Continuing on with my St. John's tribute posts, I have a new one which includes some great restaurants to try. Here are the first three:
1. Breakfast: Bagel Cafe.
It's a quaint little restaurant on Duckworth Street, they have all kinds of breakfast and lunch foods but of course with bagels instead of regular toast. They even have some local favorites such as fish & brewis and fish cakes (don't worry there are lots of options without fish.) Apparently they serve dinner too, but I've never been. They dishes are delicious, and huge. Sometimes service can be a little slow but it's kind of part of it's charm.
Some other great breakfast options in town are the Governor's Pub or the Classic Cafe.

2. Sushi: Sun Sushi
There are not very many options in town for sushi. In fact, I think there are only three good options to be honest. My pick is Sun Sushi purely for the options and price. One option is Basho Lounge which has better sushi then both other places but the prices are very steep. It's not the place you can go for a casual lunch with friends. Asian Taste and Sun Sushi are the same in the quality of sushi, but Asian Taste specialize in more then just sushi. If you're going with a few people who don't all necessarily want sushi then it's great, but if you are going purely for sushi then you won't have as many options as Sun Sushi. All three on Duckworth Street and you won't be sorry where ever you go.

I love this spot. It's cozy and delicious. They brew their own beer right in the restaurant. There are four choice, my favorite is the pale ale. Besides the beer, the food is so good! It's like refined pub food. They have an excellent seafood chowder and their pizza's are grilled in a wood burning stove. But their burgers... their burgers! They have more then a few options, including a lamb burger and a salmon Asian burger. My favorites are the Yellow Belly Burger which has pulled short rib, tomato jam, blue cheese, caramelized onions all over a juicy beef patty and the Surf and Turf burger, beef patty stuffed with lobster meat and topped with Bearnaise sauce. They have excellent side dishes, I love their salad, it's greens with pecans and dried cranberries. They also have yummy fries and sweet potato fries. It's located on Water Street.
Some other great pub place are Nautical Nellie's.
