Went with some friends and had breakfast. Eggs Benny, over easy, poached with pancakes. The food is home- kitchen cooking; the service was friendly and timely; the location is scenic; the prices reasonable. The coffee was weak and tasteless, though. I would probably go somewhere...More

Very nice, informal beach-style cafe. Good for eggs or pancake style breakfasts, served until 11.30am. Ocean view. Pleasant service. Large, clean restrooms.

Quaint little hole in the hole kind of place. Bacon, mushroom, onion,Swiss omelett was delicious. Seated fast, service was speedy and food was excellent.

A good option for a beer and better than average cafe food. Servers are friendly and appear to be 'involved'. Patio overlooking the water. Burger was above average as were fish and chips.

Not bad food in Qualicum Bay. Used to be a gas station way back in the day. The food is good if you're hungry. Fish and chips are good. Coconut shrimp were good too

Saturday breakfast runs till 1pm. Go take a walk in the woods and then come here for REAL FOOD. I had an omelette that had real taste. Lunch menu looks great. Will have to come back!

After attempting to have all four of us satisfied with a good breakfast restaurant we finally have discovered the Sandbar to be the best choice within 30 km. Breakfast is tasty, fresh and promptly served by one very busy waitress.

Tasteful homestyle cooking! Inparticular the burgers were home made and delish. The cafe was cute and cozy

Stopped in here for lunch today randomly, the place looks like of junky from the outside but the food was really good, all 3 of us cleaned our plates. I am always hesitant to order beef dips cause 95% of the time they are awful...More
