Description: Beautifully nestled in the heart of Historic Redcliffe Quay in St. John's, Cafe Napoleon was formerly an old sugar warehouse by a busy dockside. Sympathetically renovated, the restaurant serves a cosmopolitan menu using the finest fresh, local fish, meat, vegetables & fruits. The homemade desserts are just mouthwatering! Dont want to eat, then just chill with a Cocktail in the new Lounge Bar looking out at the beuatiful gardens and watersedge. You can be certain of the warmest of welcomes and excellent customer service from owner, Lisa and her team.

“Very Nice Cafe in Redcliffe Quay area”
Reviewed 24 March 2013

We had already had lunch, so after walking around St. John's we stopped here for a drink. The area is nice and clean and the menu looked good. There were locals and tourists there who all seemed to be having a good time. Wish we could have eaten there. Another time!

“The waitresses are great”
Reviewed 2 March 2013

Stopped in her twice while the girls wer shopping. It's very nice. Always a light breeze the beer is cold, service is quick, and the food is also great.
I have a burger and fries which did the trick one afternoon and when we asked any questions the girls giggled and provided answers, directions, etc. When the ships come into St. John's these girls really earn thier keep as they need to explain & converse with people form all nations with different skill levels of the English language and are very patient and always have a smile with the service

“Nice stop for lunch”
Reviewed 25 February 2013

I decided while wandering through town (St. John's) one day to try Cafe Napoleon for a bite to eat. They were transitioning from their breakfast to lunch menu but still allowed me to order off their breakfast menu as that is what I was in the mood for. The food came in a timely manner and was satisfactory though the bacon was tasty yet extra salty for some reason. I tried the apple pie for dessert and was a bit disappointed. It lacked the flavour and spices I expect in apple pie and I did not taste much apple either. The custard was good and all in all the dessert was okay but I would probably just stick to food next time. Service was very good from the waitress and the apparent owner. Not sure if this place is open for dinner but will return again for another lunch in a relaxing environment.
