Nothing really special to say about this place. The seafood chowder was good but a bit salty. Looked interesting and the decor is cute. Saw a rating about their pies but we were completely disappointed in them. The apple pie was mushy with a huge roll of hard pastry and the strawberry rhubarb was also mushy.

Have eaten here several times over the past 3 years. Good breakfasts, like homemade feel of prepared food. Keeps me coming back, friendly staff, good service and reasonably priced. Check out the pie and big cinnamon rolls!

These burgers used to be awesome. I bent the processed burger patty in half and it didn't crack. Pure rubber frozen patty. So disappointed. It was take out, so can't even send it back. Wish they had the same standards as they used to. Waste of money!! Now I need a sandwich.

We had breakfast here during our two night stay in Sooke. Great place with lots of breakfast options. Their shredded hashbrowns were particularly good.

We were out for a drive so thought we would go there for desert. That turned into an order of ceasar salad which was good, I think 13.50 expensive but enjoyable. The beef dip was delicious and good value. I decided to have an order of fries and when paying couldnt believe the price was $7.00. Ridiculous for just fries.... More

We stayed in Sooke for two days and ate dinner and breakfast here. It was great to be back in a diner - but nostalgia aside the service and food was excellent, and in large quantity. It is justifiably popular but we had no problem getting a table.

Went to Sooke for 3 days and ate here 3 times! What more can I say? The pies are to die for. The breakfast was fantastic. The home-cooking is awesome. Like an old-time diner.

We were greeted promptly and chose the salmon chowder. Excellent! I have had clam chowder but this was a first for salmon chowder. Quaint place, just like a small town Cafe one would expect. Also some nice art on the wall and local newspaper to read. A most pleasurable place.

I'm normally shy and not one to complain. This is the first time I've felt compelled to right a review. I waited half an hour to be seated, even though there were two empty booths in plain view. They kept saying "Oh just one more minute we have to clean up." Then for the rest of the time we were... More
