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


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

The Village Chippery - Shawnigan Lake

This place has really good Fish & Chips, but this time I wanted to try the home made onion rings. Nice light batter!

Tomi's Home Style Cooking - Port Renfrew

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:

Then here:

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

The Timberlodge in PA? I thought that they served German food - or at least they used to when I lived there. I would recommend the Clambucket on Victoria Quay in North Port Alberni - they make this wonderful 'Halibut Florentine' that I always treat myself to when I visit there.

Yup, my wife and I are there for breakfast every other Sunday throughout the riding season. If you get there early enough, you can even get cinnamon buns warm out of the oven.

Thin crust N.Y. style pizza. Outstanding. I know people that ride out from Vancouver just to eat this pie.
They only have a few tables and it isn't fancy by any means but the pizza is incredible.
The chef actually worked in a NY pizzeria for several years so they know how to do it right.
