TofinoTime Readers' Choice Awards 2004


Thanks to everyone that took the time
to enter their ballots and congratulations
to all the winners.

Favourite event of 2004

Pouring rain and all the Lantern Festival was Tofino’s favourite event, with the Food and Wine Festival loved as well.

Favourite activity done while skipping work

There was an even tie here between surfing and lounging on the beach with getting inebriated on various substances coming in a strong second.

Favourite spot to watch the sunset

Far and above the rest Chesterman’s Beach is our favourite, with being out in the surf as the runner up.

Favourite place for a drink

The “Great Room” at the Long Beach Lodge was Tofino’s choice for a cocktail with Shelter showing a strong second.

Favourite escape

We were of two minds when it came to where to go when you need to get out. Tofino seems to either head to the mountains, or maybe Mexico.

Favourite place to be at 4:20

This was a bit of a loaded category… Our location of choice when 4:20 was pronounced was definitely the beach or secondly with the one ya love

Favourite spot for people watching

The downtown core seems to be our location of choice for this sporting activity with First & Campbell being the top choice and the Common Loaf second.

Favourite sporting activity

Well surprise, surprise, surprise the number one sporting activity in Tofino is surfing. Its closest rival was hiking.

Favourite place to relax

I’m starting to see a bit of a trend, it seems that we are definitely a beach culture, it is our favourite spot for relaxing with home as its runner up. Honourable mention goes to hot springs cove, which for many is the best place to truly unwind.

Favourite spa experience

The little glass pyramid on Chesterman’s where Therese Bouchard gives her treatments was Tofino’s favourite spa experience, with the Ancient Cedar Spa at the Wick a popular Second.

Favourite place to get in the water

A dip in Kennedy Lake was where Tofino chose to get in the water last year, or maybe a soothing soak in the hot springs.

Favourite place for coffee

Tofino’s choice for a good jolt of the liquid life was Caffe Vincente. The Tofitian came in as a runner up.

Favourite place for breakfast

The Schooner was our readers’ choice as the best place to have breakfast, with the Wick’s Pointe Restaurant in second.

Favourite place for lunch

Well the masses spoke with one voice SoBo! SoBo! SoBo! In all the categories there was nothing as definitive as Tofino’s choice of SoBo for lunch. The Schooner was our second choice, for those rare moments when a fish taco just didn’t seem right.

Favourite place for dinner

The Raincoast Café was Tofino’s choice for an evening of gastronomic adventure with the Schooner and Tough City Sushi equal favourite seconds.

Favourite place for dessert

Gord Austin’s Chocolate Tofino was your location of choice for a sweet treat, with The Great Room at the Long Beach Lodge as his closest rival.

Favourite wine list

The Pointe Restaurant at the Wickininnish Inn came in as Tofino’s preferred place for choosing a bottle, with the Café Pamplona following as a close second.

Favourite place for food on the go

There really wasn’t much of a question here, SoBo started off to an early lead and never looked back. The little purple truck took nearly all the votes in this field. The next closest source for a bite on the run was from Breakers Deli.

Favourite accommodation

When it came to recommending a place to stay while in our area Middle Beach Lodge was the strong choice with the unique, adventurous Innchanter in Hot Springs Cove a romantic second.

Favourite charter company

Ocean Outfitters was voted as your favourite with Jamie’s Whaling Station as a strong second place.

Favourite surf company

All of Tofino’s surf companies were supported strongly by the public with Long Beach Surf Shop being the most voted for and Storm a popular second.

Favourite gallery

The serene setting of the Eagle Aerie Gallery of Roy Henry Vickers was your artistic refuge, with the eclectic Lounge Collection as a loved second.

Favourite boutique

Enchanted was the most popular spot for buy something unique, with a trip upstairs to Plush a second favourite.

Favourite new business 2004

As we come through another Tofino winter it was clear in our minds what new business added the most to our lives this year. Thanks Mike for opening Groovy Movies and filling our homes with that blue glow. Sweet T’s was also much appreciated for opening up as well.

Thanks to everyone that took the time to enter their ballots and congratulations to all the winners.
