Join us for home-style, in-house made REAL Canadian Food! Fresh baking daily, from sausage rolls, meat pies, fruit pies, flans, cake, sandwiches! We use local, organic, hormone free food wherever possible! Perhaps the best eggs benedict and best fish and chips you've ever had! Seafood, burgers and steak are fast becoming a local favourite. We also proud to serve a fine selection of local beer, wine and ciders. Enjoy a beautiful drive along the scenic Malahat and make a stop at the Chalet for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The views of the inlet are second to none and the food is excellent. Taking a long drive, too tired to cook, stop in and pick up dinner to go. We have a selection of Grab & Go items, including house butter crusted meat pies, soups, sandwiches and sausage rolls. Call ahead and we can have any meal ready to go upon your arrival. Make us your new coffee stop! Our latte`s and espresso drinks are getting top notch reviews! Again, we are proud to use a local supplier and make each drink just the way you like it. Enjoy it here in our pleasant surroundings, or take it to go.
