After 12 years in business, Tofino’s excellent Raincoast Cafe is closing.

From the Westcoaster:

TOFINO — A critically acclaimed Tofino restaurant will close it doors at month’s end following nearly 12 years in business.

The RainCoast Café, which has received positive reviews in publications like the Vancouver Sun, Vancouver Magazine and Best Places in the Northwest, will hold its final dinner service New Year’s Eve.

“It’s had a good run,” said Larry Nicolay, who co-owns the café with partner Lisa Henderson. “Our hearts [are] in Tofino, but we have to do different things for the family.”

Best of luck in Vancouver Larry and Lisa!

    We wish Lisa and Larry well on their future plans. raincoast was one of our favorites in town. I believe there is another restaurant going into the space with a different name, possibly someone from Vancouver?
