Some of our readers are former mainlanders and may recall the restaurant in Snug Cove on Bowen Island that we really enjoyed. Blue Eyed Mary’s. Steven & Carol, the owners, closed that successful little jewel and reopened in West Vancouver. They closed that location some time ago vowing to avoid the restaurant business in the future.
Well, times change and so have Steven & Carol. In late June they are opening FRANKIE JO’S SMALL BATCH CAFE in Courtenay. It will be a daytime Bakery Cafe featuring Carol’s great baking and cooking. As I recall, Carol previously was a pastry chef at Bishop’s in Vancouver. If her food is anything like she served up at Blue Eyed Mary’s, it will be well worth the drive to Courtenay for lunch.
They have a Facebook Page, FRANKIEJO’S BAKERY CAFE. Food on Vancouver Island just keeps getting better!
We are looking forward to seeing Steven & Carol again. They are a charming couple.
