A great selection of local products with a fantastic staff member overseeing the shop and coffee bar, where we also indulged. My husband said it was the best Americano he has had. 😉

Fantastic locally run gallery, coffee shop, and gift store. Beautiful selection of jewelry, art, books, clothing, and other locally crafted goods. Also offer cultural tours which can be booked directly through the shop. Located very close to the ferry and U’mista Cultural Centre- look out for the beautiful and colourful murals!

Easy to find, and they have a coffee/tea shop!
Nice selection of gifts, reasonable pricing. If you grab a coffee - amazing view of the harbour, so take some extra time to sit and enjoy.
Staff was welcoming.

Grabbed a delicious mango smoothie to go- perfect way to cool off on a hot summer day as we walked back on the ferry!

My daughter, who was a barista herself for several years, ordered a mocha coffee when we stopped in. A lovely girl named Gwanti made the coffee and my daughter who is a coffee snob said it was the best mocha she ever had. It was a lovely seaside setting to have a great cup of coffee and would definitely recommend this place.

A lovely simple little coffee shop where you can sit outside overlooking the harbour at Alert Bay, plus a really nice range of First Nation gifts.

The Culture Shock is a beautiful location over the ocean to stop for a coffee or smoothie and pick up a unique gift. The staff is so great. I love going in and chattting with Arthur or Barb. An Alert Bay must go!

Been in a few times now. Barb the owner is a lovely lady and also a known film maker.
This shop has a local artist items for sale as well you can book some local tours from here.
If your looking for a great coffee or fresh smoothies you'll be in luck as this place also serves them up.
Short walk from the bc ferries down the board walk to the left.
Note: summertime open always... winter months are hit and miss for days open.
Cheers.
