Amazing food

We stopped on our way from the ferry to the campground. The food was amazing and the staff was very good at helping us decide what to order.

Have now stopped here twice and the service is so horribly and painfully slow. If there was another decent place to eat this place would be out of business. The ONLY saving grace is the food is actually quite tasty. Unique food choices. My order was messed up but after waiting close to an hour for soup and a salad... More

My husband and I stayed in the area during August long weekend. We accidentally found this place and were impressed by the quality of the food. It was not a simple american pub food that one could expect at the small towns and villages. It was a sophisticated fusion tapas with excellent sauces. Homemade lemonades are worth to mention as...

This little community is full of 'Artisan' shops and this little jewel should be one of them! Wonderful gourmet food with many unusual sauces. Small portions so it's easy to try several of the items listed on the menu. We had dinner one evening and came back the next day to enjoy the lunch menu. Our favorite for dinner was... More

We have been coming to the area for the past ten years for holidays and we discovered the Cafe a few years ago. We love the outdoor patio, the food and the waitresses have been great. The only problems have been with the owner. I continue to be astounded by his lack of attentiveness each time we visit. On two... More

This restaurant was highly recommended by our B&B owner so we decided to check it out. We sat in the relaxed outside area. Everything on the menu looked so interesting and delicious, we wished we could have tried more! We had the pork tenderloin francaise (has goat cheese & balsamic), tango prawns, and kale and orange salad. The flavours of... More

Great place for coffee and lunch! It has such a nice, relaxing garden, the staff are lovely and the food is excellent. I go here for a delicious London Fog every chance I get!

Again like others we stumbled upon this cafe. I had a falafel with all the extras and it was absolutely delicious. Richard had a croissant with ham and again it was full of salad and he was amazed with the quality of his food. While in Crawford Bay we also visited the artisans galleries etc and that was beyond our... More

Beautiful spot in the summer - outdoor patio with an eclectic mix of tapas. We always find the food to be delicious and homemade. The desserts are amazing. The service is a bit relaxed, but that's the atmosphere around the Kootenays. Right on the main strip of Crawford Bay so you can browse the nearby shops afterwards.
