I had a burger to die for ! So big and tasty. It was served with wonderful homemade coleslaw with sunflower seeds and cranberries. They were very willing to make breakfast mid day and were generous with the tasty bacon and home fried potatoes and well toasted rustic bread that made my husband smile. We enjoyed the friendliness of the place and the selection of magazines and books that we flipped through while waiting for our meal.

We paid our bill and were tempted by the backed goods on display leaving with the world's largest macaroon and a memorable Naniamo Bar.

Tomi and her staff never cease to make customers feel welcome, well-fed and caffeinated! The ambience they have created feels as if you're walking into a friend's home for a visit! The open kitchen allows you to watch the ladies as they make delectable baked goods, hearty soups and other delicious fare, which only makes the experience more engaging. My boyfriend and I were in the area for 3 months and in that time had to use the internet quite a bit, but the ladies never made us feel like a burden as we took up our little cosy corner of the restaurant to do our work. The staff are super friendly and always smiling and Tomi is always laughing, which is quite nice to see an owner/manager enjoying herself in the workplace! Looking forward to getting back, especially for one of the heavenly cinnamon rolls!

We were quite surprised to find a curry coconut creme soup at Tomis Home style cooking on our Sunday hikes in the Port Renfrew area. The service and food was great. The hostess allowed us to charge our phone and had lots of great knowledge about the area. It was a great lunch and super cozy.Thanks for the great burger as well. Good burger patty.

You can always rely on a delicious home cooked meal prepared with fresh healthy ingredients in Tomi's open and spotless kitchen. I have been a regular Port Renfrew visitor since the '90's and Tomi's quickly became a favorite. This trip we were a group of 6 we stayed for 3 nights and all thoroughly enjoyed 2 meals a day at Tomi's ...consistently delicious! Warm service in a clean, cozy atmosphere and very conveniently located next to The Artisians Well ( a great gift store filled with local treasurers and art).

Good cafe style food. Had a glass of wine, not bad. Clean space, well presented, friendly staff, goo value. Is much better than the outside might lead you to believe. Yup. Recommend this one for lunch or a snack.
