The food they have sure beats the awful fare on the BC ferries. I always grab something to eat on my way back to the Mainland. If you are heading out of Pender you have to go to the Stand.

Great food every time we go. Excellent coffee for the early morning travellers and you can't beat the breaky burgers, YUM!

We were very early to catch our ferry...it was nice to see this little Eatery for the convenience of travellers. People were buying Hot dogs and other quick meals. I just had a huge ice cream cone for $3!

We were probably the first customers but the OPEN sign was on. ....so we went on up to the window. I gave a cheery, yet subdued Good Morning (the guy was counting change, don't wanna interrupt his count..). Wow, this guy? So so NOT a morning person.....bad night last night Dude? Not the customers fault. Just sayin.. Bagel with peanut... More

Great Location, near the Ferry and good way to enjoy some food before any departure. Food was definitely fresh, yet, was slow, so very slow. They obviously try to make the best food, yet the prices are extreme.

Another one of my favourite eating places on Pender Island. We come to PI at least once a month and when we leave, we make sure that when we are in the ferry lineup early enough to get a breakfast burger. They are the best breakfast burger I have ever had. Just add tomato and mayo please!

Had some food here waiting for the ferry. Very friendly people and good food. Definitely the place for some food before the ferry shows up.

Get in the ferry line early, just to give yourself time for a burger. These are the best you will ever have! Hot coffee, ice cream cones--everything you need for a ferry line-up. Usually open Sunday nights, but frequently closed. Ask the locals for their recommendations.

My family and I love this place and always plan to get to the ferry at least a half hour before sailing. The Salmon burger is my favourite, and cut in half is easy and filling enough for two to share.The ferry ramp hot dog and the cheeseburgers and milk shakes are also very popular with my kids.

This is a trailer with a few seats overlooking Otter Bay. It provides snacks and substantial burgers. The early-morning coffee is a life saver for some, while the brekky bun satisfies most morning appetites. The Hummer burger should by now be world-famous: it's a rite du passage for those with a hearty hunger.
