Butter lettuce & beet salad, and halibut and fries were both great to share. Prices were fair and food was delicious.

The only thing that stopped it getting five stars was the staff was a little too laid back and could have been a bit more attentive and the food seemed to take a far while - it was lunch time. Having said that I would go back in a heartbeat. We had the burger and the veggie burger. The fries... More

We shared a 2 piece halibut and a bowl of chowder here for lunch. Portions were very large, and it was fantastic! We have been sampling chowders at most places over the last few weeks, and fish and chips every few days and we have to say, this was the best for both yet. Highly recommend. Coffee here is very...

opens at 8 a.m. with a superb breakfast menu - something for everyone and great coffee. Steady stream of takeout coffee buyers. Quick friendly service especially if you are starting the Trail shortly after. Best breakfast in Port Renfrew!

We had breakfast here on our last morning before leaving Port Renfrew. We loved it. I had a gluten free breakfast sandwich that was absolutely delicious and it was such a pleasure to go somewhere and have zero problem getting gluten free food. Good service as well.

Simple menu but prepared very well. We ate here as we had already eaten at the pub the night before. Little to choose from between them in terms of quality. A good option if you're in the area.

Food was great an the service was very friendly. Good knowledge on gluten free even if the gluten free menu was very limited (last time we were there anyway. I put Sept 2015 as our visit as that is the earliest it had but it was actually earlier than that. Summer of 2015. It was a great pace to eat.... More
