Road Trippin' - Kamloops, Victoria, Abbotsford, Chiliwack, Hope Suggestions?

taiphun | Jun 25, 201106:32 PM     10

Hi all,

Going on a road trip from Edmonton to Jasper to Kamloops to Abbotsford then a jaunt in the US, then back around to Victoria. We go to Vancouver often enough so I'm gonna leave that out.

Are there any roadside diners or restaurants of note on the Highway #5 from Robson down to Hope, BC?

Also, been a while since we're in Victoria.. but Cafe Brio and Red Fish Blue Fish are on our list. Any other noteworthy suggestions? Do they still serve afternoon tea at the Empress Hotel?

Lastly, are there any noteworthy BC wines or beers from the microbreweries worth bringing home? I'd like to pick up a case of Joie Noble Blend.. (I went to high school with Heidi Noble :) )

Much thanks..
