Nelly loves this place for breakfast and lunch, as it gives you all the healthy plant-based options, both sweet and savory! Great concept and pretty successful. Amazing selection of hot and cold beverages. Try the mushroom hot chocolate with a salty caramel bar or a beetroot-rose latte.
Heather is a friend of ours. She and her husband carefully roast the beans in town and they won't disappoint! There might be a wait in the morning as they are quite popular! They also carry some bread from our artisan bakery friends 'Summit Bread' in Tofino!
Welcome to the Darjeeling express! Tea-lovers rejoice. Narrow but deep selection of loose tea.
These guys not only roast their own coffee, but make delicious inexpensive pastry and soups for lunch. Not as hip as the popular places, but top quality. Made with love and we go there frequently to get a snack for the beach on the way out. Open summers only. The cinnamon buns are otherworldly.
Soul food - Superb spot for your breakfast, lunch and dinner. Make sure to sit out back if there is room to soak in that sun! The owner is the former chef of the Long Beach Lodge and the historical building used to be the officer's casino.
Best fine whining and dining in town. Chef Warren used to work at the Wickaninnish Inn when I did too. Fine human and great chef and we are stoked to have stolen him from Tofino (collectively that is). RESERVATIONS RESERVATIONS!
Interesting spot right ON the water. Like to go there for a greasy fix and beer when its sunny. Not so nice inside, but a true 'harboury' atmosphere. Beware of the steep ramp leading down to it at low tide! The ribs are my fave, but the Thai crab cake was great too!
The very best pizza in town hands down. They import their tomatoes from Italy and use a wood fired stone oven for that authentic taste. Call ahead to take out and yes, you might have to wait a bit during rush hour. Abbondanza cheese is my favorite inexpensive choice. One pizza 'can' feed two.
Its the local resort and a great place for a scenic lunch (mesmerizing view) and a polished option for lunch and dinner. We like to go to the float lounge for an informal beer and snack at the end of the day.
After years of restoring the old church building to its new glory, Ucluelet is proud to add this prime location to our collective inventory. The setting overlooking the inlet reflects the vibrancy Ucluelet in its core is about. Great beer and a neat choice of small snacks (pretzels and mustard!) round of a relaxing spot to meet and greet. Go grab the nook beneath the bell tower if it ever is vacant!
Korean cuisine at its finest - I haven't been able to try out Tofino's latest addition, but I hear everyone raving about them - our guest love them!
Great coffee and signature donuts and my fave place to get my provisions for a long market day (bacon maple sirup donut), wearing my AHOY BAGS hat in the summer. Once Tofino wakes up, there will be a long lineup in the summer. Its so good, that the RCMP built their new station right next to it! (look, its just too coincidental. Donuts, right? KIDDING!!)
The best way to soak in the vibe on Chesterman Beach while having a beverage. They also offer beach chairs, so its a win right there! Oh and did I mention the open fireplace! PERFECT in the storm-watching season!
It's the Wick - do I need to say more?
But make reservations! Stunning views too - They also used to have microphones outside to pipe the breaking weaves right into your dinner ambience (not sure if they still do).
Very attentive to detail, best service in Tofino hands-down.
Ok, the food is very good as it should - Chef Nutting is serious about food and used to be the head chef of the Wickaninnish Inn. The staff though can be pretty pretentious and attitudey. Whatever you read in the magazines are to be taken with a few grains of salt, as the investor gas friends in the publishing industry.
You need reservations to enjoy the 'upstairs' whereas the downstairs pub is first come first serve.
The chef graduated from The Culinary Guilt in the states and she is offering a vast vegetarian-based cuisine.
The owner Ron (hat) might be insane, but his joint makes the best sushi in both towns. Make sure to get a seat outside out back. Weird and wonderful! I just love the Dynamite roll!
You don't want to miss the locals favorite watering hole! With their staple beers on tab, seasonal variations and experimental brews, this is the place to rub shoulders and spoil the palette! Have a tasting flight and a snack (Pretzel please) or fill up your growler to go to be enjoyed on your deck back at Two Beaches!
