Things are decidedly laid-back in southeast B.C.’s Slocan Valley, labeled Slow As You Can by locals.
So we’re quite prepared for leisurely service at Mama Sita’s Cafe, a colourful, highway-side spot in tiny Winlaw. We use the time, after ordering, to soak in the culture, such as folks in dreadlocks wandering in and out of the attached natural foods co-op.
Still, we’ve just completed a punishing, six-day backpack in nearby Valhalla Provincial Park and are rather famished. Thus, we’re pleasantly surprised when our server promptly delivers teeming, affordable plates of taco salads and burgers fashioned from local, organic beef.
It’s all good stuff, wolfed down in record time. No way I’m going slow as I can.
