This place really gets the Tofino vibe right! Excellent food and coffee...friendly staff...a welcome refuge from the pain and glory of cold water surfing.

Great great coffee and moka!! I also had a Thai latte and this one was less interesting than their coffee specialities. They are now growing the space. The goodies (we tried four of them) were also very delicious!!

Made it just under the wire as the cafe was closing at 3:00pm. We were able to get Americanos and some sweet treats. Friendly service and even better coffee and treats. Good prices. Would only change the hours as closing at 3:00pm on a Tuesday is a little early !!

Just popped in to grab a fresh made coffee. I've got a busy life, drink lots of fair trade good coffee only. Well, it this place I got a luke warm cup of milk instead a double shot hot mocha. Unfriendly service too. One time, never again. Waste of money.

Tofitan is often busy and is easily the best coffee outside of the town itself (and would certainly make the Tofino Top 3 for espresso). Cash only, but there is an ATM near the surf shop.

We just stopped in for coffee. It was convienent as we didn't want to head into Tofino downtown and we were staying just up the road at the campsite.

We love the barista Sara who was super friendly and efficient in her delivery of gorgeous Coffee. Get there early as it takes a while to get all the orders done. SO worth the wait. Great internet while you sip coffee under the gazebo.

The service was the lowlight, the person who served us gave the impression that they did not want to be there. The drink was fine but over shadowed by the grumpy server

Stopped here while en route to 'downtown' Tofino. Busy little place which is a good sign. Decent espresso, and very good herbal tea. This place supports local.
