The breakfasts were delicious and coffee divine. All 4 meals at my table were enjoyed immensely, although they recently changed the burger recipe (no more cumin) which is a disappointment.

We stopped for lunch and the food was exceptional. We thought of returning for dinner but did not have the chance. Good experience and recommended to us by a local.

There was a broad menu with lots of fresh and tasty options. The outdoor seating feels like you're in a treehouse. Very fun and relaxing atmosphere.

We stopped for lunch while touring Salt Spring Island. It was busy but the food was pretty good. Service was friendly enough, they were very busy so it looked like everyone was rushed. It was a unique setting and had good views of the harbour.

You will need to call them and ask. It's a fairly small place. Might be better to go to bigger place.
