This place was so good for breakfast/brunch we even came back for dinner. We ordered the chicken & waffles and the breakfast bowl. For dinner we ordered the chicken parm & the tuna poke bowl. Everything was a 5/5 and service was great!

This is a lovely place to stop for a meal. The staff are really friendly and the food was delicious. The selection of drinks was also very impressive, from soft drinks to beer, wine and cocktails. Quite a few locals eating as well, which is...always a good sign.More

Ill start by saying I dont think the location is geared for breakfast service but they did a very good job at brunch regardless. Extensive menu and scratch made items and I will say everything was made very well with the one drawback being everything...was a bit on the cold side. My guess is a lot of par cooking prior to service and just not finishing things off on the heat for an extra minute or two. Maybe some stronger heat lamps? The food came out quickly so it couldn't have sat for long. Really the food with chicken and waffles and my mexican 3 pc eggs benny had some excellent flavour profiles and cooking skills, with nice presentation and a very good price point. Service was also very good. Just need to get the temp controlled coming out of the pass and this would be an easy 5 star. We look forward to returning and would highly recommend.More

Food was excellent, as always. Good selection of gin… could have stocked Monashee Gin, but never mind. Service was fast and efficient.

Service was excellent! My friend and I sat at the bar for an appetizer and a beverage. I'm celiac and she has gluten sensitivity, so it was nice to see that there were some great gluten-free options on the menu, and the wine choices were...great. Danny ( our bartender) and Sarah (our server) gave us OUTSTANDING service and it was so lovelyyyyy! Thank you, Danny & Sarah! :-) We appreciate you!More

Visited this quaint restaurant for my birthday. Everything was wonderful. My son had the salmon burger and I had the chicken parmigiana. We had the tacos to start. Friendly and professional server and great ambience. Highly recommended.

My husband and I both had the Chicken Parmesan. The waitress said it was her favorite thing on the menu. It was outstanding! Easily the best chicken parm either of us had ever had. Chili oil on the fettuccine made it slightly spicy (but not...too much), chicken was cooked perfectly with an amazing crust on the outside and tender and juicy on the inside. The layers of cheese as well as pesto sauce and marinara sauce was excellent! We had so much we had to take the rest home and had it for dinner the next night…still delicious!! We didn’t have the steak, but saw it delivered to several others around us and it looked incredible as well. If only we were in Revelstoke longer!More

One of the most enjoyable meals we have had in awhile! Delicious food, lovely Syrah, engaging busy bartender/server, Nick. First time there and even without reservations waited just 20 minutes for seats at the bar. Highly recommend!

A very good dining experience. As the name suggests it is actually in what was once, and still looks the part, a public school with all its quirkiness. Among the handful of top fine-dining choices in Revelstoke this is probably the most reasonably priced, perhaps...because it is not "downtown". In a city as small as Revelstoke though that is hardly a problem. Our food was very good indeed. If you want a burger that truly tastes like a burger, created from scratch with care and imagination this is the place, though fancier options certainly exist. If we had a hesitation in our enthusiasm it had to do with service. Yes it was fairly prompt and accurate. But we had the real impression that two distinct types of service were in evidence. One for regulars/friends of the owners and one for the rest of us. It gave us a feeling on being second-tier.More

Amazing! Great variety and incredible flavours. The squid was incredible (and polenta fries a great accompaniment), and the mains so filling: steak perfectly cooked, poke bowl came with incredible amounts of lovely salmon, and even the Thai soba noodle salad was huge. We all came...home in a food coma! Definitely no need for dessert. Servers were lovely - attentive but not intrusive. Overall a great evening.More

Dinner after our arrival in Revelstoke, which was our overnight stop on the way to Banff/Calgary. So glad we stopped in the charming ski town. Dinner here was fantastic and my eggplant parmesan was literally the best I've ever eaten. Make reservations ahead of time....They get crowded.More
