Great breakfast grub!

Always love Eggs Benedicts with REAL hollindase sauce! They are closed on Mondays & Tuesday's other wise I would have loved to eat there for dinner.

Hard to see why this restaurant gets all the great reviews. Our meal was distinctly average. My starter was not as described. If you order a mixed leaves salad you don't expect tomato, carrot and cucumber. For the main courses the halibut and the veal were sort of OK, certainly not wonderful, and the selection of vegetables was odd. All... More

We had a delicious breakfast at Matterson House. They were very busy, but the service was quick and the food was good! My husband enjoyed his eggs benny and I gobbled up my French Toast. Great casual atmosphere.

the food was amazing - best smoked salmon I've had. The staff were very attentive and friendly. Wish I had left room for dessert - they all looked so good.

Very cute little spot with nice gardens in the back. Went for breakfast and the eggs Benny were decent, but nothing special in my opinion. Service was quite slow, wouldn't recommend if you're in a rush!

Nice, historic old house. Walked up on a Wednesday night at 7:45 and it was full with several waiting couples. Recommend reservations! We were told it may be 20 minutes, but were seated in ten. It was nice to see the number of locals with reserved spots and we were lucky to get one of the two front porch tables.... More

One of the best breakfasts I had in nine days in Ucluelet. Ate on the front porch which was lovely and returned for dinner on the back patio that evening. While dinner was good...I had shrimp that were delicious....breakfast was almost divine. Homemade thick wheat read toast was remarkable and they served thick thick crisp bacon that almost made me...

Visited here in July of 2015 and what an amazing surprise. From the outside it does not look like much. A little house that has been converted to a restaurant. Don't let looks fool you - the food was hot, plentiful and delicious. Very good value for the money and the service was excellent. Extremely pleased :)

Excellent flavours and textures in a very busy restaurant. Good value for a very tasty meal. Good service despite the rush.
