Dining and Nightlife
Totem is where the locals get breakfast, so it’s a great place to hear their stories before your day’s adventure. The food is nothing fancy — it’s standard breakfast fare — but it’s filling and hot. You’ll also find a full menu for lunch and dinner, including locally-caught seafood.
With amazing burgers in a casual, rustic setting. They grill up large, juicy, fresh patties and serve them with a heap of curly or traditional fries. You’ll also find great fish and chips, as well as salmon and halibut burgers. Linger over your meal or just grab it to go.
If you’re looking or Asian food, this is the only option in town, set in a great location one block off the harbor area. You’ll find several different types: the Chinese and Thai food can be hit or miss, but there’s consistently good (if expensive) sushi.
Adding a great water view to your meal always makes it taste better. And this café’s food is already good: order up gourmet burgers, sandwiches, soups, and while you look out at boats coming and going, unloading the day’s catch. There’s limited indoor seating, but you’ll want to sit outdoors anyway, dining on the rockfish tacos and the rich, chunky seafood chowder. You can also order your meal take-out and go find your own great view.
