New to Us
Everywhere we go on Vancouver Island the locals let us know of the very best, sometimes hidden treasures whose whereabouts are only known by them.
Here are some of our new discoveries.
Breakfast in Courtenay
The Hen and Hog Cafe
1190 Cliffe Avenue Courtenay BC
Open 7:00 AM - 2:00 PM Wednesday to Sunday
If you didn't know it was there you'd drive right on by.
Attached to the front of the Comox Valley Inn, this small cafe produces the very best breakfast anywhere.
We stopped by on a Saturday morning and were fortunate to have a short wait as this cafe is rather small.
The staff were pleasant and attentive and soon we were seated with coffee and waters.
The eggs benny being delivered to the table across from us called my name and oh my goodness was I pleased they did!
All things are made on site and it shows. Without a word of a lie the eggs benny were the best I have ever tasted.
And just when you think your cuilinary experience is all one could wish for, our server pointed to the bottle of hot sauce on the far reaches of our table. This sauce is so uniquely wonderful that I have no words to describe just how delicious it is.
We are determined to work our way through the rest of the menu in the coming months.
