Passed up a free breakfast at our Tofino B&B to stop again for Breakfast Buns at Homestead. We stopped on the way to Tofino and again on the return trip. That's got to tell you something about where the good food is served.

Good sandwiches and hotdogs. Quick service and good value for your money. Great brisket sandwich. Some days the lady has homemade soup too. The smoked chicken sandwich is the best I think. All sandwiches come on ciabatta buns and are very generous portions

Had some chili and pulled pork sandwich. Ok they're homemade but no there's effort to make it delicious. At this stage impossible to recommend
