Review: I ate here on my recent trip to Saint John's and was truly impressed. I was surprised to find a vegetarian restaurant of such quality nestled in the heart of a small centuries old fishing town. I had the veggie delight I think, which was a relatively simple dish comprised of roasted potatoes, mushroom gravy, and beet and carrot strings. I added baby spinach to it as well for a small additional charge. It was fantastic, and hardy enough to sate me after a couple of hours of hiking around the coast. This place is not completely vegan, but it does clearly label its vegan options with a heart which makes them easy to identify and limits questions to a minimum. The price for most entrees is around 10 Canadian, which isn't bad for quality veg food, but isn't necessarily cheap either, not for me anyway. The interior seemed nice and cozy but we opted for the outdoor seating because it was such a beautiful today. The patio is a bit small so you might have to wait for a table to open up, but in my opinion it is definitely worth it. The staff was friendly and helpful, but sometimes the service seems to lag a little bit. This is more of an observation than a criticism; overall I had a fantastic experience. I was with my girlfriend's family most of the time, all locals and none of which are vegetarian or vegan and they love the food there. This isn't just a must visit for vegetarians and vegans, it's a must for anyone visiting Saint John's.
