I think I've found our new favorite "local" after a friend of mine recommended we try "Trees" . Have passed this place many times in the past, but never stopped. It's on the Port Alberni Hwy, not far from Coombs market (on your way towards Parksville) and apparently it has recently been taken over by new owners and is now making quite a name for itself. It's a café style establishment and they also have a bakery section selling pastries, bread and pies.
I had the hot turkey sandwich and had the choice of soup, salad, fries or cole slaw. I had the slaw with my turkey sandwich and my husband had the mushroom burger with fries. Both meals were exceptional and were large portions. Most importantly, they were served with a friendly smile. The chef/owner (??) came out to all the tables to ensure everyone was enjoying their meals. You don't see this happening too often nowadays.
I would highly recommend you give this café a try. I'm sure you won't be disappointed.
