We stayed at the Prestige resort for 2 nights and visited Junipers the first morning for breakfast. I am so glad that only my husband had to eat before his conference, because I ended up stopping at Safeway to get breakfast for the rest of us. He had the huge yogurt cup, a bagel with cream cheese and a hot... More

Always great service . Try the barnyard breakfast bun or the homemade muffins. Also they use the best chocolate for their mocha.

Cozy in inside nice outside deck with great coffee and muffins breakfast/lunch items. Clearly a local favourite visited by many locals and the owner is often on site. It has the touch of being in someone houses yet it is attached to one of the nicest resorts in the area by the lake.

We spent a week at the Prestige Inn where the bistro is located. A must each morning was to have a coffee and muffin for breakfast. Hot and great variety of muffins was a great treat to the day. Sandwiches were a nice lunch addition too. The staff at the bistro were fantastic. A friendly smile, conversation, and helpful hints... More

Perfect location for coffee with a view. Very friendly staff! I always leave with a smile. I suggest a coffee then a walk over to the pier while the lake is like glass. Makes my day start right.

Stopped in for coffee and a homemade muffin. Great coffee and the muffin was one of the best I have had. Chock full of berries and still warm from the oven. The lady who served me was so nice and genuinely appreciated my business. Will definitely go back there.

Our family enjoyed the best breakfast we have had in BC including great coffee, waffles with secret ingredients and sensational blueberry muffins absolutely loaded with berries. Dave and his father in law Walt are super friendly people who take a genuine interest in their customers and the quality of food prepared. Thanks for a great BC experience Dave, much appreciated.

OK so I don't know what kind of a day she/he was having, but I can't see how when I walked into the place and said to the server, "How are you today?" what sort of negativism I set off with that? The place and was empty, so my next comment was , said jokingly..." I see business is 'brisk'... More

No kidding...plus great coffee and conversation with Dave, the owner, in a comfortable and casual environment. Don't pass up a chance to have breakfast as Junipers.
