This place has the best food! We had a delicious chicken sandwich, muffins etc. It's all good, especially the breakfast sandwich ! Fresh and affordable! Their server wasn't very friendly but it was still worth it for the food.

A short walk from the road at Skookumchuck trailhead leads you to this great little cafe. Quiet, serene beauty while enjoying a coffee, tea smoothie or sandwich. We went here 2 mornings in a row we lived it so much while visiting.

Delicious, made to order sandwiches, delicious cakes and great coffee in a magical forest setting near the Skookumchuck Rapids. Well worth seeking out.

After our hike to the narrows we enjoyed delicious sandwiches including chicken and ham. Freshly made bread and local meats that will please a discerning traveler. The cinnamon buns are delicious - you cannot imagine a more delicious scent.

After our hike to see the phenomenal eddies, we power walked back to get to the cafe, not being totally sure what time it closed! We were in luck! I had a veggie sandwich and my husband had a toasted cheese and ham with pesto. Both delicious! We topped these off with the best blueberry and lemon muffins we have... More

Cinnamon buns with raisins were an absolute treat - and so good to be able to choose to have them without the usual syrupy icing. Good coffee.

Cafe was quite busy in the afternoon on a weekend. It was getting toward the end of the day, so there wasn't much to choose from. Espresso Machine was out of service, so limited hot beverages as well. This cafe has undergone some changes since it was renovated after a fire. They were doing their best under the circumstances.

Thank HalfmoonBayMichael
