It was Sunday at 11:30 am and was very busy. The table was all full but we were able to get seated within 10 minutes, that took us to 11:40am. Then waited another 10 minutes for a wait staff to get our orders. There were only two waitresses for the entire place that was full. Once the orders were placed,... More

Stopped in on the way to Tofino for brunch. There were four in our party and all gave a good review of the food. My husband and I had eggs benny - just delicious! Busy bistro with friendly staff. Highly recommend. We stopped in again on trip back from Tofino and again had delicious lunch.

I have been here many times, and keep going back for their Seafood Bennie! Two poached eggs on crab cakes. Divine! My husband always has their Beaver Creek Bennie, which is two poached eggs on pulled pork. All is smothered with Hollandaise sauce, of course. Large portions, and consistently good. Great service! Friendly staff.

We have driven by numerous times enroute to a Tofino getaway. I was looking for a White Spot restaurant when my wife said let's give this on a try. A bright friendly and clean place. I ordered the smoked meat sandwich on rye and on first bite my taste buds were doing the happy dance. The cheese and bacon soup... More

I had the special : Ling Cod fish and chips, the fish was very good, light batter not greasy. The batter was thin and crispy. the fries were good just like English fish and chips. My husband and I just moved here and we will definitely go back and try another dish.

Have the eggs benny that start with a crab cake instead of english muffin and then a beautiful placed egg, crab and shrimp topping and home made hollandaise sauce, met a couple regulars who come at least once a week for this treat. I loved the fish taco's. A nicely sized portion of fresh perfectly cooked cod and not to... More

Very creative place to eat. Get the full order of crab cakes, having the half order would've normally been plenty, but it was too yummy -- I wanted more!
