I’m expecting to feed my mind more than my body when I walk into Bacchus Books & Cafe, a two-storey yellow building along the Kicking Horse River in downtown Golden, B.C. Things aren’t looking much more promising as I mount creaky stairs to a tiny, open kitchen ringed with a few tables and two walls of used books.

Great, complex salad at Bacchus

But this is where the culinary magic takes place. Niki Dusseault and a couple of staff are pulling fabulous chocolate zucchini muffins from the oven and pureeing cooked vegetables to make the spicy sauce for a Buddah Bowl salad atop warm basmati rice. On another counter, a turkey wrap with Brie and apple is being assembled and thick, made-from-scratch soup ladled into big bowls.

It’s all fabulous, healthy stuff.

There are fine books as well as food at Bacchus

    Hey Bill, when I didn’t hear from you, I thought — oh well, these MM blog morsels are just pre-digested material from a 2012 coastal road trip.
    But actually, I think, maybe, you were operating on meal-time (i.e., real-time)…. and you and Helen actually were in Victoria recently.
