The Deluxe General Store & Commodore Café

The Deluxe Café and Boarding House was constructed in 1935 across the street from its main competition, The Commodore Café (could also have been called the Welcome Café at one stage). The Deluxe was owned and operated by Wing, a descendant of a Chinese Cariboo miner. It was bought by Louis Hong in the 40šs and operated as the Deluxe General Store. At one time it also contained the liquor store.

Today the Deluxe Cafe has been moved across the street, and sits facing the Wells Hotel.

The Commodore Café was later dismantled and the timber was shipped to Prince George for construction.
