The Hollow Log café is a bit out of the way , but worth the drive for the pie alone. All the pies are homemade and the blueberries were picked fresh, can't get any better than that.

The Hollow Log Cafe is clean and open. The logging industry memorabilia around the walls is a neat curiosity. The instruments are on stand by for an adhoc performance which apparently happens often on summer evenings. The food was excellent quality and the service very good. We had the fish and chips and the Club sandwich. I've judged many eateries... More

It's family owned and super friendly. It's always a great place to grab a bite to eat. Their food is incredible and the service never fails. The prices are great for the serving sizes you receive.

We make a point of stopping here when travelling the #8 Highway and once again, they served up an excellent lunch at a very affordable price! My wife had the BBQ Pulled Pork Panini and I had the Thundercrunch Burger with a small side of fries. We only had ice water but finished with pie and coffee, all for around... More

Too small, too slow in serving, not enough staff. Disappointing since it is the only restaurant in town.

We stopped for dessert and coffee. Service was friendly and pleasant. Atmosphere has pieces of local history and feels very community based. The cheesecake was alright. The kids were quite happy about the ice cream and milkshakes. She put a fresh pot of coffee on for me.

What a wonderful little restaurant along highway 8. We found ourselves in a predicament last night when trying to find something to eat. We were staying in Keji National Park and we were going to eat at a restaurant close by as we could not have a fire in the park due to wild fires in the area. The restaurant... More
