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

The Cat Stop in Norris Point. The coffee isn't really that special so don't get your hopes up, but the location makes it one of the better cups you'll have.

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

I live on the West Coast of Newfoundland and so I don't get there very often, but I gotta say it's a toss up between The Ship or Erin's in St.John's. They're both local hangouts for musicians and you never know when a session will break out around you. It's not unlikely that you find yourself surrounded by people playing music and drinking along with you. If I had to choose just one place, I'd try drinking pints at each place until I couldn't leave one or the other, I suppose.

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

There are loads of great little independent businesses around Newfoundland and Labrador to shop, but I guess the place I like to check for gifts from time to time is Living Planet/Johnny Ruth. You can find locally made shirt designs and believe it or not, Sherman Downey Pillows.

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

Probably from my patio here in Corner Brook. To the right is the mouth of the Humber River and to the left is the Bay of Islands. Sometimes there are porpoise and small whales and the sunsets are basically awesome every evening. Come by anytime.

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

The people living here, really. There's something about living on an island that gets into the hearts of everyone living here and it creates this overall sense of community no matter where you've put your roots down.
