“Great place!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

Probably one of the nicest and "best food place" to have breakfast and lunch on Salt Spring Island (it is closed in the evening). A must on this island!

“good food, nice cafe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We had a late lunch. The sandwiches and soup were excellent. Service was friendly but a bit slow and inattentive. It is a relaxed atmosphere where you can feel comfortable taking your time over a coffee or beer or wine.

“Best place to eat breakfast for sure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

This is a hidden gem. I love the treehouse but it is crowded on busy days and the portions are smaller than Barb's.

Barb's food is all ridiculously fresh and delicious. We ended up going there almost everyday of our vacation.
