Hello from gorgeous Norton’s Cove! Here’s your update on what’s happening this week at the Café!

Our hours are 10am to 8pm daily (except Tuesdays & Wednesdays). If you would like to call to make a reservation, the number is: 536-2633.  

In the Café Giftshop, I’ve added some dishes. We have lots of extra dishes in stock at the café, and now, if you like our teapots, our milk bottles, or our beverage dispensers, you can take them home with you! I received a new shipment of Newfoundland Sea Salt this week, and so we now have our 150g jars and our 10g tins restocked. We have new product from the Dark Tickle Company, with bags of tea in 5 different flavours as well as lots of jams, sauces, and relish.

  • Pecan Butter Tarts
  • Salt Fish Ravioli
  • cafe latté

We’re starting the week with Amanda’s…
Vegetarian Soup: HUNGARIAN MUSHROOM $4 cup; $6 bowl
Hearty Soup: ITALIAN ZUCCHINI & SAUSAGE (GF)  $6 cup; $8 bowl

Chrys continues to bake us gorgeous treats; she changes things up each day, so pop in to see what’s new!  Right now, we have: brownies, apple cinnamon and strawberry rhubarb hand pies, chocolate layer cake with rum & butter buttercream icing, partridgeberry scones, pecan butter tarts, chocolate biscotti, and fudge in addition to our regular dessert menu.

Gilbert is making his Jamaican Chicken for us this week! It thrills me to show off our authentic Jamaican dishes from our cook who left Jamaica for Newfoundland just a couple of years ago. He’s one of us now, and we are happy to dig in to his flavourful cooking style!

Norton’s Cove Café

Our hours are now 10am to 8pm daily (except Tuesdays & Wednesdays). If you would like to call to make a reservation, the number is: 536-2633.  

I have started to create a small foodie gift shop in the front room of the café, which will grow as I order in new products each week. You’ll find things there like sea salt from the Newfoundland Salt Company, and all our favourite jams and sauces from the Dark Tickle Company, and Norton’s Cove merchandise. I’ll update you with new products as they arrive!

Our biggest news is that Ted, our Kitchen Magician, has finished work with us for the season. As things are slowing down, we have to work with a smaller staff to keep being successful. But don’t you worry! Ted has done a marvelous job of training the rest of the kitchen crew, and Gilbert, Amanda, Chrys, & Duke will continue to produce the quality and taste we’re so proud of!

Wednesday Excursions

Thanks to Ian Foster for this fun .gif of Jack, on our way around the Greenspond hiking trail.

A stop at Ida’s, a quaint and lovely tea-room in Greenspond, made for an excellent afternoon spent with Ian and Nancy. This is my cheesecake… I didn’t photograph all the other goodies, but we didn’t hold back and enjoyed our treats immensely!

Ourosboros Live @ Norton’s Cove

Last night was magic. A band from St. John’s, Ourosboros, came to stay & play at Norton’s Cove to the delight of all ticket-holders! Amazing upbeat music with some twists to make us laugh while we danced!

These musicians were not only lots of fun to listen to, but fun to hang out with before and after the show. Susan Evoy is a comic genius, as far as I’m concerned!
And we get to do it all again, as the band has agreed to come back for another concert in 2020! Until then, we have their CD to add to the Norton’s Cove playlist.
Did you know that all the singer/songwriters on our Café playlist have performed Live @ Norton’s Cove?

At the Studio…

Product Spotlight!

It’s the town of New Wes Valley’s favourite time of year! Crab Festival! So in honour of this town’s most loved event (aside from Chase the Ace); this week’s product spotlight at Norton’s Cove Studio is our Snow Crab print! Whether it’s to show your Crab Fest pride, celebrate one of our local industries or just for the beauty of the artwork, we’ve got you covered! From $105 plus tax unframed to $185 plus tax framed.

Unframed Snow Crab

Happy Crab Fest everyone! Be safe and have fun!

At the Studio

Year round by chance or appointment, we’re open from 10-6 everyday except Wednesday! Drop in to meet Janet and new studio assistant Rhianna (that’s me) and witness printmaking in action. Or paper cutting, shirt steaming, or another one of my many duties.

Swing in for a chat with the artist about some of her new projects, prints or how overcomplicated it is to set up a new laptop and why it shouldn’t be. There’s lots to see and do; markedly, prints by Janet Davis, inspired by daily life in outport Newfoundland.

There’s a whole summer ahead of us and lots of time! We love company!
