Foodie Friday ~ Eating on Vancouver Island

Welcome to Foodie Friday hosted at Designs by Gollum. Click on the logo to see more.


My husband, daughter and I spent Tuesday on Vancouver Island and we managed to eat well. From the Ferry in Sydney on our way to Butchart Gardens we stopped at a restaurant called The Roost which had great freshly made food. I opted for their sandwich special with Beet Borsch on the side. The sandwich was a chicken, cheese, basil, tomato, red onion and portabello mushroom. Dear had the same sandwich but with a Roasted Yam and cilantro soup. Katie ordered the 3 cheese quiche with a garden salad. We would go back to this spot if we ever ferry across from Anacortes to Sydney again. After we walked about Butchart Gardens and on our way into Victoria we stopped in Oak Bay and were happy to stumble upon the Penny Farthing where we enjoyed some traditional Fish & Chips and Lamb Stew. It’s too bad we had to be in the ferry line for 90 minutes prior to our trip back to the states or we could have fit in one more good meal on the Island!

Photobucket is holding all my photos that I stored on their site from 2007-2015 hostage replacing them with ugly grey and black boxes and asking for a large ransom to retrieve them. It is a slow process to go through all my posts deleting the ugly boxes.

  1. Most of my family and my husband’s family live on Vancouver Island. The gardens are very pretty even at Christmas time when they light everything up.
    There are some really great restaurants over there.
    I have been on the Anacortes ferry when we went to Rosario Resort many years ago. Now that was a great weekend.

  2. Hello Ellen, I was blog hopping looking on Foodie Friday, and saw your name, I have missed your blog, I did not have it in my blog roll, but now I do…hope all is well.

  3. OK, I managed to miss this post. The Penny Farthing! Do they serve anything other then Fish and Chips? I’m not a Fish person…yuk yuk yuk!!!!!
