Our journey began in 2017 at the Water St. Cafe in Vancouver as a small family-run restaurant with a strong sense of community. We had a desire to support local vendors, products, musicians, and, of course, wine. We sought unique varietals and in the process delved into the beauty that is BC wine.
Our quest to find the best that our BC wineries have to offer has taken us all across BC from the Okanagan to Similkameen Valley, Lake Country to Vancouver Island, and more. We’ve created connections with grape growers, winemakers, reps, and fellow wine lovers who are all as passionate as we are about this incredible industry. This journey has brought us to this exciting moment: we are proud to share that the Qualicum Beach Cafe has been honoured as a recipient of the Wine Spectator’s Award of Excellence for 2023.
We have dedicated ourselves to bring the Best of BC to our guests so that they may pour, swirl, sip, and enjoy their own wine journey along with us. We continue to commit ourselves to learning all we can to offer our guests the ultimate BC Wine Experience. Our Team has taken both Level 1 and Level 2 of the Wine Ambassador Program with Wines of BC.
Our restaurant family has grown, and our passion for wine with it. We will continue on this journey with each and every guest, showcasing the Best of BC with every glass!
