Came here regularly while I stayed in Squamish for a couple months. Only open for breakfast/lunch/bruch, doors shut at 4:00. Good size diner, not fancy, seat yourself at a clean table, the staff buzz around busily and do a good job getting your food to you in a timely manner despite always being busy. Fairly large menu - lots of... More

No matter what day, or what year. Quality and presentation of food is unchanging. Always looks god and tastes good. Every plate!

Although popular, the service is bad. Tables are not cleaned, and 2 groups in front of us left as tables although empty were not cleaned in a 20 minute wait period. Service staff had an empty look and did nothing to rectify the situation. My advice: go somewhere else, food is not that good, service is bad.

We were looking for a homey, reasonably priced spot for a good breakfast and this is it! Friendly staff, great service and a delicious home-cooked Classic Breakfast with freshly brewed coffee. The selections for lunch looked excellent too, they also have baked bread, cookies and muffins for sale so we'll definitely go back for that. They have outdoor seating on... More

My family and I stopped here after our tour of the Britannia Beach Mine and because our tour guide recommended it. The place was humming but not overly busy. Service was prompt and pleasant. The food was delicious although our mushroom soup while tasty was only lukewarm. Food portions were decent and well presented. We would eat there again.

We stopped in Squamish on our way from Vancouver north for a day trip to get some breakfast. It was a sunday morning at 9am and we got a seat within 1minute. The restaurant was full and it took quiet a while until we got the ordered food but the waiting was worth it. Fresh, tasty, beautiful arranged food. Perfect... More

I'm a USA East Coast/West Coast guy, so I ordered a hot pastrami sandwich, thinking it would be New York deli-style: rye bread piled high with sliced meat. What I got was a reuben: sourdough bread with Russian dressing, sauerkraut, and the meat sort of piled to one side. Once I re-calibrated my tastebuds, re-centered the pastrami on the bread,... More
