The resto was quite busy - to our surprise there were no desserts that day due to the family-day holiday. One guest wanted a turkey club but was told there was no turkey - she ended up with a grilled cheese - we ordered 2...More

Definitely not what it once was - young staff just going through the motions and more interested in each other than the customers and food was mediocre. Pies are great but that’s about it. Not going back as we were here 4 years ago and...More

Good wholesome food but we always seem to miss out on their famous meringue pie which is always gone when we are there. Looking forward to going to all you can eat fish and chips on Wednesdays

We went here for a quick breakfast and we were not disappointed. The service was good, the coffee was great and the food was very good. I would definitely come back for breakfast again!

This place is a little off the road but well worth finding. Great food with decent serving sizes and friendly service in a very clean cafe. Order was taken within 4 minutes and delivered within 5. Best place in Sooke.

I had the French toast, and it was absolutely delicious, it also meant I didn't need any lunch, nor much dinner - the portion was huge! Conversely, the pancakes my sister had were pretty small, we'd been travelling through Canada and having breakfast lots of...More

They have been open for over thirty five years that I know of. It is an old building and looks like a 1960 style place. They have a nice old juke box at the entrance. Contact them for exact opening date.
