St. John's Newfoundland Statues

If you’ve been following my blog for a while now, then you know I love taking part in {🚶 Historical Walking Food Tours}, when traveling.

On our latest travels to Newfoundland, we had the pleasure of joining NL Food Tours in the 🍁 City of St. John’s, Newfoundland.

An excellent walking food sampling tour in the historical district of 🍁 St. John’s.

Not only do you get to sample some of the local dishes in Newfoundland but at the same time, learn about the history of {St. John’s} as you walk along its historical streets.


These types of tours are not only 🍃 Eco-Friendly, but a great way to discover some local favorite eateries as well.

It’s also a wonderful way to enjoy the outdoors, to discover and learn more about the city you are visiting and it’s past.

What To Expect On Your Food Tour

Newfoundland Chocolate Company


Our guide and owner of NL Food Tours (Christa) met us at a pre-arranged meeting point to begin our tour. It was a full group on this tour which is always great to see.

We always like meeting other travelers who also enjoy these types of tours as well.


Newfoundland Chocolate Company St. John's NFLD


Our first stop was to the very popular 🍫 Newfoundland Chocolate Company. A great way to start the tour by sampling some fine chocolate to energize ourselves for the walk ahead!

This gave us an opportunity to sample some of their excellent 🍫 chocolates. We were also given time to purchase some of their products in the store if we wished to do so.

Jelly Bean Row Houses St. John's


We were then on our way stopping at some historical sites and statues placed in city, with Christa explaining in detail the history behind each stop we made along the way.

We certainly lucked out with a beautiful ☀ sunny day in late September day in St. John’s.

A perfect day to be outside in the sunshine and enjoying the sites of the city!


St. John's Harbour


It was time for our next stop located in {Old St. John’s}, for some authentic Newfoundland cuisine. Christa led us down the picturesque waterfront walkway for an opportunity for 📸 pictures of renowned St. John’s harbour.


Gypsy Tea Room St. John's


Our next stop was to a refurbished historic building, now a restaurant and 🍷 wine house. We sampled 2 delicious local favorite Newfoundland dishes!

For those wishing to purchase additional 🍷 wine or local 🍺craft beer, Christa allowed for plenty of time to sit back, relax and enjoy these samples.

It also gave us all a chance to get to know our fellow companions as well.

Visiting Local Favorite Eateries

It was time to continue our journey to possibly St. John’s most favorite hidden 💎 gem, the 🚀 Rocket Bakery and Restaurant. Judging by the huge crowd inside and out, I knew we must be in for a real treat!


Rocket Bakery Fish Cakes St. John's


Christa had us sample their signature {Fish Cakes}, which were absolutely amazing. Perhaps the best we have ever sampled anywhere on our travels!


Rocket Bakery St. John's Newfoundland


The bakery items looked outstanding as well, giving us an opportunity to purchase some fresh baked 🍪 cookies for later.

It wasn’t hard to see why this is a favorite among locals after sampling their fish cakes and bakery selections!


Boca Tapas Bar St. John's


We then continued our way down the revitalized and now very attractive historical street of St. John’s, to our next and final stop on the tour. It was time to sample some 🍷 local wine and Tapas.


Bocas Tapas Bar St. John's Specialty Dish


This was a perfect way to finish off the tour. To sit back and enjoy our final sampling, along with a taste of red or white wine.

From here, we were able to continue on our way at the conclusion of the tour, at our leisure.

Update March 2023


It appears at this time NL Food Tours website is down. Unfortunately this is in all likelihood due to the Covid-19 pandemic. I will continue to monitor and update if/when they resume business once again.


Guided food tours are a great way to see the sites and sample some local food, when visiting new destinations around the world!
