Great menu

Looks like a simple family run restaurant. The decor could use some sprucing up. Even though they forgot to get our order out to us for about an hour (I'm sure this is rare), the menu and the food was amazing! I would highly recommend this above any other chain restaurant in the area.

This review covers the café and not the restaurant. We preferred to have dinner elsewhere, but not because of any negative reviews here or anywhere else. The café offers up service in tune with what locals call "peninsula pace" (the equivalent of "island time"). But that's not a bad thing since we came here to relax, not to have wait... More

We stayed the weekend in Sechelt and were told to try the gumboot cafe for breakfast. What a disappointment that was. The service was so slow and a bit rude, the food wasn't even that good and over priced. We must have waited an hour to get our breakfast, so I had to get a snack from the car to... More

Yup, as cafe's/resturaunts go, it's pretty crap. Okay food, high prices, snarky slow service. And yet, somehow, it's a totally amazing place to eat. You've heard of the sum of it's parts expression, well this place is far more than the sum of it's parts, which is Just as well otherwise I really wouldn't go.

Overpriced. Very slow service, sometimes surly service. Had breakfast here with a friend. She ordered turkey sausages, which did not come with her order. When I pointed this out to the server, she said rather snarkily "you didn't order sausages." I replied that she certainly had ordered them, as the server asked what kind she wanted. She was not happy... More

Great meal at the gumboot with all fresh ingredients. Service wasn't great but the food made up for it.

Mmm, mmm, mmm... the Gumboot. A great menu that's not to big and not too small. Fresh vegetables and thinking can be found here. It's definitely my favourite spot for a good breakfast... to die for tostadas or pear and brie french toast anyone? They have lots of vegetarian and vegan options (which is a rarity on the Coast) but... More

Stopped by the Gumboot for lunch based on reviews in a magazine. It was wonderfully funky and the food was excellent. A great place for families and singles alike. There are outdoor play areas for the young kids and a respectable kids menu. The adult food was wonderfully prepared, healthy and quantity was plenty!
