This is a hole in the wall- not even a loo. Located across from a Starbuck's, and the very antithesis. Home made soups, scones, muffins, GF cookies, and good teas and coffee. People seem to arrive in small herds, and I groaned inwardly at the...More

Stopped here for a light snack and a coffee. All the food looked delicious. Mellow, casusal vibe and friendly service. We enjoyed out food outside in the sun on the little atop space. Close walk to the beach if desired.

We found this a nice casual spot to grab a drink and a snack. Easy to grab it from here and eat/drink it while walking cadboro beach. There are minimal meal and salad options too.

Lovely people working here and you can drink you coffee in a friendly relaxed atmosphere. Nice goodies as well. Coffee and tea cups are heated before pouring in your beverage. Especially like the breakfast burritos with salsa. Nice range of gluten free products as well....More

Looking for an alternative to the chain coffee shops? Check out Olive Olio's. Great neighbourhood coffee shop. A nice place to enjoy an espresso and do a crossword. Relaxed atmosphere, and tasty bakery options.

If you like an old-fashion spot with good coffee, sandwiches and pasta served by local folks with a smile, this is the place. It's a bit funky and the experience can be unpredictable but that's its appeal and charm. What is predictable is that you...More
