West Koot Route Cuisine

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.

Crescent Valley

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.
