Great coffee and lattes but the Egg-a-majig was the kicker, very very tasty! Loved this place with nice memorabilia decor throughout made it a friendly and relaxed place to enjoy yourself.

Thank Ryanc0ke
Management response:

Thanks so much for the positive review! Glad you liked our Egg-a-majig, that sucker is indigenous to The Stick made with local free range eggs and a list of other delish things, too long to get into. Hope to see you again soon. More

The locals recommended this as a great spot for breakfast. We are both vegetarians so it was a great find because there was ample choice. The special Chai tea is great.

This is a great coffee shop. Charming, arty, with great coffee and snacks. Good vegan/vegetarian food. Nice servers. The best thing is that they roast their own beans in a little glassed-in cubicle at the back. The roaster-man gave me a short tour of the process: they have beans from everywhere! Very genuine, very interesting. Be sure to stop here... More

Have stopped in a couple times for breaky and coffees. Love it. Once had a mix up and forgot our order. They made it up! Sincere people. Would recommend.

Thank hondapassport
Management response:

Hey! Thanks for the kind words. We truly appreciate hearing that you like The Stick. Also, SO sorry for the mix up with your order. We are putting a few new systems in place in order to be ready for our busier times this year, I wonder if you came in on one of those Difficult Transition Days?! David More

dropped in for a quick bite and coffee, was not disappointed. Parking was on the street. There is an outdoor patio now. It appears that the place expanded with at least 5 more tables. Food was locally made. Coffee was roasted on site and for sale by the pound.

We love locally owned independent coffee shops (esp since we own one) and this is a very unique, obviously popular community place with excellent coffee; skilled barista with nice people skills. We will make this our stop for coffee when we are in the area.

Lattes are always cold. Definitely have had better. Location not easiest to find if you're a visitor/tourist to Sooke.

Very cool little coffee shop. It couldn't be more representative of the what a coffee shop should be in Sooke. They roast their own very good coffee and the food and service are great. Nice spot
