We're headed to Gabriola Island and then on to Tofino on Labor Day weekend. We're staying at the Wick and have a reservation there for a late dinner on Sunday evening. I've read all of the message boards, so I know about SoBa, Shelter, Pasticceria Conradi. Is Rain Coast still a going concern? I couldn't connect to the website. No one is writing about Tough City Sushi--is it still there and good?
Where can we get a great lunch on the drive to Tofino from Nanaimo? Is there an easy, casual place to stop in Port Alberni (sp?) perhaps?
Is there a place in Tofino to get a great box lunch to take kayaking with us?
Any recs for farmers markets in Tofino or Gabe?
Any restaurant recommendatons on Gabriola?
Any other casual, fun recommendations are welcome. Thanks in advance!
