I keep going back because it's just that good. I love diners like this, where the locals eat and the tourists never seem to show up. It's tucked away in a commercial/industrial area, where parking can at times be a challenge, but it's worth it. I've had several of the breakfast offerings, and they have all been very good, but if it's lunch, my favorite is the "Cookhouse Burger" which is consistently unbeatable. Being rather ordinary, the fries don't quite measure up, so I'd suggest going with a salad, which is always fresh and interesting. Try it - you won't be disappointed.

Fresh, local, made from scratch. This is the best breakfast you're going to find. It's in an industrial area across from a lumber yard, but with a GPS or Google maps, easy to find. Make the effort because it's truly great.

Our second visit to The DISH -home cooked diner style food. ....impressive breakfast bennys with home smoked ham and salmon, three awesome house-made hot sauces, delicious bottomless cup of coffee. Friendly, attentive staff and a chef who will come out to chat, explain his menu items. This restaurant is top notch with Indoor and outdoor seating, also wheelchair accessible.
Durjng our first visit a month ago we chose from the lunch menu....equally impressive. The home fries are delicious. salad portions satisfying.
Don't miss this gem- it's definitely worth locating on GPS!! Menu and hours can be found at- http://www.dishcookhouse.com/

We stopped in at the Dish Friday morning on the way from Swartz Bay to Victoria. A little tricky to find but worth it! Their breakfasts are heavenly. Fluffy French Toast was perfect. The Jalapeño Chorizo Sausage Omelette delicious. The chef makes his own sausage and it is the best we've ever had. The service was super friendly and efficient. Loved it!

If you like a great breakfast or lunch at a reasonable rate you got to try this place. They make almost everything from scratch from their homemade sausages, backbacon and jams to other great lunch dishes. The staff is very friendly and helpful. It is a bit off the beaten path but well worth the drive. You won't be disappointed.
