We ate two breakfasts here recently and enjoyed both. The food was very good large portions and the staff soooo friendly .. We had fresh hot coffee and flavoured creamers .. A nice touch this restaurant is attached to an awesome best western and close to all things within walking distance really enjoyed it

I stayed in Quesnel for two weeks for work and had Begbie's every other day. The food was always good, and there were plenty of good options to choose from. The staff was nice and service was great!
