Some of the best food on Salt Spring. Often has great entertainment too and is right near the water, great Island vibe! Only drawback is that you can't make a reservation for supper... 1st come 1st serve so you might get there and either have to wait or give up in the busy season.

Excellent South end location in Fulford Harbour. All reviews from the Beach House B&B guests have been excellent. We continue to refer.

I went here with my mom, food was excellent (tuna tacos rocked), big portions, good service and over all neat experience having lunch in a tree! My only complaint would be the various flying insects, that are attracted to food and people.

As if tasty, healthy food, live music, and a full bar weren't enough, you can enjoy it in a tree! Well, almost in a tree. Close enough that your kids will be enchanted while you sitting in the shade of a great tree in the center of Ganges.

Casual, groovy cafe with a tree growing through it and off-beat wooden tables. Live music featured regularly. Great stop for brunch, coffee or early dinner and catch the local vibe.

We travelled to Salt Spring Island on Saturday to attend the Market in the Park. Afterward we decided to try the Tree House Cafe for lunch, which is located in a heritage cottage across from Mouat's. It is funky and charming. It was very busy but rather than having to wait around the hostess took our name and sent us... More

We were there for lunch and while the restaurant was very busy we received good service and our food arrived promptly. We had the lamb burger with kale salad and everything was very tasty.

I have lived on Saltspring Island for 30 years, and rarely eat out during the summer, because most restaurants are like factories, spitting out entrées by first year university students following a cheat sheet taped to the wall, so I didn't have high hopes for The Tree House. But we had visitors, and the Tree House also features live free... More
