St. John’s, capital of the province of Newfoundland and Labrador, in Canada, boasts excellent places to eat. If you’re looking for the perfect brunch in the area, these restaurants have great food, greater service and create the ideal atmosphere for eating out.
This tavern is an ode to the merchants who, for hundreds of years, called St. John’s and the province home. The restaurant is co-owned by head chef Jeremy Charles, who celebrates local produce through the dishes he creates. Think pulled-pork pancakes drizzled in sticky, sweet maple syrup and confit turkey cakes with a cranberry compote dolloped on top. Although the food steals most of the limelight at this dainty spot, the brunch cocktail menu is equally appealing. Wash your grub down with a Lemon Meringue Tie made with Earl Grey syrup. Request a window seat for views of the harbour.
This family-owned spot in the heart of the charming Petty Harbour has a menu to rival any seafood joint. Visitors with even the most particular tastes will be well catered for, whether you’ve a penchant for ground moose with fried mushrooms, lobster poutine or panko-breaded mussels on a garlic bruschetta. This place knows how to cook cod in more ways than you can count, and, for the non-meat-eaters, there’s an equally innovative vegan selection. Our top tip? Turn up hungry and open-minded.
