    Huevos rancheros at Kaslo's Bluebelle Bistro are very good. They also serve excellent coffee roasted locally in Nelson.

    What we did find that was close to Balfour was The Village Bakery in Procter. Very tasty baked goods and the owner was friendly and quite helpful.

    Dominion coffee is uber expensive (bring your own mug, otherwise add 25 cents to a cup). Some people like Grounded which is also dear. I don't get the Oso Negro thing...
    Procter bakery (not in Balfour) is good. Taken a few years to get there though.
    Balfour bakery is pretty good. Better when he is doing market day in Nelson than Balfour for some strange reason.

    Biggest complaint with Nelson restaurants (other than being expensive) is zero consistency. Excellent one day, crap next. Have heard good things about the Funky Monkey (not tried it) but it is switching owners again for the third time so a crapshoot.

    Very good Chinese food in Castelgar. Chopstix.



    edit
    Rock Creek Hotel. Always wondered about that place. Need to try. Cheers.

    The bakery at Balfour, by the ferry, is great. Open 24hrs, for some reason.

    Bakers work at night,at least the ones not using them "Proof & Bake" frozen products. Might as well sell coffee and pastries at the same time.:wink:

    Oso Negro! That's the name of the coffee they serve at the Bluebell Bistro in Kaslo.

    That's some fine coffee, right there. :deal

    We stopped in to a little place somewhere near Cherryville on #6 this summer. A little cabin right on the side of the road (some sort of camp or something behind it).

    So many places to eat on this route from a number of pubs to fast food outlets. Highlighted are some of the more popular eateries on the way to Port Renfrew.

    17 Mile House in East Sooke is a real popular spot if you enjoy pub style food

    This place is great, not only is there decent food put afterwards you can spend a while looking at the old equipment next to the cafe.

    Yesterday a group of us met at Sooke and rode to Jordan River and then Port Renfrew with the intention to have lunch at the Coastal Kitchen Cafe. The weather was perfect.

    How does that Clubhouse look, man was it good. Apparantly Tomi's is staying open over the winter where as the Coastal Kitchen closes down in November for the season. Tomi's is closed Monday and Tuesday but is open the rest of the week.

    If you like BBQ, you like street food vendors and you're around Vancouver - try the food cart / trailer - Blue Smoke BBQ... just tried some at the Kerrisdale Farmers' Market - amazing. http://www.bluesmokebbq.ca/

    Other than that, the gas station/restaurant at Woss was great the last time I was there and it was a great way to fuel up before taking the back road to Gold River. Go here:

    The pie at Tomi's is fantastic but it takes two to eat one. It's an actual mini-pie!
