Aug. 13, 2016 @ breakfast in this restaurant a big tall guy with mustache served us coffee with a dirty cups unwashed. Many coffee SPOTS outside around both cups & the other cup has lipstick marks, so groused. YUCK. My husband & I like to stop in Qualicum Beach Airport when we fly.

Small restaurant so it's always advisable to reserve before hand. Have eaten there for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The food and service are always excellent.

The first thing you notice is how close you are to the airplanes... whether sitting inside or outside. The restaurant seats about 40, and if the weather is good, another 20 outside.
