I'm sure that many of you have a favourite place to eat in the smaller towns you pass through on your rides. I'm not talking fast food here--I'm thinking about the local "greasy spoon", a hole-in-the-wall bakery, or some funky little cafe.

Please post some recommendations for good, cheap food. Recommend particular menu items if you can.

I'll start:

Location: Kaslo, BC
Establishment: The Tree House restaurant.

It's on the main street in Kaslo (trust me, it won't be hard to find). Great meals, reasonable prices, and tasty pies for dessert. Oh yeah, great roads all around.

Port Alberni - J&L Drive In. The best damn burgers EVER

Whiskey Creek, on the way to Tofino/Port Alberni just past parksville - Stop at the Whiskey Creek Save On Gas - The best damn Ice Cream in the World!

The single scoop is bigger than a Baskin Robins Triple, plus a Waffle Cone is only $2.35!!

Be careful though, it's hard to lean in to the corners with a cone on the go. Plus you get ice cream on your visor.

Harrison Pizza in Harrison Hot Springs. Bar none, best pizza I've ever had in my entire life. I know Dekman and Angel Girl will back me up! :thumbup

Wayyyyy up there in Burns Lake, the Lakeland Hotel cooks up a mean plate of ham, hash and eggs that will keep you fuelled for a few thousand Ks. :D

Rock Creek - Gold Pan Cafe - coffee and cherry pie with ice cream.
At southerly terminus of Hwy.33, at Hwy.3

After riding either Hwy 33 or 3, two of the great DH routes east of the Okanagan, this highway cafe is great.

Very cheap pricing and also great burgers. Forget about health food though!!

Location: Hope
Place: The Home Restaurant (next to Chevron on the left on your way back out of Hope)

Damn big breakfasts & lunches. Come to think of it - damn big everything.

You end up eating so much it hurts to get back on your bike.

Now THIS is a great post!!

I'll keep an eye on this one for a while and hopefully enjoy some great eating establishments.

My thoughts:

Chemainus - Willow Street Cafe. The best lunches, fabulous deck, lunch price range $5.95 - $8.95.

Mill Bay - Serious Coffee. Stop in and enjoy a warm brioche and dark java for the road (rated one of the best cups of coffee on the island). They make a great roasted pepper soup and panini sandwhiches - again all less than $5.95.

Cobble Hill - Cafe des Artistes. Just off the highway in the shopping complex than houses Country Grocer. The BEST breakfasts. Nothing more than $5.95 and you will walk away full.

Duncan - Just Jakes Cafe. Downtown. Good food, great atmosphere. Great prices for lunch and dinner.

Just my thoughts for the small section of the world I live in.

Anyone mention the Flying Swan yet? Apart from the night events (Motorcycle Monday) they serve a great breafast & lunch. Read a bike mag while your there too. Located at 4th & Burrard. The Big Busa Wrap is one of my favourites .... mmmmm....

I also like the big log cabin pub on the right while entering Harrison. Food and ambiance are nice, and not too pricey. (I'll have to try that pizza place though).

There's another nice log cabin place around the Mission backroads. I can't remember the name though. (Wayne/Eddie?)

Is that the one that sits at the T intersection? Patio out front? Good wholesome fresh food? If so, it's great. That would have been my first pick.

Prince George: The Camelot. cheap, filling, wholesome.

Victoria: Pagliacci's. best bread before awesome pasta.

Port Alberni: The Clam Bucket, pricey, but lots of food.

Those are a few that come to mind.
Great thread BTW!

No, but the place your thinking of is great--just a little more expensive, though. I think it's called the Wild Rose Cafe(?)

I forget the names of place darn it. But when I roll into a town, I always know where to go back to if it's good.

Location: Keremeos
Establishment: K Cafe

I haven't been in for some time, but I have good memories of this place. The K burger platter (bacon cheese burger, fries, and salad) was less than 6 bucks. Home made peach pie with ice cream was ~3bucks. I've heard good things about the soup, but I've never tried it.
