Two Whales

Two Whales is a small, independent coffee shop and restaurant overlooking Robin Hood Bay in the small township of Port Rexton on the Bonavista Peninsula. This is our 14th season in business and our reputation grows every year. We serve delicious, healthy vegetarian and vegan food and yummy cakes. 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 also grow a wide variety of organic salads, vegetables, herbs and flowers in our own gardens.

Opening times We are now open 4 days a week, 10am–4pm, closed Tuesdays,Wednesdays and Thursdays.

Seating We have seating for 14 inside; plenty of space on our new sheltered deck and in our beer garden and have four sheltered picnic pods for another 24 persons if the weather is wet.

Accessibility We have a new wheelchair/accessibility ramp for easy access to the coffee shop.


Business opportunity

After 15 years of setting up, developing and nurturing Two Whales Coffee Shop Sue and David are retiring at the end of this season (30th October). This business has given us so much and now, with gratitude, it is time for us to retire.

Our amazing and talented staff are ready for next season and all the jam and chutney is made for next year too!

We hope to find someone with enthusiasm and fresh ideas to carry the legacy forward. If you think this might be you go to our business opportunity page.
