We stopped at this cafe for breakfast before driving through the Rockies. The place conveys an old-time wild-west atmosphere with plenty of zany sayings that decorate the walls. The breakfast menu has enough choices to satisfy anybody, and the coffee is self-serve. Most of the breakfast choices are typically North-American, and they include toast and homemade hash browns. We chose a cheese frittata, and the helping was quite large; it was also quite heavy( fatty). This said, do not expect a Michelin-star studded gourmet temple, but a straight-forward cafe with very filling food, which can be helpful if you hit the road for the entire day and have no time for lunch. It worked for us!

We always stop at the Big Bend during our stay up in Blaeberry. Always enjoyable with nice staff & good food.
Well today August 11/17 all that changed. The staff member on duty today was not pleasant from the moment we arrived. No welcoming greeting. The tall slim blond motioned for us to sit at a specific patio table. It was in the sun & we sat at a partially shaded table. When this tall blond server came out onto the patio with table silverware , she was banging it into the various baskets on the other tables but ours. I asked if she was having a bad day. She said it was busy & that people are to sit at the table they are told to. Since we didn't like the table we were told to sit at, because of the sun we had moved. We still didn't get silverware & that was our decision to leave & never return .I told her I was going to mention this to the owner Rod, she didn't care & said go ahead while walking away. Guess the customers comfort & enjoyment doesn't matter.
This Flippant server should not be around people.

Stopped at the Big Bend Cafe en route to Vancouver, with 4 teenagers. They have many options for breakfast, from light to fully satisfying for the hungry. The food was good, and quick to the table. Everyone was happy. We will make this a regular stop for this route.

Stopped in on the way through. No room on patio so went inside. Was way way to hot to sit inside and no a/c. We lucked out and a table just opened up on patio.

As for the food, homemade fries, bakery buns, homemade burgers. Everyone us starting to do homemade now so what was special. Do not want to sound harsh. The food was good, service was good but so are a kot if other places. With no a/c and no it factor will keep trying other locals. Its great for one visit but for me plenty of other places to try in Revelstoke

Great local spot! We had a tasty breakfast with self serve coffee and a huge selection of hot sauce. Great atmosphere and vibe. I will come again next time I'm in town.
