and the banana milkshakes are to die for!!
Huevos rancheros at Kaslo's Bluebelle Bistro are very good. They also serve excellent coffee roasted locally in Nelson.
Great localy roasted coffee and huge, tasty muffins in Nelson's Dominion Cafe.
Excellent fish tacos at The Taco Hut on Cornwall St. in Kitsilano.
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.
Fishnbiker with Red Sonja
I had a coffee and muffin, both good, will definitely go back here and try lunch.
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.
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.
Oso Negro! That's the name of the coffee they serve at the Bluebell Bistro in Kaslo.
That's some fine coffee, right there.
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).
BEST OPEN FACE SANDWICH
I'm thinkin you're thinkin of the Gold Panner Cafe just past Cherryville. A favorite stop of mine on Sunday blast to the Needles Ferry and back.
Also on the Prospector Pub in Rock Creek.
Hurray it's not rainning right now, so it's a good day to do the Pacific Marine Circle Route. Report to follow regarding a couple of favourite places to eat.
Yup. That jogged my memory.

17 Mile House in East Sooke is a real popular spot if you enjoy pub style food
Mom's Cafe in Sooke has been here for a very long time serving a good breakfast and lunch menu
Shells Fish & Chips in Jordan River - Lee riding his Ducati 620 Dark really enjoys the hamburgers made here
Coastal Kitchen Cafe in Port Renfrew - Fresh Salmon and Chips a local favourite amongst the bikers
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.
gayto, woodsman 149, paulmondor, Ron from BC
Jordan River - Fish & Chip truck in background (apparantly closed by health authorities)
The Coastal Kitchen Cafe was closed and paulmondor suggested Tomi's Home Style Cooking
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!
The Whispering Pines Restaurant/truckstop in Falkland. Homemade brown bread! I would ride there just for toast!
