Was not sure to make of the menu at first, then it clicked, The menu is like an atlas, with cuisines from a variety of cultures that you can mix and match. Mexico, Japan, and many other places meet Canada. Good BC wine list.

Always terrific food! Burritos are fantastic I've been having them regularly for 5 years or more. Then I decided to try the enchilada - hello there! Great stuff - and now with the addition of house smoked pulled pork as a filling option I'm not sure there is any reason to even look at the rest of the menu.

Large serving, nice setting and pleasant staff. Staff was very accommodating to answer any of my questions about the area since it was my first time. Would definitely come back when in the area again.

Nice ambiance. A decent selection of vegan options. Our 13 and 11 year Olds both also found something.

Our golf game got rained out and we decided on a leisurely breakfast instead. The food was terrific and the fruit was great as well as out of the ordinary. Definitely the place for breakfast
