My partner had the chorizo frittata and loved it! My bacon benny was undercooked- slimy eggs despite ordering medium. The hash browns were a combination of dried up potato skins and undercooked potatoes. Very disappointing! Loved the signs posted throughout the restaurant!

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...More

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....More
