You never know who you will run into at this community hub that fills up with locals, hotel guests and other visitors to Steveston.
In addition to being a great place to have an authentic and casual dining experience, you will be served a generous portion by some of the friendliest servers in the village. No matter how busy the restaurant is these pros always have time for a smile and never appear rushed. Four of the staff have been working at the restaurant for over 10 years. One of the kitchen staff has been loyal to the business for 16 years.
Karina Gaziri is general manager of both the Steveston Cafe and the Buck & Ear. Most of her time is spent in the pub although she oversees the cafe’s operations and schedule.
She says, “The most satisfying part of my job is working with an amazing staff and a company that appreciates the job I do.”
The cafe completed its renovations in early 2018. A new wall encloses the space from the hotel lobby and the liquor store entrance.
The restaurant gained two large south facing windows, which not only brightens the room but also offers a view of the neighbouring Gulf of Georgia Cannery and a nice perspective looking out to Moncton Street. New flooring and artwork also refresh the look.
The menu has been pared down but still offers plenty of choices and the best-loved favourites remain.
The cleverly named Steveston Scramble (with a nod to the intersection sharing the same name) is a hearty meal consisting of scrambled eggs, your choice of French toast or pancakes along with bacon and sausages.
The Fisherman’s Breakfast is another popular choice and will fill you up with three eggs, bacon, sausages, hash browns, pancakes or toast. The Hash Plate feature two choices, either veggie or corned beef, and is served with poached eggs, hollandaise sauce and toast.
The early bird catches the worm and also catches the Early Bird breakfast. Served on weekdays before 10:00 a.m., this special consists of two eggs, bacon or sausages, hash browns, and toast for a low $7.
Open from 7:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. daily, Steveston Cafe is home to the all day breakfast. Lunch options include fish and chips, sandwiches, beef dip, burgers, and daily specials.
