Homegrown in Newfoundland

front-view-bonavista-social-clubWe had an amazing meal at the Bonavista Social Club in tiny Upper Amherst Cove, Newfoundland on the very last day they were open for the 2016 season. EVERYTHING they serve is homegrown.

Katie's Dad whose woodworking shop is next to the restaurant made the wooden plates our food was served on.Wild partridge berries had been picked nearby to make our dessert- a partridge berry bread pudding. Eggs and milk from the restaurant’s chickens and cow were in the homemade icecream.
