Passed up a free breakfast at our Tofino B&B to stop again for Breakfast Buns at Homestead. We stopped on the way to Tofino and again on the return trip. That's got to tell you something about where the good food is served.

Good sandwiches and hotdogs. Quick service and good value for your money. Great brisket sandwich. Some days the lady has homemade soup too. The smoked chicken sandwich is the best I think. All sandwiches come on ciabatta buns and are very generous portions

Stopped in Port Alberni on our way from Tofino to Victoria last summer and decided to try Homestead Cookhouse. So glad we did. The women were super friendly and welcoming and extremely accommodating. Working in their tiny kitchen, they produce awesome meat and great sandwiches....More

Had some chili and pulled pork sandwich. Ok they're homemade but no there's effort to make it delicious. At this stage impossible to recommend

Only the best is good enough for our customers and friends! Hamburgers are made with AAA black angus reserve beef.One of very few establishments that offer BC Bison on their menu. Slow smoked, pulled Pork, Brisket and Chicken. Very popular menu items are really tasty. Homestead is for busy people who want great fast food. Custom meals, Gluten free and meat free options.
