Studio Update

I’m loving my days in the studio… I think this will be my most productive year since I was a student! Smudge Herring No. 17 is on the easel.

I have lots of artwork in stock, from $5 up! A piece for every budget.

I want to send out a THANK YOU to every person who has purchased a piece, big or small, here at Norton’s Cove Studio this year. Even #justacard is so important to the success of this little business! You let me continue to grow my businesses at Norton’s Cove!

These Smudge Herring pieces are available here in the studio, or in the online shop: https://nortonscove.com/collections/everything/products/smudge-herring

This week at Norton’s Cove Café

Please call the Café to make reservations: 536-2633
We’ve been busy lately, and if you don’t have a reservation, we may not be able to seat you. We have a very limited number of seats. So call ahead! Even if it’s just a few minutes before your visit.

Starting today, we’ll be serving these soups:
Hearty Soup of the Day: Cod Chowder
Veggie Soup of the Day: Hungarian Mushroom

Check out our full menu HERE

And please see below the pictures for all our COVID-19 related changes and policies…

We’re doing a good job keeping COVID-19 away from our beautiful province, and we’d really like to keep it that way! Please follow our COVID-19 protocol to ensure that we keep ‘the Covid’ away!

  • Please call to make a reservation. This way, we can avoid clusters of people at the entrance. Please wait in your car (or somewhere that others won’t have to come within 6 feet of you) until it’s time for your reservation. Please do not wait on the front steps. When you open the door, step back first, to make sure there isn’t someone right in front of you! If there is a cluster gathering as you are ready to leave the building, you are welcome to exit via the side entrance.
  • Hand sanitizer is available in the vestibule. Please use this when you enter, and again as you exit.
  • We are asked to dispose of any paper menu that has been used just once. We don’t like to be wasteful, so we’ll be asking you to share a single menu, or to use a digital menu: we have a QR code attached to the menu additions chalkboard in the vestibule that you can zap with your mobile device’s camera for access to our full menus. Simply focus your camera on the QR code square, and a link will pop up on your screen. Tap that, and you’ve got our full menu! If you need to use the free WiFi in order to access the online menu, our password for Norton’s Cove Café WiFi is ilovetiffins.
  • To avoid contact with you, your server will place food and drink items at one end of the table. Please pass them along to the right recipient at your table. When you’re done with a dish, please place it back at the end of the table so that your server can remove it without leaning in next to you. It feels weird, I know.
  • No hugs or handshakes, please. I’m in favour of the curtsy/bow greeting, or a nod/wink. Or in other words, please practice physical distancing from those who are not in your bubble.
  • If you have recently arrived in Newfoundland and are in quarantine, please phone in your order- we’d gladly make a contact-less delivery to anyone in the greater New-Wes-Valley area. I can send you an invoice that you can pay via nortonscove.com
  • Yes, almost everything on the menu is available for take-out. Just call in your order!
  • And lastly, if you feel any symptoms of illness that might possibly be linked to the Corona-virus, please stay home and contact a medical professional.

Thank you all for your continued support, especially in times like this, when things are a little weird. It means a LOT to me, enabling me to employ nine people full time, and to share some joy and beauty with all who stop in. And thank you to my gorgeous employees who are able to bring us all such great service and products at Norton’s Cove Café: Duke, Ted, Chrys, Amanda, Noah, Hannah, Trina, and Fred. xx

I’m very pleased to report that the Canadian & Newfoundland & Labrador governments are helping Norton’s Cove Studio & Café stay open while our visitor numbers are reduced right now. Without their support, I would not be able to keep my business running at present. Thank you to everyone out there working to keep businesses in business!

The Broadcast

I had the great pleasure of being interviewed by Jane Adey for The (Fisheries) Broadcast on CBC radio recently. She did an excellent job of filling in the details of the history of my heritage building/studio, and ended with the perfect finishing touch.

Throw Back Thursday

T’is the season for whalewatching. All along the shore, we can watch humpbacks spout and jump as they frolic in the capelin filled waters. They’re a treat to watch, even if you’ve seen them a thousand times.

This week at Norton’s Cove Café

Great news! We’ve finally sourced some local cod! Ted’s pan fried cod is to-die-for! He’s got something special in mind for a special later in the week too: something involving curry- mmm!

Starting today, we’ll be serving these soups:
Hearty Soup of the Day: Chicken & Rice
Veggie Soup of the Day: Moroccan Carrot Lentil

A Note from the Studio Assistant

I have frequented the Cape Freels beach often since arriving, and it never fails to amaze me. On my last visit, I collected some gorgeous driftwood, and I have something in mind for it. Stay tuned for more art updates from Norton’s Cove Studio!
