After checking out Port Renfrew with no real plans. We came across this delightful place to dine. We were in the area and got hungry. So pleased we came across this casual yet well appointed restaurant. Food was great.

Best food hands down for the Renfrew area. Friendly serving staff,who will not steer you wrong on recommending a special of the day or a plate from their generous menu. Always good value for the money and care and attention to detail throughout the preparation...More

Because we were in Port Renfrew at the end of September 2017 - the Coastal Kitchen was only open from 07:00 to 11:00 a.m. We had breakfast there both days we were in town. The food was very good (I really liked the French Toast)....More

A local institution for 15 years. The regulars might be known by name, but this is hardly a mom ‘n’ pop fare. This beachy, laid-back restaurant serves all-day West Coast inspired breakfast fare such as Waffles and Eggs Benny. A selection of healthy to-go salads and sandwiches make it a great stop to refuel before hitting the trails or beaches. The focus is local: Free range eggs, in-house baking and prompt friendly service. Fresh ground Fantastico coffee and aromas of fresh baked goods will keep you coming back for more.
