Great homely feel and good food. Friendly service and nice area for kids to play outside if you need to break a journey. Would really recommend if you are travelling to and from Keji. Good value, we would go again!

We stopped for breakfast on our way to Halifax and had the best food and service around! At the time we were the only couples in the place and were served immediately. My husband and brother asked for gravy which wasn't on the menu (southern...More

Although this was a pre-arranged morning coffee stop our tour manager was a little concerned how the Hollow Log would cope with 32 people arriving together. He need not have feared as we were all served very quickly with our drinks. Travellers need to be...More

Stopped in here for lunch. This place has all the hallmarks of a great roadside cafe but didn't really deliver. We had fish and chips, and chili. Both were good but nothing special. Service was slow and our young server was not particularly friendly or...More

I had the haddock chowder, fish N Chips and Lemon Pie. Yum. All were excellent in a homey setting. This is near Keji National Park.

Had dinner here when we were tired of being rained in at Keji National Park. Food was simple and good. Hamburgers were the best. We had expected fabulous desserts and the pies were disappointing - average at best.

The Hollow Log café is a bit out of the way , but worth the drive for the pie alone. All the pies are homemade and the blueberries were picked fresh, can't get any better than that.

The Hollow Log Cafe is clean and open. The logging industry memorabilia around the walls is a neat curiosity. The instruments are on stand by for an adhoc performance which apparently happens often on summer evenings. The food was excellent quality and the service very...More

It's family owned and super friendly. It's always a great place to grab a bite to eat. Their food is incredible and the service never fails. The prices are great for the serving sizes you receive.
