What to eat, drink and see to stay cozy in and around St. John’s, Newfoundland, this fall.
Fall is my favourite season. I love the clothes, the weather, the beautiful colours, the light, the soups… all of it. I put together a few of my favourite places to eat, drink and see to stay cozy in and around St. John’s during this crisp time of the year.
A fall picnic
Dress well, order a Terre picnic and go on an adventure! I particularly love the Shoreline Heritage Walking Trail in Bay Roberts. Don’t feel like going that far? You can walk up Signal Hill or enjoy your picnic looking at the Narrows from Alt Hotel’s patio.
A brunch to warm your soul
Who does not love brunch? Comfort food (hollandaise, somebody?), cocktails for breakfast and good company make for a great way to spend the day. My favourite brunches, you ask?
Pssst! These two lovely restaurants also have a Sunday dinner series. Check them out!
A brewery tour
Newfoundlanders do love their beers, so it’s no surprise that we have great microbreweries all around the province. In St. John’s, I do have a soft spot for Bannerman Brewing Co, for they have great beers and a stunning room. I also love the tap room at Quidi Vidi Brewery, where my partner and I like to sit by the window, look at fishing stages and play board games all afternoon long.
A warm cocktail
If you are in the mood for a short ride, go visit Newfoundland Distillery Company. Their new tasting room is absolutely gorgeous and right by the water. (Note that it’s about 45 minutes away from St. John’s – so drink responsibly.)
A cultural experience
For the art, for the history, for the unique point of view on St. John’s and the harbour, there is nothing quite like a visit to The Rooms on a fall day. It’s family friendly and the café is a great spot for lunch.
Voilà! Have a great cozy fall on the Rock!
