Stopped off on the way to BC. Awesome breakfast. Had the only omelette and partner had the breakfast burrito. Both very good. Highly recommended with a continuous line up.

The breakfast was delicious. The Summit is located off the main drag but just minutes from the center of town. This is a great place to slow down the pace and enjoy breakfast with a view. I recommend trying the cinnamon roll.
