Oh I’d have to say Rocket Bakery on Water Street. Because a coffee often means a croissant or a fish cake too. The b’ys know what they’re at.

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

Erin’s Pub

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

The Mall. (…is there another place?)

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

If you’re on the West Coast, pretty much anywhere in Gros Morne.  If you’re around the Avalon, anywhere in Placentia Bay.  As for St. John’s specifically, I think The Rooms gives you one of the nicest views of downtown and the harbour… or Cape Spear… or Signal Hill… anywhere!

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

1. Have a feed and hear a few tunes at Mallard Cottage on a Sunday afternoon.

2. Go to Cape Spear when the whales are in and just sit back and watch. That’s good for the soul.

3. Go to the NL Folk Festival. The best.

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

I think the sense of humour you find in NL is amazing. It’s very unique, witty, and intelligent.  I’ll often find myself laughing at something uniquely NL and think “wow, would that work anywhere else? Are we cracked?” …I like that.
