“Ok”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

Prices were reasonable, the wait was fairly long and the food not that great. I only went once, so perhaps it was just a bad day, friends said it was ok.

“Yummy Food, but crazy service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2014

Arrived here at 6pm on a Thursday night in July.

It took over an hour to get our food. Crazy for simple orders for 6 people.
It seemed that individuals that arrived after us kept being served first.

Unsure what caused it, but, be cautious if you are in a hurry.
The food, when it arrived, was great. No complaints and reasonably priced.

Waitress was pleasant, but, seemed to be at odds with the chef.

“Excellent fare”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2014

Being at the start of the tourist season, the restaurant is probably not open as late as later in the season, but when I showed up probably 20 minutes before closing, the service was most excellent and the quality of the meal was more than merely satisfactory. While waiting for the meal to be cooked, take your time to walk around the café and enjoy the high-quality art that shows and teaches you about the history of what must be one of Canada's truly friendliest towns

“Great breakfast!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

Needed a good breakfast before setting out on the Bowron Lakes circuit. This place had it - hands down! Great variety, cooked to perfection and loved the added charm of the place.
