Everything here is from scratch. The large pot of coffee out back tends not to be very strong so if you want a... More

I have been riding the Gold River, Campbell River highway (14) for two years now and have never been disappointed, expresso, Tuna salad sandwich, muffins, bergers and the rubarb pie is amazing! I ride to the Uptown Cafe once a week and see what Sharon has baked for the day. Really down to earth.
