This Week at Norton’s Cove Café

We had an overwhelmingly successful Feast of Saint Valentine event at the Café on the 13th & 14th. In the fall and early winter, it’s easy to feel a bit tuckered out when it comes to thinking about the café and all the work involved trying to make everything run smoothly. We want the business to provide what our customers want, but also it needs to make enough money to pay the bills and enable us to keep going. That can be pretty stressful! But this event in mid-February, when we’ve been feeling refreshed and almost ready for spring to arrive again, reminds us of how much we love what we’re doing, and how much this venue means to the people around us. Honestly, the comments coming back have been very heart-warming. And I thank you from the bottom of my heart. It really is the nourishment our business needs!
Now that we have completed the downstairs space at the Café, which we call the Lower Deck, and some of the COVID restrictions look like they’ll be relaxing soon all across the country, I’m hoping to line up a new series of Live @ the Lower Deck events. I am looking for professional performers to stand in this spotlight and entertain us. Interested artists should introduce themselves via email and include links to examples of their work.

This Week at Norton’s Cove Café


Lockdown continues at Norton’s Cove, with the province at the highest level in the COVID-19 Alert Level System. I am working away as usual at the studio & café, as I always do during the winter months. In January, while we were open to the public, I had 6 visitors in store- so no great loss for me by not having to shovel the front steps! I am thankful every day for how lucky I am to be able to continue on with life as usual while others are really struggling with loneliness and fear of contracting the awful disease. I feel very privileged.

We’re still working away at the Lower Deck, and I took this picture on Saturday while upstairs for a coffee break. I’m so impressed with the way Norton’s Cove Café turned out- so many craftspeople are involved to create this kind of space, from my own inspiration and choices in fixtures, to the designer’s expertise, the carpenter’s skills, the furniture makers, the upholsterers, not to mention actually running the place as a business! It has been a lot of hard work and a sharp learning curve for me to be the owner of a restaurant, but I feel like all that is paying off and I think that Team Norton’s Cove has created one of the best restaurants in the province. It’s certainly my favourite!

Did you know that many of the Café Gift-shop’s products are available through our online shop? During this lockdown period, and always, you can pick up your jams and relish and thump mats at the studio- contactless- or have them delivered to you via Canada Post.
