We heard great things about the place and were optimistic, but we couldn't see all the fuss. Setting was pleasant on the golf course. All the food was just "ok". My ham sandwich had much too much butter on the bread -kind of ruined it for me...Grandpa had seafood chowder -he liked the flavour, but felt it was thin, lacking... More

Since Penny's moved to take over catering at the Golf Club, both have been energized and transformed. This is a new favourite of locals to eat, in a comfortable diner style setting indoors or with great views over the greens from the outdoor eating area. Penny's is open to the public to come & dine in a unique setting. If... More

Burgers are good. Brunch items are my favourites. The service is great. Haven't done dinner yet so I'm not sure about the bar. One... More

While they are still working out the "kinks" associated with a major move, the food is still of great quality. The best burger on Salt Spring, and almost everything made from scratch. Breakfasts are top-notch. Not for those in a great hurry.

This used to be Jana's Bakery so when it changed hands I was skeptical. Jana has her own new place now and her baking is still great but I was pleasantly surprised when I went here. Everything was really yummy and they offer a more extensive and tasty GF selection. We are definitely gng back!

Giant muffins - regular plus some gluten-free. Pies, deli dishes, deli sandwiches, salads, and great coffee. Staff always seem glad to see me, and I know it ain't my looks! Must be good, as I see lots of friends there.

Now here is a hard working, home cooking, delicious and hearty lunches kind of place! I ate there yesterday, meat loaf sandwich and a bowl of thai-chicken soup! Yum!!! I was too full for desert but i've had thier caramel chocolate shortbread and that is totally scrumptious! Nice warm environment also, one of my favourite lunch spots.
