The Café at John Henry’s

Opened in May 2016, The Café at John Henry’s offers a unique oceanfront dining experience. The Café features indoor (14 seats) and outdoor seating (28 seats).

The outdoor deck was created by cantilevering an over-the-ocean deck off our strong John Henry’s General Store building. In October 2016 a louvered roof system was added over most of the deck, which helps to screen the sun on hot days and prevents the rain from coming through on other days.

The Café is licensed and serves beer and wine.

It faces West, with a view that extends past the entrance to Pender Harbour. Please note we have spectacular sunsets, which are very visible and stunning from the Café, inside or out. We think our Café offers one of the best Sunshine Coast waterfront views and dining options.

Effective August 15, 2017 the Café hours will be:

8am to 8pm, Thursday through Monday, serving Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner.

Also, the Cafe will be closed Thursday, August 17 for much needed maintenance.

Due to a serious staff shortage and the fact that our Cafe business has grown by over 300% this summer, we have had to take action to ensure our service and the quality of the food we offer remain high. Our very dedicated staff are prepared to do "what it takes", but they also need 2 days off. We are committed to supporting our staff to lead healthy, balanced lives.

Outside summer months, please contact the Café for operating hours: 604-883-2336, Ext. 3.
