Fodor's Review

This little riverside café, part of Duncan's Quw'utsun' Cultural and Conference Centre, offers a rare opportunity to try traditional BC First Nations fare. All meals start with warm fried bread with blackberry jam and salmon spread. From there, the menu offers both the familiar (salads, burgers, seafood pasta, and fish-and-chips made with salmon) and the more unusual (clam fritters, venison chili, or a seafood stew with salmon, cod, prawns, and sea asparagus). For a treat try the Salish Afternoon Tea for two, which includes candied and smoked salmon, crab cakes, blackberry bread, and more—all served on a cedar platter. A kids' menu and river-view patio in a parklike environment make this a pleasant family spot.
