Food was great... my order was wrong but it was amazing so I didn't say anything. I will definitely be eating there when I am in Salmon Arm.

Terrible, literally the worst restaurant i have ever been to, it took 30+ minutes to make 5 sandwiches, the beef dip had no horse raddish, and minimul meat, and tasted like the brown bag it came in!

We took visitors there to get treats for the road. The selection of breads and pastries is excellent, all received rave reviews. A box of pastries was prepared to take to the hotel for an after dinner treat. Staff friendly and cooperative asking good questions to recommend suggestions to accommodate particular tastes and diet restrictions.

We went to this restaurant thinking it might be a hidden gem. Unfortunately it wasn't. Ordering is done as you walk in from the posted menu. Options are pretty good and everything seems to be made to order. Service is very slow and there is a cost for refills which seems unusual, however, prices are reasonable.

If you're looking for a cafe style place with delicious food then the Blue Canoe is the place for you. From my experience the food took along time to get to my table, so have some patience. The girl at the front counter wasn't very friendly. Also inside the cafe it wasn't even busy and there was dirty tables everywhere.... More

We needed a gluten/dairy free meal and this cafe had great choices and tasty soups and salads, nice atmosphere. Convenient place to eat downtown across the street from the visitor's center--lots of tables. We had curried lentil soup, bread, slaw and green salad.

Love the homemade aspect to this cafe. Always busy and has a loyal following. The sandwiches and soups are very good and different as well.
