The Pointe Restaurant at The Wickaninnish Inn (Tofino)

If, for some weird reason, you ever find yourself wondering why you live in BC, I highly recommend a mini-getaway to Tofino. Breathtaking scenery hosting a multitude of outdoor activities combined with an adorable village and restaurants featuring a plentitude of local seafood will be enough to remind.

After several mornings of toast and peanut butter, we finished off our holiday with breakfast at the world-famous Wickaninnish Inn. The “point” of visiting The Pointe Restaurant is its precarious perch overlooking the spectacular Chesterman Beach. Of course, the morning we went it was fogged in (locals refer to this month as ”fogust”). Luckily we had just spent four glorious days in a cottage down the beach and already had our share of stunning views. Besides, the food was so delicious, it was still worth it.

Over the course of our trip, I enjoyed the freshest seafood in almost every way imaginable – seafood chowder, cod burger, fish tacos, prawn and scallop ceviche, seafood gumbo, salmon jerky. Therefore, I wanted to round out my seafood experience by having the Tofino Dungeness Crab Benedict. It was perfect, just like our time in Tofino.
