Our intercity bus had a breakfast stopover here. As a salmon-lover, the range of sandwiches and foods they offer, although limited, was made fresh and very yummy. Would be a nice place to stopover if you are driving along the way!

I have heard of this Cafe before but never been. Very impressed. Food was just fine but the big attraction were the Huge Trout that come from the River to feed on the spilt food from the Salmon Farm. Gotta See this
