Despite our crew having various food allergies, we found healthy and delicious meals and accommodating servers at all of these eateries along the West Koot Route.
Mook Thai: Authentic Thai food in a cool, historic Old Fire Hall building.
Caffè Gabriella: All of the traditional North American breakfast favorites and a few international twists.
The Grateful Table: Amazing Greek food with fresh veggies and plenty of gluten free and vegetarian choices.
Black Rooster Classic Bar & Grill: Canadian take on a wide range of classic North American meals, plus vegetarian and international options.
Frog Peak Café: Locally-sourced, fresh and delicious breakfast and lunch with amazing sandwiches, bowls, and salads with plenty of pleasant outdoor seating between Castelgar/Nelson and New Denver.
Ainsworth Hot Springs Resort
Ktunaxa Grill: Fresh, local, and indigenous inspired, the Cast Iron Pork Chop with a Saskatoon berry sauce and the gluten-free burger with locally-baked bun were two of the best things we’ve ever eaten at a restaurant anywhere.
Marzano Italian Restaurant: Excellent Italian food from chefs trained in Italy with an eye for high-quality ingredients. Highly recommended for the pizzas or pretty much anything on the menu.
Kootenay Co-op: The best place for local and organic ingredients, snacks, and other groceries as well as breakfast, lunch, and dinner available in the café.
