Super cool atmosphere, the restaurant is literally built around a tree. They have a great selection of breakfast foods and everything is cooked fresh and it’s all organic. They have amazing local coffee and great service!

A must visit if you find yourself on Saltspring. The restaurant is built around a tree as the name suggests. We found ourselves here after a not so welcoming experience at another restaurant and were warmly welcomed by their friendly staff. The food was really...More

From a taste of India to Greek Tzatziki, Hummas to just really tasty food for all. Setting is unique as in the name. Soup, burgers and sandwiches are filling. Salads also unique. Good food, busy and very popular with locals and visitors to Salt Spring.

Had to go here, it's a Salt Spring landmark! I recommend the roasted yam quesadilla! The outside of the restaurant is beautiful, and looks like a treehouse! I just found the inside to be not as exciting, and "tree-house-like".

Worst place for a vegan person to eat.... they literally have nothing that’s vegan. I ordered something that had tofu as a substitute “instead of chicken” and I still got bread that had eggs in it.... without any warning. Do not recommend for vegans

You will need to call them and ask. It's a fairly small place. Might be better to go to bigger place.
