During a three-week trip through the Maritime Provinces my wife and I stayed three nights at the Rosedale Manor, the B&B associated with Philip's Cafe. Our breakfast was at the restaurant, a short walk up the road. The atmosphere was cheery, the service and conversation hospitable and the food excellent. If ever there was a "destination" breakfast restaurant Philip's fills the bill. I had a slice of quiche that resembled a soufflé along with fruit, lovely baked goods and the best coffee I had during our entire trip.
The second day we ordered box lunchs to take on our excursion to a Northern Gannet rookery (we are birders and spend most days outdoors). We had hearty sandwiches with fruit and just-baked cookies. As we sat on a bench in the middle of a sheep's pasture overlooking the sea I thought how very lucky we were to have met Philip and Linda, owners of the B&B, cafe combination.
If ever we return to Newfoundland, I'll include a visit to Philip's on our itinerary.
