We come regularly to Salt Spring and make a weekend morning beeline to the Tree House for our much beloved Tofu Scramble. Today we were baffled with what we were brought- rather than a generous tofu scramble, delectable potatoes, salsa and sublime seed toast with blissfully perfect blackberry jam- we were presented with a half ration of tofu scramble,a blob...

If you have a ferry to catch, are coming off a ferry, or are a local, there is no better place to eat fresh, island grown food, done in a totally elegant manner.

We were visiting Salt Spring Island for a couple of days and we ate at this restaurant shortly after disembarking the ferry from Vancouver. The menu was wide and varied and we all chose different meals I am pleased to say we were all very satisfied both with the food and drink. The service was very efficient and the ambience... More

The atmosphere is lovely, there's a tree in the middle of the café! Very rustic, very 'Salt Spring'. Just remember you're on 'island time'. The servers aren't very fast, may have to flag them down. I recommend ordering your drinks and food at the same time. Worth it though, 100%!

We loved it here. The food was fantastic. I had the yam quesadilla and my partner had the tree house club sandwich. Both were very tasty. It can get a little chilly in there but they had blankets for us to keep warm.

My partner and I stopped at the Tree House cafe for a quick lunch while touring Salt Spring Island. I had the Classic BLT (delicious) with a side of Kale Slaw. and my partner had the Turkey Cranberry with a side Caesar salad. Both good. Service was good. The cafe also offers a range of gear coffee drinks.

Visited over Easter long weekend. Went in for breakfast on Sunday morning around 11:00, where there was a wait for a table for 30 minutes. So we settled for a teeny table just inside the door by the hosting area, due to us being viciously hungry. This place doesn't hold many people by any means. It's quite a small establishment...

What a fun decor! This restaurant is really built around a tree. Inside is funky and you may have a wait as locals eat here too. The food was excellent! Prices are decent. Enjoy!

Located right in downtown Ganges (by Mouats), this small comfortable cafe features a menu of well-prepared food for locals and visitors alike. There is usually a lineup for lunch, but service is friendly and efficient. One of the better restaurant options in Ganges.

Don't let the fact that is Cafe is built around a tree deter you, winter or summer it is great food. I recommend the Chicken and cranberry sandwich. It is fabulous and I almost always have it, but their salads are great too. I have had other items but always go back to the chicken on ciabatta
