Great food but you must leave room for the lemon merangue pie. Super friendly staff accompany good portions. Salmon corn chowder soup is a fantastic. Don't go through Sooke without stopping in this unassuming place.

They have been open for over thirty five years that I know of. It is an old building and looks like a 1960 style place. They have a nice old juke box at the entrance. Contact them for exact opening date.
