Stopped in for lunch on our way to Kamloops and found this little gem. They had a great selection of gluten free/friendly items, including a chocolate torte.

We went there for lunch on the 12th of September. The restaurant is situated by Dutch Lake and has a calm and peaceful ambience. The food is good with an adequate portion. Was great to have lunch there in the midst of our drive
