“Home cooking, lots of choices, a bit overpriced”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

This was the only place to stop in for lunch when we visited FSJ briefly in May of 2011 before moving there. It was alright. They had sandwiches, soups, breakfast and all sorts of other home cooked goods in their display fridge. Lots of locals were here to hang out for their morning/brunch snack. The service was alright, I wasn't really sure how to order but you just ordered at the counter and they called you when ready. At this point, there is a for sale sign in the window since a few months ago. I think the Subway opening just next door may have somethng to do with it.

“Tim Hortons has Nothing on the Red Fox Bistro!”
Reviewed June 20, 2011

Pretty little downtown Fort St. James! About a 10 minute walk from the Fort Historic Site and ample parking if you want to drive. I visited on a Saturday and the Red Fox Bistro was open for breakfast and lunch with great variety and serving sizes.

Almost too much choice between their sandwhiches, wraps, soup, chili, variety of salads ( potatoe, macaroni, spinach) etc. Simple but delicious fare, well priced and better tasting and better priced than Tim Horton's. I enjoyed my peirogies and sausage lunch special and followed it up with a peice of carrot cake and a latte. They will do picnic lunches 2/$10, but I opted to eat there instead. I loved the small-town independent ownership feel to this place. Will definitely make the trip back.
