Came here for brunch. The food was very good and cooked to how it was asked. The coffee was great. The server unfortunately when asked about what kind of places may be open on a Sunday said quite short "I don't know, you have to call around." And walked away abruptly. Home fries are good but could be cut a... More

...a visit to the Tree-House is a must! Been here about 5 times now and it's always been great. Plan to go when there's live music, get some local fare, and be ready to thoroughly enjoy yourself!

Such a neat little restaurant in the heart of Salt Spring Island. Delicious comfort food and awesome atmosphere as they have added on to the original tiny restaurant and built around a huge tree. I think it was rated #1 for Salt Spring for restaurants, but don't quote me.

Stumbled across this absolute gem of a restaurant. Such a great, healthy but really tasty menu. Had 2 different Mexican breakfasts, the home made black beans are a definite winner, as was the matcha latte. Plenty of blankets and little heaters to help you warm up even if it looks a little chilly (I was sceptical!) and the staff are... More

We have been before and were not disappointed this time. Eggs, bacon and beans are the best. Door stop sized bread slices. Service is friendly. It was pouring with rain but the place is cozy - and can be made cozier by blankets if you need them

This is a charming spot for lunch. Food quality is good and servings are generous. Service is a bit slow but think island time and you will enjoy.

Based on the reviews I read ,I expected good service and food. Both were extremely disappointing. The service, if we can call it that , was close to being non-existent. First , we waited 20 minutes to get a table, which we were understanding about because it was busy. we thought it would be worth the wait. We then waited... More
