Tahiti treat

Tahitian Restaurant was a popular place between Chemainus and Crofton

Sometimes we forget what buildings used to stand at various locations around the Chemainus Valley.

Here’s one for nostalgia buffs and a glimpse into the past for the younger generation: the Tahitian Restaurant that used to stand at the corner of Chemainus and Crofton Roads. It was one of the great theme restaurants of its time.

Early followers of rec hockey in the Valley will also remember the restaurant sponsored a team called the Tahitian Natives in the rec league at Fuller Lake Arena.
