Magpie's Diner's Now in Cranberry

https://www.facebook.com/pages/Magpies-Diner/149204638520098I have a friend in Powell River that's also named Margaret. We both have float cabins up the lake, and they were both built by our friend John.  Margaret and her husband Art are the proud owners of a very popular restaurant named Magpie's Diner.

Margaret started Magpie's Diner on Glacier Street. When that location became too small, she moved to the Townsite's historic Rodmay Hotel and reopened it's cafe as Magpie's Diner. This year, Magpie's has moved once again, to an even larger space in the community of Cranberry.

Magpie's Diner serves breakfast and lunch seven days a week from 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. We like to stop for breakfast when we are heading into town.

We usually order the same thing, a cheese omelet with a side of spicy chorizo sausage for Wayne, and the Not-So-Big Big Breakfast for me with one egg, breakfast meats, homemade hash browns, and toast. But everything on the menu is great from all day breakfasts, to Bennies, salads, sandwiches, burgers, and homemade desserts. You can even get a bottle of Townsite beer to go with your meal.

I love the new location. The building is an historic structure that housed Wilshire's Store. The old counter and stools are still in use. Margaret invites local artists to display on her walls, and she uses local produce and products whenever possible.

If you live in Powell River, I'm sure you already know about Magpie's Diner. If you are coming for a visit, make sure it's part of your travel plans. -- Margy

    That looks like a wonderful diner ... diners always have the best food.

  3. Margaret has had a great restaurant in all three locations, but they just are getting better and better with each move. - Margy
