The Old Crow is a good spot for lunch or dinner, with a beer or a glass of wine. Good food, not overly expensive. It's an easy place to be. You don't have to dress up. The atmosphere is friendly an informal. Kid friendly.

We were looking forward to a nice Sunday breakfast out and we tried The Old Crow Cafe, as we had been there once before, a couple of years ago when it was wonderful. We ordered the scrambled eggs and bacon. The eggs were dry and tasteless, the bacon skimpy and overcooked, and the potatoes average at best. No orange juice... More

We were attracted to the Old Crow Cafe because it seemed like a place where they made a lot of their food from scratch. We were not disappointed. Our lunch was fresh tasting, delicious and filling. We feel we got good value for what we paid. We enjoyed eating outside on a sunny afternoon and watching people come and go.... More

Truly I am sorry that your service sucked. It is such a big part of a dining experience. We do try hard and I feel my staff makes the effort to go that extra mile, but unfortunately it sometimes falls short. Thanks for taking the time to review the Crow and for your feedback. I am very happy that you... More

we had lunch there yesterday, and sat outside on the lovely patio, people watching and enjoying the amazing weather. my husband ordered a veggie burger, but within a very short time, the server came to our table to let us know they were out of them. We changed the order to a hamburger, which arrived shortly afterwards but was still... More

Really tasty Mexican-inspired dishes here at a very reasonable price. The burrito is massive. I really liked the tomatillo sauce on the enchilada.

I had the soft tacos, they were great, with the crunchy onions on top. Beware of the hot sauce it is really hot, mad my eyes water. So if you like it hot, pour it on. I have their sandwiches also, & they are very delicious. I would suggest this place for some great food when you visit Gabriola Island.

On a rainy day this is the place to raise your spirits -- it's all bright walls and cosy atmosphere inside -- and on a sunny day you can sit outside on the deck. Great coffee, great service, great place to hang out.

I had the chicken tacos with corn tortillas and they were so delicious! The only thing I didn't like, is that they weren't open the next day (Sunday) when I went back for more!

My husband and I eat at The Old Crow at least once a week (I Love Taco Tuesday!). The burgers and the breakfast bowl are two of the best meals on the island, the tacos are amazing (fresh and tasty), and the homemade sauces are to die for. You Gotta Eat Here!
