“WestCoast quality and vibe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

We made our second trip back to Port Renfrew for another summer adventure in the beautiful botanical beach area and wanted to get a good meal before we set off. The restaurant is right off the road in the heart of Port Renfrew on your way to Juan DeFuca provincial park and the trail heads. You can order at the counter or order from the menu at your table. The inside is quirky and full of unique local art and the vibe you would expect from a down to earth west coast eatery. We chose to sit outside as it was a beautiful sunny day and our dog was also allowed to hang out with us as many people have dogs and they have water bowls available for them. We had loaded burgers, veggie burgers and grill cheese sandwiches. I particularly enjoyed the homemade coleslaw that came with my meal. The prices aren't really that bad and what you would expect from a very tourism based region, I believe the burger meal was $13. Our server was pleasant and treated us well. We will be back here to eat again and want to try their breakfast menu as it looked good.

“Great service and honest food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014

Renfrew has very few places to eat and the quality of the service and food was a nice surprise. We have ordered wraps and coconut curry chicken soup. Soup was very good and wraps were decent as well. Service was very friendly and prompt. This is not a gourmet place but I would definitely recommend it. The outdoor seating was pleasant as well.

“Welcoming and comfortable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2014

We had a light meal of soup and coffee (a Thai style chicken). Really excellent flavor which was ideal for us on one of the last chilly days of the season. Staff were most friendly, and the menu was far more extensive than our simple meal. We'll be back again.

“What a Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2014

We went here for a home cooked breakfast before hiked down to the Botanical Beach for the day.
It was a good start to our day.
