So so service and food

While traveling in the area, we ate here several times because they had free wifi, which is a bit of a big deal in that area. The food was generally served incorrectly, and they were ridiculous about the breakfast deadline. Staff was pretty nice but don't go expecting quality service.

TIA"S doesn't look like a wonderful eatery, but the food belies it's location! It was really and interesting place to go and it's a good thing I was warned about the amount of food you'd get for your money! I split a wonderful Mexican dish that was JUST right in the hot department ( though I added some Tabasco cause... More

Our first stop as we arrived in Port McNeill, we had a good lunch and free wifi. The food was good, the staff friendly, service prompt and parking was easy. It is very popular with the residents of Port McNeill and is right in the centre of town.

We met with a friend for lunch a few weeks ago and it was great. Two of us had the chicken quesadilla with onion rings on the side and were amazed at the huge portions. The quesadilla would have been enough on it's own but I can't resist deep fried onion rings and they were stacked on the side. Our... More

Visited for coffee while waiting to check in for our whale watching tour. Young man who served us provided no greeting, just stared at us until we ordered. After ordering he simply walked away and started making coffee with no comment that it was table service and we could seat ourselves and pay after. Coffee average, hot chocolate was a... More

Stopped in for lunch as it seemed to be a popular local spot. Orderd the special, bean and bacon soup with bannock. Bannock was very good...but the soup was terrible. Basically it was boiled bacon to make the broth ..with the strips of heavily fatted, little meat bacon left in...and one, only one, small red kidney bean to be found.... More

I was here while waiting for the bus back to Victoria. The staff were wonderful, and I had a great breakfast! They were friendly about me taking my time, and happy to wrap up a sandwich to go before I left. I'd visit it when you're in town.

Loved this little place. Waitresses are nice and it is a charming place to go for a casual dinner. They make great Mexican food.
