Niger Reef Tea House

Niger Reef Tea House Review

Overlooking the bay, with seating inside or out on a rustic deck, this 1926 former meeting house (of the Imperial Order of the Daughters of the Empire) is where red-seal chef David Peterson works his magic with locally sourced ingredients. Everything is top quality, from the simple but expertly produced lunchtime options—seafood chowder, sandwiches, frittata—to imaginative offerings on the select dinner menu. These might include traditional cedar-planked salmon with a ginger glaze, or lamb shanks braised in tomato-and-red-wine sauce. The splendid restored mural was painted by American artist Lucille Douglass (1877–1935). Arrive early for dinner; the Tea House closes at 8 pm, and as it's very popular with locals, reservations are recommended.
