Six Foodie Spots in Newfoundland

Head here for a taste of the local cuisine 


Food in Newfoundland has forever been synonymous with the land, sea and the culture of its people. Here are six areas throughout the province where you can feast on meals that celebrate this tradition.


Crack open super-fresh lobster that you netted yourself at Doyle W. Sansome & Sons Ltd. Super Lobster Pool

St. John’s

Pick wild edibles in the woods with Lori of Cod Sounds, then feast on Labrador Arctic char or moose at a traditional boil-up. 

Return for thirds to the laden cake table at Chef Todd Perrin’s Mallard Cottage. 

At Quidi Vidi Brewery, join the Friday kitchen party for live music, beer brewed with 25,000-year-old iceberg water and seasonal fare.


Spot whales from your picnic blanket while savouring molasses oatmeal bread sandwiches and dandelion tea with Lighthouse Picnics.

Petty Harbour

Feast on fresh-off-the-boat codfish—battered and served with hand-cut chips—in a historic fisher’s home at Chafe’s Landing Restaurant.

Norris Point

Polish off The Black Spruce’s figgy duff with molasses sauce and sea buckthorn ice cream—a novel take on a classic.
