Not sure how a place can operate so completely understaffed.....Though two professional (happy) servers could easily have handled the room - wasn't full. Got our own menu's.........About to go and get our own coffee after a long wait, but our server finally did show with 4 mugs for the 5 of us there.........Food was just ok and took a VERY... More

So worth the short drive! Early morning breakfast was even better than expected. Extensive menu including at least 6 different types of Eggs Benedict. Full breakfast, waffles, pancakes, almost anything you could imagine. Busy for breakfast, but plenty of seats. Best breakfast in Powell River

A bit out of the way, especially if you're a non local, not really a drive by, but definitely worth searching out. The worst part about this place is trying to decide on having breakast or lunch, they're both great.

Went for breakfast and basically waited about 45 minutes to be served. Did not bring us menus for about 15 minutes and the funny thing is that 4 different tables came in and were served food before we were. Food was good and would probably go back as the problem might just have been the server not being very well... More

Nothing special about this average, limited menu restaurant, premium prices for average food. Service is poor . Parking sucks. Nothing to rave about.

Awesome is the only word to describe breakfast here, served until 3 pm. The menu was two pages of pancakes, French Toast, 3-egg omelettes, and eggs benedict. The emphasis was on the latter, with at least six versions, including avocado, Ukrainian, classic etc. You then have to decide how you want your eggs, soft, medium or well-done, and finally, your...

I come here a decent amount with colleagues or other groups. The portion size is abundant for sure, so the value is good. The Food is good too! My complaint is that the service is very hit and miss. Usually takes awhile regardless of what you order. I receive my meal about 30-40 minutes after ordering, almost every time. Too... More

Deciding as a group of friends where to meet for lunch, we generally all choose Magpie's. There menu has such a wide variety of choices, generous portions, and it is all delicious. It's always busy with regulars, so you know it brings people back again and again.

After a three hour hike in the forest nothing can beat a big freshly cooked breakfast! This one was excellent with good quality sausage and bacon. This place was full of locals all enjoying themselves and the atmosphere was great. Service was on the slow side but they were very busy.
