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!

The enchilada was good. The guacamole was tasty. Service is slow though you order at the counter. I really like the choices and the nutritious nature of the selections.

Had the House Dip that turned out to be gluten free and vegan. It tasted delicious and very cheesy ( no there was no cheese )! So yumm! Cafe has a good variety of dishes to choose from. Good coffee. Comfy indoor seating as well as a very sunny patio. The staff were very helpful and friendly!

I had lunch at The Old Crow on a Saturday of the May long weekend. Because of the holidays, I suspected it might be busy, so I waited until 2 pm, after the dinner rush. The place was still packed!
