Description: Wendel's nourishes hungry minds and bodies as an independent bookstore and fresh-food café. The café lavishes readers with a menu of fresh fare made in-house that eschews preservatives and accommodates dietary needs with wheat-free, dairy-free, and vegetarian options. An outdoor patio puts patrons in prime reading, people-watching, or espionage-conducting position to enjoy local scenery along with breakfast selections such as organic blueberry pancake and omelettes. Lunch and dinner selections span hand-held bites such as the chicken-and-avocado wrap and heartier dishes such as wild-salmon-and-asparagus salad. Coffee and espresso creations range from lattes and cappuccinos to mocha frappes and are brewed with beans from local roaster Moja Coffee and water from the local fountain of youth.

First time at this eatery, suggested by our son & daughter in-law, to give it a try and we were very pleased with our experience! You need to have good timing to located a table outside (on a nice day), the procedure is to place your order at the main counter & you will receive a wooden block with an order number. The efficient staff with be out with your order in a timely manner! We went for breakfast, which was very tasty and the coffee also hits the spot! Great location to see Old Fort Langley shopping & nice location to walk your kids & family dog!

I ride my motorcycle here regularly for their breakfast, it is always good and the servers are very friendly. The food is always fresh and tasty and they serve good coffee. It is a great location to sit outside and people watch

Friendly place with good drinks etc at reasonable prices. Can get busy on Sundays when there is normally a queue and lack of seating. The bookshop is interesting to look round. I like it as it has a family run atmosphere.

We had dinner at Wendels after a Fort to Fort Walk. All three of us had lemonade (delicious, tasted homemade and not too sweet) plus entree and dessert. From the quinoa and roasted yam salad, to the chicken burger on a pretzel bun, to the cilantro chicken wrap, we were hugely impressed. Very fresh, lovingly prepared and great portions. The deserts were exceptional. And again, nice portions for the money. Unquestionably the most memorable meal I've ever had in Fort Langley. Wonderful, local feel. Bookstore such a nice addition to the ambiance. Would like slightly bigger table but that's a minor quibble. Great experience. Consider packing picnic luncheon Wendel's. Great way to enjoy a fort walk--picnic on the way near the apple trees and lovely views.
