Best Caesar Salad in British Columbia
As we travel around British Columbia we often have a chance to try new restaurants and cafes in different towns throughout the province. Often when we order rather than having a green salad or fries with our meals we like try a Caesar salad instead.
The quest often becomes who in BC makes a good Caesar Salad. We are not talking about the high-end establishments of Vancouver rather the small independent operations that offer good value for the money.
The latest edition of a very good salad happens to come from a small cafe in the very small community of Salmo. The cafe is called the Dragon Fly and was recommended to us very highly by the park attendant from Champion Lakes Provincial Park.
Once we arrived at the Dragon Fly we could tell by the packed house that the food was going to be good. We were not disappointed, the chicken wrap and accompanying Caesar salad was excellent. This was a definite surprise and one that will have to be experienced again.
If you happen to be going through Salmo make a point of stopping at this quaint little cafe which is housed in the 1934 built Jas. R. Hunnex building. Not only does the Dragon Fly Cafe serve one of the best Caesar salads in British Columbia but also has free wireless internet and serves up Kicking Horse Coffee.
