Lighthouse Picnics

The Food

The Lighthouse Ladies make all the food fresh at the lighthouse each day – the molasses oatmeal bread, the orzo & fresh mint salad, the freshly squeezed lemonade and the list goes on and on.

The minute you walk through the door you’ll be greeted with the sweet smell of fresh baked scones, chocolate treats and fresh berry jams simmering away.

We care about the quality of our ingredients.  Local and organic products are used as much as possible.  Our sprouts, fresh herbs, greens and edible flowers come from the Organic Farm in Portugal Cove.  Newfoundland is known for its seafood, so of course we use cold water shrimp, salmon and crab from our waters.

Fair trade coffees, it goes without saying...  We love our tea in Newfoundland and we are delighted to offer a large selection of specialty teas – from dandelion, to a special blend of Earl Grey/Green blend that has its origins ‘steeped’ in Newfoundland history (Just ask us as we’re pouring it for you…)

Examples of items from our Lighthouse Picnic menu:

  • Chutney-glazed ham & brie on lighthouse bread
  • Warm gingerbread & custard sauce
  • Crab cakes (in season)
  • Orange crumble square
  • Curried chicken with mango and sliced almonds on lighthouse bread
  • Peach shortcakes
  • Orzo, pepper and fresh mint salad
  • Strawberry Rhubarb fools
  • Cranberry scones

We offer a children’s menu as well.



Thank you for another wonderful season at the lighthouse. See you in May 2019!
