During rainy weather, customers obviously must eat inside a very cozy room. When we arrived two tables were taken by individuals with the ubiquitous laptop/tablets open and an empty coffee cup nearby. A third empty table had a plate of food on it but no...More

this tiny restaurant / bistro has a wonderful variety of homemade soups, sandwiches and dessert that will meet everyone's tastes. During the warmer days eating outside on the lawn overlooking the busy ocean pass is a joy.

The title of this review pretty much sums it up in six words. There is nothing innovative about the menu. It's middle-of-the-road food of the sort that you would find at any family restaurant. It seems to be popular and the staff are friendly.

We stumbled upon The Fernwood Road Café - enjoyed sitting outside - coffee/ juice and corn muffin. Picture Perfect! Can walk out to the pier and watch people catch crabs - a whole different view and experience of SSI. Take the journey!

Fine lunch food and great location to hreak a tour of the island. Outdoor seating where you can watch the tourists and locals. Across the road is the Fernwood pier affording great views of passing boats. On busy days jus park along the road.

i think it's the nicest place on Salt Spring for coffee and brunch. Good, individually prepared food, and a comfortable place to read or chat, inside or out. Eggs any way you wish; crisp, airy croissants; and excellent coffee. There's art on the walls and...More
