“Quaint, cosy, great food”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

We were in Prince Rupert for only a few hours and found the town very disappointing, until we discovered the Cow Bay Cafe. It is truly a diamond in the rough. The food was excellent and the service pleasant..

“Lovely”
Reviewed 16 May 2014 via mobile

Went there just for dessert so I can't speak to the food but my dessert was delicious. Cute place and nicely decorated. Maybe a little pricey but otherwise great.

“Amazing food and view”
Reviewed 3 May 2014 via mobile

This cafe was recommended by a friend in Kitimat. Cuisine is Italian influenced and unbelievable! I travelled and lived in Italy and this cafe has the best caprese salad I have very had. The view is breathtaking and the service genuine. Highly recommended!!!

My wife and I ate here on Sunday evening 27/04/2014 for dinner,
We were given a good welcome and I had fresh halibut with fresh vegetables,it was delicious,my wife had a steak which again was delicious.
Well worth a repeat visit,which we tried on Monday but it was closed.
