Welcome to nicole’s café, a destination for outstanding regional food on Fogo Island, Newfoundland.

Located in Joe Batt’s Arm, Nicole’s has become a “must-do” for residents and visitors alike. At Nicole’s Café we are passionate about Fogo Island. Our goal is to showcase and share our food traditions and culture. Drawing from our food traditions and using local ingredients, Nicole’s menus bring together the best of  our land and our ocean in a creative mix of modern and traditional recipes.

We demonstrate that the creativity of our ancestors still runs in our veins as we add our contemporary interpretations alongside the old ways.  We enjoy the inventiveness of “finding new ways with old things”. And we enjoy the depth and scope these new ways bring to our food heritage.


“I found a place on Fogo Island in Newfoundland where I had the most incredible meal — Nicole’s Cafe. The place is a delight, local dishes prepared to perfection and a warm and inviting atmosphere with lots of character.”

Julie deRouche, Washington USA

“On a recent trip to Fogo Island I discovered Nicole’s Café. The food, the service, the atmosphere – all outstanding! I can’t wait to return to the island to sample the menu yet again.”

Krista Penney, St. John’s, NL

“Nicole’s serves authentic Newfoundland food but with international gusto. The cod, the greens, the salt beef – they all come to life in a comfortably familiar, yet surprisingly uncommon sort of way.”

Gina Pecore, CBS, NL
