With all the golf, mountain biking and hiking in the Pemberton Valley, you’ll need a big (healthy) breakfast to fuel you for the day ahead. With plenty of seating, you won’t have to wait long for a local to give up a seat at The Pony Espresso. Pemberton is known for its potato farms, and if you feel at all bad about ordering pan fries to try them, get The Veggie Bennie: Butter braised winter leeks, spinach and goat cheese replace traditional ham, a tasty mix of healthy indulgence.
