While in Powel River one must visit this restaurant. Very casual, place with food made from scratch. The dinning room itself does not look the greatest but the food was very good. The servers were friendly and attentive. The house made chiritzo was just amazing. Its Friday and the dinning room was full of locals enjoying their meals. The eggs... More

So worth the short drive! Early morning breakfast was even better than expected. Extensive menu including at least 6 different types of Eggs Benedict. Full breakfast, waffles, pancakes, almost anything you could imagine. Busy for breakfast, but plenty of seats. Best breakfast in Powell River

A bit out of the way, especially if you're a non local, not really a drive by, but definitely worth searching out. The worst part about this place is trying to decide on having breakast or lunch, they're both great.

Went for breakfast and basically waited about 45 minutes to be served. Did not bring us menus for about 15 minutes and the funny thing is that 4 different tables came in and were served food before we were. Food was good and would probably go back as the problem might just have been the server not being very well... More
