Canada Cafe

Reviewed By Klindatheau1972 - Merritt, Canada

I usually eat here as i cannot get a dinner for 3 or a dinner for 4 at such a reasonable price. The owner and his wife have been at this location for just over a year. Denis is the owners name and he is very easy going. Usually very quiet and if your looking for fast service to get back on the road. It is worth it to take a 5 minute detour to eat here.
Plus "No MSG"!

Coldwater Cafe

Reviewed By carliewired - Kamloops

My hubby and I went for a drive to enjoy our near spring weather. Stopped here for dinner as we've done before. I ordered the Turkey dinner, my hubby had the cutlets. Generous portions and tasty meals. Great service. For an old hotel, they do rather well.

Stayed over night at a Day Inn
hotel and this diner was within walking distance. What a beautiful find. All home made favorites from meat loaf to liver & onions to home made array of pies! Price was also very reasonable and was their portions. Service was very friendly. The next time were are enroute from Alberta to Vancouver, this place will be our go to place for a good meal.

Yaki Joe's Pizza Shop

Yaki Joe's Pizza is locally owned and independently operated by Sonya and Bobby Garcia. When they took over Yaki Joe's in 2007, they made inviting changes to decor and extensive changes to menu, including fresh and homemade. But those are only 2 of the elements that make Yaki Joe's in Merritt stand alone in the Pizza making business. Recommended for its extraordinary pizzas, Yaki Joe's is also being recognized for its excellence in food quality and taste. No matter what you're ordering off their menu, fresh is the order of the day, and handmade is the must, right down to the washing and slicing of vegetables, cooking and slicing of meats, and grating of cheeses. There's nothing "packaged" about this restaurant and there's no scrimping with ingredients or on portion sizes. Bobby and Sonya know that if they compromise with the ingredients they put the integrity of the recipe at risk and jeopardize the satisfaction of the customer - and that's why Yaki Joe's fan base has been steadily growing yearly. Our pizza and calzone menu is extensive, our 11 tasty varieties of wings are "the best" as our regular friends and customers tell us, and our pasta sauce is a family recipe that Sonya has honed to lip-smacking perfection. If you want something lighter but still heavy on taste, try a wrap or donair and a salad. Our fresh ingredients ensure that everything is ripe with flavour.

Yaki 's is a great place for pizzas and calzones. Always fresh and hot. Not a lot of room for dining in but we always go for Takeout as we live in Merritt.

Reviewed By Paul S

I've been going here on and off for years. The standard is met every time. In of all places who knew Merritt BC is literally home to the best sushi in the province. Prices are sort of high but it's definitely worth. From first dates, to anniversaries or dinner with friends you can't go wrong at this place. If you're passing through on your way to somewhere, do yourself a favour a take a pit stop here. Happy eating.

The Grand Pub & Grill was exactly what I'd hoped it would be. Located off the main thoroughfare in Merritt, the location was easy to find and parking was readily available. The ambiance inside was great: cool bartender, sports memorabilia, community photos, sports on every TV, and locals. I went with a local beer from Penticton and one of my all-time favorite "easy to make" dinners: hamburger steak with mashed potatoes & gravy. As hungry as I was, everything sounded good, but I was swayed by the lean ground beef and hand-formed patties. I used the time before my meal to admire some of the old black & white photos adorning the walls and the bartender not only came by to chitchat, but filled me in on the history behind the pictures- very cool.
When my meal arrived, I was happy to see that my salad greens were fresh and crisp, my mashed-potatoes had been recently prepared (and not from a box!), and my hamburger steak was perfectly cooked. Portions were just right and I enjoyed every bit of my simple, but well-executed meal. Several of the staff and some of the locals invited me out for karaoke afterward, but with a head cold and an early morning the next day I had to pass. I paid the bill and headed to my hotel for the night a happy camper. I'm looking forward to my next trip through Merritt already; we'll see what kind of pipes they're working with! :)

Reviewed By Quakeup - Victoria, Canada

Mondolin's a centrally located place beside the main grocery store and liquour store to pick up a Seattle's Best coffee and check email. The staff are welcoming and friendly. The roast veggie panini was so-so, and I prefer a much more hearty dark roast.

Hitch'N'Post

Reviewed By TinyPaperUmbrella - Fort St. John, Canada

We went for breakfast this morning. I had an omelet and my wife had bacon and eggs.
The portions were good, the food was hot and the service was prompt.
We would recommend the restaurant to those passing through Lower Nicola.
The big problem we had was where TripAdvisor locates this restaurant on their map. The TripAdvisor map shows this restaurant IN Merritt on the east side of town. This is not correct! To find this restaurant you travel WEST out of Merritt into Lower Nicola. It is just west of the 'Courtesy Corner' intersection. This really needs to be fixed on TripAdvisor's map as it is not fair to the restaurant or users of TripAdvisor.
