Julie's Airport Cafe in Powell River, BC

Julie's Airport Cafe in Powell River, BC
I wrote about Julie's Airport Cafe back in 2011 when she first opened. I've known Julie since she was a server at the Marine Inn and then Kane's here in Powell River. Julie had a dream of opening a restaurant of her own, and from the beginning it's been a success.

The original name was Julie's Airport Market and Grill. There's no longer a market so Julie can focus on what she does best, make some of the best food in town.

Wayne and I went for breakfast and were blown away at Julie's remodel. Wow!

But I'm sure glad she kept the airplane theme.

Julie's is open seven days a week for breakfast and lunch. You never know who you'll find at the next table, a neighbour, a local bigwig, or someone who just flew in to get some good eats.

On a recent visit we discovered a unique "table." It's part art and also a place to sit and eat. It was created by O.C. "Dobie" Dobrostanski, the artist from Dogwood Studio on nearby Texada Island.

The fuselage of the airplane is a wall mural, but the wing and tail are tables where customers can sit and enjoy breakfast or lunch. How cool is that?

Hand painted giant saw blade and helicopter rotor blade over the door.

The walls and ceiling of Julie's are covered with aviation pictures and aircraft models.

If you live in or visit Powell River, you've got try Julie's for a tasty breakfast or lunch. Then head on over to the airport and watch some real airplanes take off and land. -- Margy
