Where to Get the Best Tofino Breakfast
Rhino Coffee House
You will know it when you see the line out the door in the mornings. Let me tell you, the “Bro”Nut breakfast sandwich from Rhino is one of the best breakfasts in Tofino! An in-house-made donut sandwiches each side of a fried egg, cheddar cheese, bacon/ham/sausage, lettuce, and tomato! Making donuts fresh each morning puts this place over the top! There are other breakfast and lunch options, but you have to try the “Bro”Nut at least once! Get some donuts while you are there as selection becomes limited on busy afternoons.
