The countdown is over.

Feb. 9 marked the open­ing day of the 2017 sea­son for Ber­wick’s beloved Jonny’s Cook­house and Ice Cream Shop.

Edith Wheaton was among the reg­u­lars who could hardly wait to get in line for her favourite Jonny’s dish.

“I travel all the time to come out here,” the Kentville res­i­dent said dur­ing an in­ter­view at the busy cook­house.

“The food is good, it’s hot all the time and there’s noth­ing like good New­found­land food.”

Jonny’s open sea­son has con­tin­u­ally been ex­tended due to the steady in­crease in de­mand the busi­ness has en­joyed since it opened.

Rick Vid­ito, for one, is thrilled to see the cook­house’s win­ter clo­sures be­com­ing shorter and shorter. The Ber­wick res­i­dent took his wife and two-year-old grand­son to Jonny’s for lunch min­utes af­ter it opened Feb. 9.

Some long for the sig­na­ture burg­ers or loaded pou­tines, but Vid­ito craves the fish and chips.

“The food is ex­cel­lent,” he said. “I’ve tried a lot of places but… you can’t beat this place.”
