Local hang out

On a busy summer day there are few places on Salt Spring to go to get away from the tourist and Dagwood's is one of them. It offer basic breakfast and lunch at reasonable prices. Plenty of parking make this a local fav hang out. If you need to hire a trades person it's a great place to find... read more

Exactly what it looks like - a functional diner to get a cheap, filling breakfast. Normally I'd include "fast" but, you know, it's the island, fast isn't happening. I've only had breakfast, which is good - extra points for American-style hash browns.

Not bad, average, ok. Seafood chowder and Dagwood poutine was mine. Chowder had floury taste, not seasoned much. Same with the poutine. Since it had the Dagwood name, I was expecting something special. Ate 1/4, and left the rest. My sons burger was above average so maybe that's the trick.

We stopped here for breakfast because it opened before most of the other restaurants on Salt Spring Island. Typical diner food but place was clean and staff was friendly.

We had breakfast and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Nothing fancy but that's what we expect from a diner. Friendly efficient service.

now it doesn't look like much when you see it. We actually stepped in to take a peek at the menu and decided it was decent prices and good menu list! OMG, the food was so good!! Homemade! Everything we had (4 of us) were very happy with our meals. I had a seafood dish, my friends had fish and... More

Classic dinner fare. I had the Seafood Chowder - it was excellent. Others in my group had the BLT, the Basic Burger, & Eggs Benny (breakfast available until 3:00pm) and everyone was happy. All items were under $11. The decor is basic, but we all left well fed and with money in our pockets. We were there at 11:30am on... More

This is my idea of the perfect little diner. THe food is fabulous, the staff are very friendly and welcoming. The service is quick. It's a fun casual atmosphere. Great place to go for a traditional breakfast for a great price!

Away from the crowds - but can still pack them in! Wholesome diner food - great burgers and decent prices. Excellent for all ages - I would definitely come back again. Hint - get the half order fries and half salad with your meal - nice to get your veggies in!

OK this diner is not fancy, but the food is high quality and priced right. I visit Salt Spring on an annual basis and this is one of my standard lunch stops. Some times you just don't want to pay $15 for a filling lunch. Expect to be seated next to the local tradesman, it's not fancy just good food... More
