Michelle came to visit on the Labour Day long weekend. Instead of me cooking breakfast, we decide to grab something on the way to Skookumchuk Narrows. We had no idea where we were going to stop, we just hit the highway and hoped for the best.
We passed quite a few places - fancy resort restaurants, pubs, cand cafes before finally settling on Copper Sky Cafe and Gallery in Madeira Park.
It was a beautiful, sunny day so we decided to sit outside and enjoy. Breakfast was a choice of eggs and toast, omlettes, french toast, fried egg sandwiches, homemade granola and a selection of baked goods. I order a banana butterscotch muffin, Michelle went with 2 eggs and toast and jam in her coffee.
While we were were waiting for the hot food, I took a quick look in the gallery side. There was a lot of art that I wouldn't mind having in my non existant house. Photos by Andy Cotton in particular. I could do a big chunk of my Christmas shopping here. But the only thing I bought was my breakfast.
The cafe made us laugh. Or more to the point the staff made us laugh. It was like granny was in the kitchen and she was in a foul mood. She was yelling at the staff, but nobody seemed to mind. It was like a scene out of a movie. You know the scene in a diner, with the gruff cook but good food.
My muffin was a little dry, nothing some butter didn't fix. Michelle ate all her breakfast so I'm assuming it was good.
We'd go back again. Food was good. Price was reasonable. And the entertainment was priceless.
