
Reviewed 9 August 2012

Canvas Cove was just what Twillingate needed!! The food was made with such fresh ingredients and perfect portion sizes. The open concept is so inviting and it's interesting to watch Chef Nick at work.. Would reccomend to anyone looking for a quality meal in Twillingate.

“A Fabulous Way to Satisfy your Palette Tucked Away in a Scenic Nuk!”
Reviewed 9 August 2012

A clean, comfortable establishment with refreshing, healthy and creative dishes! It's a nice change from the typical repeated deep fried chains. The food and drinks are delectable as well as the service. The view from the cafe is breath taking-an experience for all 5 senses!!!

“Great service”
Reviewed 8 August 2012

While the word "cafe" normally connotes a food menu that consists mainly of snacks, make no mistake: this is a restaurant that serves high-end dishes that are prepared and presented by a very skilled chef. Although it was very welcoming, the restaurant would benefit from a kids menu to better serve families; however, we found the owner very receptive to suggestions and genuinely motivated to keep customers happy. With some minor tweaks that should be expected from a new establishment, the Canvas Cove Cafe could offer the best dining experience in Twillingate.

“"Sea Side Cafe"”
Reviewed 3 August 2012

A great establishment to drop in to satisfy your coffee craving with a fresh cup of speciality blends of Canvas Cove Cafe Coffee! Or, if requireing something to take care of your hunger, try otheir tasty soup, sandwich, salad or baked goods which change for day to day! With added seafood and/or fresh vegetables with some dishes! As, a regular customer I enjoy my daily stop by even if just for my morning coffee and to sit and chat with the wonderful and friendly staff!!

P.S. This is the second time entering this review due to writing on a employees public computer, and the incorrect account was posted as my personal review.
