I did a double-take when I saw the sign. I thought it was a gag sign that someone put up.
To my surprise "Sleep Is For Sissies" is actually the name of an eatery. I was hungry enough that I thought I would check it out.
This is where things got a little odd. I checked out the menu before going in. It was your usual fare. I was one of only five customers. My waitress was dressed like she was going off to what I think might be a Wiccan ceremony later. She looked like she had a crescent moon tattooed on her forehead. She also did not seem too interested in her job. A guy came out from somewhere to stock up supplies and clean dishes who looked like he crawled out from under a rock.
It took a bit of a wait to get my order which I found surprising since all I ordered was a clubhouse and a draught beer. By the way the Nelson Brewing Company makes excellent beer. If you are ever in the area order it. When I got my food I have to admit it was fantastic. I have no idea what they did but I have never had a sandwich taste this good. On my way out I made a point of telling the cook that the food was amazing. She seemed indifferent to what I said.
This is a neat little spot and if I am ever back in the area I would go back just because the food was so good. The service was bizarre. If I owned or managed this place I think I would put up fake road construction detour signs to divert traffic here. The odd thing is that I stopped for food or just coffee at a couple of places in the Kootenays and encountered service where the attitude seemed to be that you were not good enough to be there. I did not understand it. If I had a business in the hospitality trade I would be treating customers like gold to separate them from their money.
