One thought on “Praise from Fodor’s

  1. We spent many happy hours at Java Jack’s lovely restaurant. The food is absolutely wonderful,fresh, perfectly cooked and beautifully presented. Whether it is a local dish or international cuisine they seem to get it just right. You won’t get deep fried food here! There is also a great little coffee bar serving freshly brewed Fair Trade coffee and locally baked cookies and pastries. They also do great sandwiches and wraps and will happily pack a lunch for you. We took our lunch from there to go on the boat tour at Western Brook Pond. What a treat!
