Like waking a hibernating bear, waking a dormant stomach causes violent growls that can only be silenced by fresh fish and 20 minutes of gentle patting. Ward off vicious appetites with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of local fare during dinner at Topsail Breeze Café & Tavern in Conception Bay South.
Resting on its laurels above picturesque Conception Bay since the 1880s, Topsail Breeze Café & Tavern rewards appetites with classic Newfoundland specialties and local fare. Peruse the menu, then mouth-catch the cod au gratin, locally caught cod with creamy cheese sauce ($9.99), or belly-trap a pound of spice-rubbed wings slathered in sauces ranging from mild to "suicide." Guests can also fill up on classic dishes such as the handmade hamburger ($10.99), the homemade spaghetti with garlic bread ($10.99), or a plate of locally farmed organic white- or dark-meat chicken, creamy mashed potatoes or home fries, and vegetables ($13.99). Designated a heritage site by the town of Conception Bay South, the interior's hardwood floors, red walls, and homey dining sets further evoke a feeling of tradition, like naming all of your children "Junior."
