Where’s your favourite place in Newfoundland & Labrador to grab a coffee?

Oh my! For coffee it would have to be a tie between Fixed Coffee and Rocket Bakery! They are both unique and cozy little spots to have a yarn with a friend. Also... The almond croissants at Rocket Bakery make me froth at the mouth a little.

Where’s your favourite place in Newfoundland & Labrador to grab a pint?
I’d have to go with the Duke of Duckworth for this one! Great selection of beers on tap, friendly staff, and usually lots of familiar faces on hand!

Where’s your favourite place to shop in Newfoundland & Labrador?

I’m not big on shopping, but if I had to choose I’d say Posie Row. Great accessories!

Where in Newfoundland & Labrador would we stand to see your favourite view?

This is a tough one. I’ve been doing a lot of hiking the past few years around the East Coast Trail so I’ve seen some unbelievable views along the trails... My favorite might be the Blackhead trail, just between St. John’s and Cape Spear. Great spot for a picnic on the edge of a cliff! Also the top of Gros Morne Mountain on the west coast is pretty freakin special.

Name 3 things we’ve gotta do when we visit Newfoundland & Labrador:

1. Explore Gros Morne National Park

2. Signal Hill trail

3. Get screeched in at Christian’s Pub on George Street

What makes Newfoundland & Labrador such a special place on earth for you?

The people, the music, my family, the scenery, the hiking... It’s all glorious. Newfoundlanders are a proud bunch of people and there’s a reason for that! I wouldn’t trade this place for anywhere in the world.
