Stockyards cafe serves 4-H sale

The Williams Lake Stockyards cafe is a going concern this week.

The Williams Lake Stockyards cafe is a going concern this week as owners Donna Bergen and Sabrina Dyck serve breakfast all day during the annual 4-H Show and Sale along with other homemade lunches and snacks.

The menu includes chicken fingers, soups,  wraps, salads, hamburgers, fries and onion rings, hot dogs,  and homemade pies and baking.

Bergen says they make their soups and baking from scratch and pride themselves on the homemade goodness of their   menu.

The duo took over the restaurant in February and also offer catering service.

The stockyards cafe is open regularly on weekdays from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., but is also open for special events on Saturdays and for schedules sales at the stockyards.

On those dates they stay and serve until the last animal is sold and everyone is ready to go home.

Most regular livestock sales are scheduled for Thursdays .

The next regular livestock sale at the Williams Lake Stockyards is coming up on Thursday, Aug. 27.

“We will be open until the last sale is done,” Bergen says.

On their counter you will also find a draw box for a $100 gift certificate to Cariboo Spurs.

The draw is  helping to raise funds for the Wildwood Fire Department which is building a training centre that will be used by all of the fire departments in the area, Dyck says.
