My first two visits to this location were to the Rain Coast Cafe and this was our first time to the Spotted Bear. It was a quiet evening and we enjoyed the intimate setting. It is impressive what the chef can do in such a tiny kitchen. The food didn't knock our socks off--Sobo was tastier--but the setting beat Sobo by a long shot. And the food was very good, just not super flavourful. We had beet salad and shepherd's pie.
