This place roast its own coffee beans (organic / fair trade coffee) and delivery an awesome espresso. It is amazing to find a place like that in a really tiny town in BC. Easy access because it is just by the highway.

This place benefits from being right on the busy highway. It's super convenient to just pull over and stop for a coffee or light lunch. It's a little bit of a mish mosh inside. They sell some jewelry and giftware along with coffees, lattes, iced frappe, cold drinks and light lunches. There is a nice shaded patio where you can... More

We ordered the tuna grill and the ham provolone grill. Both sandwiches had lots in them and tasted amazing. The coffee and general atmosphere as well are great. These guys are open everyday 8-5 and are at the junction of Hwy 3 and 33 This is definitely a worthwhile food, drink and rest stop.

A true hidden gem in Rock Creek in the beautiful Kettle River Valley! The soups (4 per day) are FANTASTIC, the sandwiches (my fav is the ham and provolone) are GREAT, and the coffee is really good. If you still have room the scratch made desserts are super tasty. A fantastic lunch for super good value. If the place was... More

Wonderful little stop just as you enter The tiny town of Rock Creek. The owner is extremely friendly and ready to share the history of the area and makes an awesome latte! The small house and property, that are the trading post and cafe, feature many historical artifacts and photos of the property and it's former owners and surrounding area.... More

My wife and I had corned beef hash which was excellent and good value. The food is freshly prepared and as good as you make at home. We have eaten there a couple of times and it has been excellent every time.

They either need a new 'barista' or a new espresso machine.... Coffee is extremely weak and tasteless. Won't stop here again.

Place is ok, people are friendly. My friends and I stopped for coffee which we all found to be very weak and milky, no coffee taste at all. A cup of instant coffee tastes more than the ones we had, other than that it's a nice little place. We didn't like the fact that they charge for wifi, honestly? you... More
