Burns Lake is lucky to have such a lovely spot for great food and coffee and 5 star service and they are open often.

Our preferred place to have breakfast when the place was open. Healthy options as well as standard fare.

Having camped overnight at Spirit Park we looked for a breakfast spot - there is not much choice in Burns Lake. Our boys enjoyed waffles which were nice but nothing special. The coffee was good as was the muffin. A little pricy overall. Free wifi...access.More

We were travelling along and tenting it so we decided to eat here for breakfast. Well all we can say is that the staff work hard to provide you with the best ever food . Their egg scramble was the best ever we had anywhere....We insist on the recipe please. The place is busy and the service is spot on . The staff are friendly and helpful .More

Quite possibly the best coffee house on highway 16 between Jasper and Prince Rupert. Super friendly staff, wonderful service, and great food. Best egg scramble i’ve ever had. My wife always always has special dietary requests (they aren’t requirements - she’s just picky) and staff...always accommodate graciously. The owner makes a point of establishing a relationship with repeat customers. A joy to visit.More

We were treated very nicely by several of the staff. The food was great - try one of the several originally-designed paninis and top it off with a salt-carmel brownie....yummy. Our waiter was naturally personable, and not 'over the top' as are many waiters nowadays....It was a particular pleasure for us to be able to patronize a great locally-owned restaurant that was run so well. Thank you.More
