Get There Early and You Will See Why it Tastes so Good

This little "Hole in the Wall" coffee shop is well worth a visit. Renee kicks open the doors at 5am to invite in the first customers of the day. While she listens to the pearls of wisdom from the local "know it alls" she kneads the dough for the days cinnamon buns, bread and pies. With everything... read more

You can't beat this place. Simple but tasty. i love the thick-sliced homemade bread, plentiful meat and eggs done as requested. SO good! Had to return the same day for some homemade rhubarb pie. It's worth the drive.

Undeniably the best breakfast and lunch place in town! Despite others trying to amp up our town and failing,,,,Renee's has been here forever. Our favorite place for sure!!!

Renee's is a funky little place - make sure you have cash, as they don't accept cc's or debit cards and be prepared for the "questionable" decor and washrooms (clean, but in need of renovation). The homemade sourdough bread is to die for, and breakfasts are tasty and served quickly. And if you're tempted to buy a cheesecake to take... More

We stopped by for a lateish lunch, soup and sandwich. The homemade bread was fantastic but the filling wasn't very good and the chowder was more a chunky soup. It was all edible but I was expecting better. I didn't have any pie, however, my travel buddy did and he enjoyed it. Service was good.

We are regulars for breakfast-homemade bread-yummy! Denvers and French toast-excellent! Make sure you stop there. Renee also makes the best desserts-cheesecake and pies. You will be back for more!

My daughter and I stopped here for lunch while in Ladysmith. The sandwiches were good. What we enjoyed the most was how the locals go here for lunch and when they tell Renee, "I'll have my usual", she knows exactly what they want. Then the customers there proceed to talk away to each other without even looking at each other.... More

WOW!!!! We had our reservations about going in because the outside needs some work but the food was fantastic. Had the chicken vegetable soup and the clubhouse sandwich. The soup was delicious and the sandwich...made with homemade bread was one of the best sandwiches I have ever had. Cant wait to go back and try the breakfast.
