As with pretty much everything we do at Two Whales, we have built it ourselves, and, like the salad greens we grow in our own greenhouse, it is organic and will grow with time. And just before we move to shorter Fall hours I have worked out why those of you with SmartPhones have been getting the wrong opening times….. sorry! Now that the busy summer is behind us we can look forward to shorter, quiet days at the coffee shop with time to relax and talk to our customers.
Two Whales is a small, family run, independent coffee shop and restaurant overlooking Robin Hood Bay in the small township of Port Rexton on the Bonavista Peninsula. This is our 6th season in business and our reputation grows every year. According to many of our customers we serve the best espresso coffees on the island – we feel it is a combination of great beans (from Jumping Bean in St John’s), our espresso machine, skill, our well water and a bit of Two Whales magic! We serve a range of premium teas and soft drinks including our special homemade organic lemonade. Part of our philosophy is that we do not serve anything that we will not eat or drink ourselves.
We serve delicious, healthy vegetarian food and yummy cakes which you can find out about in our menu. Over the years many customers have asked us whether they can have one of our soup or cake recipes so we are publishing a recipe of the month.
We use as much organic and/or locally sourced ingredients as we can, make and bake just about everything ourselves in our own kitchen and take great care in what we do. We are a happy band of ten operating Two Whales during the summer season. Look at the about us section or read our mission statement in our downloads section to learn more.
Finally, we offer our wall space for one artist (or group of artists) a month to curate a show of their work – see art shows for details. Also look at the up and coming music concerts we put on at Two Whales.
