After perfecting their craft over more than a decade, the chefs of Fireside Catering established Fireside Eatery inside Hotel Mount Pearl. Here, they whip up a menu of comforting breakfast and lunch fare such as omelettes, pancakes, burgers, and cod dinners, as well as regional favourites including breakfast sandwiches concocted from deep-fried touton, egg, and bologna or chicken paninis drizzled with traditional Newfoundland dressing. They sling quick lunches during the workweek to satisfy busy business types, and they serve breakfast all day on Saturday and Sunday, holding diners to a strict dress code of flannel pajamas and pillow-creased faces.
In her own words, Happy Hummus Hut founder Hlynn Kenny constantly tells her friends, "Go on, taste this!" Inside Hlynn’s restaurant, "this" could refer to any number of fresh, homemade edibles, from raw vegan salads to wraps filled with vegetables and homemade dressings. Every day, the Happy Hummus staff crafts a spread of the day—for example, roasted eggplant blended into hummus with fresh rosemary—to accompany other menu items such as rice-paper rolls and infused waters. Hlynn also takes care to maintain several gluten-free options, warding off the Gingerbread Man’s constant attempts to barge through the drainpipe.
From morning to evening, the aroma of cappuccino and sweet mocha fill the air at Christopher’s Cafe, where owner Christopher Rodden fills mugs with eye-opening brews and bellies with hot and cold sandwiches. Breakfast pairs steaming cups of coffee with meals of eggs, bacon, and toast or tea with fluffy muffins, and lunchtime sates appetites with a lineup of soups, sandwiches, and poutine. To accommodate events ranging from corporate lunches and family gatherings to ceremonial T. rex feedings, catering offerings include trays of sandwiches, vegetables, and buffalo wings.
When picking a restaurant, it usually comes down to what you’re in the mood for—be it Mexican, Thai, or Italian. That decision comes easy at Around the World, where the menu encompasses a wide variety of global dishes. Whether craving a bison burger topped with crisp back bacon or a creamy chicken curry served over basmati rice, diners can appease their appetites at this warm, mustard-hued eatery.
