On the list, Thanks.
Are they affiliated with this place http://www.purden.com/? This looks like it good be a good place to relax, have some of that apple pie and stay for a night.
A place I really miss is the old Burger Junction in Revelstoke. It is now some uber high priced trendy shithole.
I also miss Tastee Freeze. Every small town had one and they were always good.
Geez Jack, you really are drinking the island "juice".
I'll second this, food is so so.
This place is defintely the best as far as getting a quick sandwich on the go. The quality is excellent plus the cost is real value for your money. The Tandori chicken and other meat sandwichs areas all made fresh. Your choice of veggies, cheese, condiments and types of breads, all included only $5.50. Red Barn has also expanded to the Western Communities located at the end of Latoria Road, making for a good road destination. http://www.redbarnmarket.ca/
West Saanich Location
Tandori Chicken Sandwich
Roast Beef Sandwich
Red Barn Sandwiches.....Ooooooooh YES !!!
Ferris' Oyster Bar. Great micro brews, wicked lamb burgers and awesome sweet potato fries. On lower Yates St. across from the parkade.
Bean Around The World. Great coffee shop with delicious panini's and soup. Good coffee of course. In Chinatown.
The Noodle Box in Chinatown across from the old Cop shop. The best deal in town.
Ferris is good. Agree.
Pagliacci's is still around and is just as good as it always was. And yes they still hand out a sample of the house red while you wait in line. Prices are fairly reasoanble and the bread they serve at the table is totally awesome. http://www.pagliaccis.ca/
Any word on The Ol' Frontier Restaurant in Revelstoke. They used to have a good selection of food on the menu, prices were good with large portions. http://revelstokecc.bc.ca/frontier/
I don't know. Last time I was in Revelstoke about 1-2 years ago I didn't recognize the town anymore. Ultra trendy, ultra expensive place. I miss old rough around the edges Revelstoke.
The Old Frontier has been closed/open on and off a couple of times over th epast year or so. I was surprised the other day when I drove by and saw vehicles in the parking lot, and the Neon "Open" sign was lite up. As you stated, it had a good reputation of good portions of tasty food at fair prices, however, I am uncertain as to the menu or prices these days.
The ole Frontier, Alas, is not what it used to be.
But, the Old Burger Junction is now the Nomad Food Co. and has great food and service, Except, it is really busy most of the summer and if you are there during normal meal times there is probably a lineup.
The Big Eddy Store off of hwy23 South is kind of hard to find, but has fuel at decent prices and good food inside.
I don't know about pubs in Chemainus but for food you can try eithier Gringo's Burritos or the Willow Street Cafe, both on Willow Street. http://www.yelp.ca/biz/gringos-burritos-north-cowichan, http://willowstreetcafe.com/ In Crofton try the Crofton Hotel http://croftonhotel.wordpress.com/
The Merridale Cidery has really good food, decent cider and a great setting....on a sunny day I can't think of a better spot in that area to have lunch.
excellent place http://www.merridalecider.com/
My friend from Ladysmith states that the Saltair Pub serves up the best food in the area. According to this some people like it some people don't. http://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaura...mainus_Vancouver_Island_British_Columbia.html
I used to live just down the road from there in the mid 90's, when Revelstoke wasn't all expensive and over priced.
