The Rusted Rake in Nanoose

Having driven by THE RUSTED RAKE Restaurant in Nanoose many times, we decided that today we would give it a try. We arrived just before 1:00 and found the place nearly full. No tables left so we sat at the bar. Well it’s like a bar without liquor. No beer or wine here yet. Maybe by the fall they say. Too bad.

One orders at the counter here. Mostly soups, salads & sandwiches. We chose to share the Pastrami Sandwich with an order of Cole slaw and two Cappuccinos . The food was very good but for $15.50 a sandwich better be good. Everything is made to order so the food delivery was slow.

The room is bright with lots of big windows, a fireplace and in summer a patio. It is large and noisy. The acoustics are such that is annoyingly noisy. For that reason and the lack of wine it will be a while before we go back.

However, if you are interested, here is the sandwich board.y


No website but they are on Facebook. This joint is on Northwest Bay Road in Nanoose. Turn at the Petrocan station on Highway 19 and it’s a few hundred yards down the road.

just saying…
