Nice to visit a restuarant that has more to offer than just burger and fries. Varied menu and fresh. Portion sizes let it down a little. We are cyclimg the Selkirk Loop and could have eaten more!

From the outside, just a house opposite town hall, but has several rooms and an outside dog friendly patio. Local Artists paintings on the walls. We have only had fish dishes off the menu so far. No complaints here, will be back regularly.
