The Red Ochre Cafe & Gift Shop is a new business venture that is conveniently located on the main highway in the historic community of Ochre Pit Cove, Conception Bay North. Ochre Pit Cove's geological findings show an abundance red ochre rock that can be dated back to when the Beothuk's first arrived on its shore lines. They would prepare the red ochre by crushing the rock into animal grease to paint their faces and entire bodies as well as their clothes, weapons, utensils and canoes. This was considered to be a mark of tribal identity and used for initial initiation ceremonies. Hence the name Red Ochre Cafe & Gift Shop was born.
Located in beautiful picturesque Ochre Pit Cove is the Red Ochre Cafe, a happening Restaurant where the locals go to dine, drink, and socialize. Our menu features dishes assembled from the freshest ingredients, sure to bring bold and inspiring flavor into your life. Join us today.
