As a retired chef it is with great pleasure to have someone prepare mouthwatering tasty meals for us. We had quite a few dinners and lunches here during our stay in Barkerville, best food in the area. Don't miss this gem on your next trip...here.More

After completing the Bowron Lakes Canoe Circuit everyone wanted non dehydrated food. We stopped at Bear’s Paw Cafe. It was mid afternoon so they had run out of some of the menu items. While the selection was small, the food was delicious and the service...was good.More

Stopped in with the spousal unit one afternoon and sampled a couple of the cocktails off the menu. They were very good. Also tried a craft beer, and noticed some good wines on the menu as well. Sat out on the covered patio, spared from...the rain, and they allowed the dog to be out there, so that was cool. We never ate, but the food being delivered from the food truck looked really good.More

Stopped in here on the recommendation of a staffer at Beckers Lodge after a long day paddling, and it was perfect! Food truck attached to the cafe serves up a mean double cheeseburger and fries. The cafe had an excellent selection of local craft beer...and other beverage options. The ambiance was great and they didn't seem to mind our large group of eight ladies hanging out and having a laugh. I would have loved to grabbed coffee the next morning but we were on the road early before they opened.More

Hi Marie, While we appreciate the kind review, I think you might have the wrong restaurant! Perhaps this review was meant for the Bear's Paw Bakery in Jasper, AB? We are the Bear's Paw Cafe in Wells, BC, and we do have wonderful food and...More
