We thoroughly enjoyed this outing. It was an incredibly beautiful, sunny day. We walked from the lower parking lot to the lighthouse. The first portion of the walk was paved, and after the upper parking lot it was a rocky trail (this may be difficult...More

Food was tasty and fresh. The bread was like none that I had ever tasted! Next time I would probably order one picnic meal to share, and an extra lemonade. Nice day by the ocean.

Have a great lunch on the grounds of a lighthouse, watch the fog roll in, walk the grounds, and take in the scenery of this really cool spot. Great food, and vegetarian options to boot.

Took my wife here on her birthday for a picnic lunch, and am so glad I did. The food is very good and fresh. And the scenery is breathtaking. Very quiet, peaceful and beautiful. We certainly don’t get anything like this in Toronto!

It is not possible to drive to the lighthouse. For gluten free options it would be best to go to the Tea Room located close to Witless Bay on the main road. The views out to the islands are lovely!
