I love relaxing here and talking to friends or fellow travelers. Easy going with a great menu! I always have the breakfast sandwich for morning dining. Its easy to find and lots of parking. Walk to it if you are any where in Sooke Centre.

This place is a throw back to nicer times. This is the new Cathy's Place and it's Old School. One of the regulars took our order as Cathy was busy cooking and her helper didn't arrive on time. Everyone pitches in and makes for a...More

To my great dismay the cafe closed in mid December and I ate at the last day there. It was a sad day but hopefully Cathy will open up another Restaurant as the building was sold. Many thanks for the great food.

I believe this place is now called Cathy's Corner Cafe. They have the best breakfast in town. I definitely recommend going here. They offer take-away and their service is very efficient.

Food is good and reasonably priced, and staff are pleasant. This is, however, quite a small, basic place serving mostly sandwiches, soup, breakfasts, that sort of thing: only about 6 tables in an old, kind of run-down, place at the end of a small strip...More
