Newcomer to St. John's

I've just moved to St. John's and want people's best picks for shopping and eating.

Here's what we've done so far:

Fish & Chips: Have compared Ches's, Duke of Duckworth and Leo's and have settled on Leo's as our favourite.

Love Piatto for pizza.

Good meal at Chinched.

Great coffee at Rocket Cafe.

Georgetown bakery - this will be the death of me - great bread.

Have been to Belbin's and joined the cheese club.

Have had fish from the fish depot ranging from o.k. to fantastic.

We've been here for 2 Saturdays, so have made 2 trips to the farmers' market. This will be a routine, for sure. I also special-ordered 2 pounds of basil from Lester's market in Mt. Pearl and did a huge pesto production yesterday. The basil was fabulous.

Where is the best place for groceries? Which store has the broadest selection, including ethnic stuff?

I have a kid with an allergy to nuts - any tips for safe restaurants would be great, too. We love the mini donut stand at the market and my son looks forward to it all week.

We're expecting a number of sets of visitors from Ontario over the next few months. Any tips for where to take them? Raymond's looks great, but soooo expensive. Hopefully Mallard Cottage will open and we can try that. Also Bacalao looks interesting.

Loving it here so far. I look forward to your tips.
