Fun to see pilots and travelers in an old town cafe setting. Had not been here in 38 years and I still find it interesting. Just dropped in for Breakfast as I was in the area. The coffee was good as was the home made breakfast bacon and egger.

It a casual place and I would like to return for some of lunch selections noted on the menu..

A friendly cafe at the Pitt Meadows Airport Terminal, very casual and no-nonsense.

Menu is typical of any cafes with Soups and Sandwiches, also with salads that can be a light meal, half order is available. There are a good selection of baked goodies; cookies, bars, and various cakes.

Ordered the Cobb Salad and a Grilled Turkey Sandwich, both were made to order and fresh, just right for a light lunch before the flight!

Great addition to this small airport, the patio is a fantastic place for plane lovers, to sit and watch the action!!

Every time we've come for lunch there's no soup, today only 1 type of bread..... a bit of a disappointment.

Sorry Mollyflyer we have five types of bread
White, Whole Wheat, Sour dough, French and Cheddar Cheese that are baked fresh everyday, we try our best to prep the proper amount for the next day as its takes hours to proof and bake. Yes there are days when we sell out of some types
We also make two homemade soups a day and on busy days we will sell out before the end of lunch time.
We will increase the bread amount and add a third soup hopefully that will get you the great lunch you came in for

I called in here with a cycling club that I belong to, we had just finished riding the "Cranberry Trail" and were ready for some good wholesome food. The food preparation area is very small so it is amazing that they have such a large menu choice and were able to effectively deal with a group of 15 all arriving at the same time. The menu choices cover breakfast through to lunch with breakfast choices lasting all day. I chose the ham and cheddar 3 egg omelette which came with toast, you could also add hash browns but I chose to pass on that, the omelette was very tasty and the cost was reasonable, the total cost including a hot chocolate was $11.10 before tip.

We love the Runway Cafe for breakfast or lunch and took friends there this past Saturday, July 15, for a yummy breakfast with a view. Food as always was great.

Unfortunately, the service was not. Two girls working, one provided great customer service. The other was miserable, she was so flustered and pouty (as if her boyfriend had broken up with her) her bad behaviour was noticed by all of us for her terrible attitude. And her nails were so long that she couldn't even prep food or use the cash machine. She should not be working there. But we will be back regardless because we love the place. Hopefully the management reads this.
