Family owned and run for over 20 years. That it has lasted this long is testament to their excellent food and service. Here on vacation we were surprised the owner was, due to credit card issues, willing to let us leave and trust to return two days hence to pay our $100 bill.

Large portions and the best breakfast! The bacon is the absolute best you will ever have. We asked if there was a butcher in town we could get the bacon and sausages from so we could take home :) can't wait to come back!

On a rainy November afternoon, we stopped in for a bowl of seafood chowder and some warm, freshly baked brown bread with butter. The soup had a thick cream base, and was loaded with scallops, fish, shrimp, corn, and vegetables. It was the only food we ordered, and it was delicious.

We had a spectacular breakfast but be prepared to wait. Everything is handmade, including the bread, and well worth the time spent.

Had a very nice meal. Cozy environment. Good portion size. We were late, but they accommodated us. We were able to have a drink and walk back to our accommodation.

Popped in for lunch after hiking. Soups were home made and tasty. The fresh bread was excellent! Our waitress was delightful and fun to chat with.

This house has a remarkable history that had several owners! (1931) Serving breakfast, lunch, dinner, fresh baking, varied menu and offering a large outdoor patio. The Matterson House has "the best breakfast Ucluelet has to offer"..The hosts are very friendly and interested in the customers.
