Very busy spot as the both the locals and the tourist stop here. The line moves very quick and staff are super happy. The coffee and pastries were fabulous unfortunately. the hot chocolate was not very good as it tasted more like warm milk and...lacking much chocolateMore

Amazing hidden gem, well worth the drive to enjoy this cafe. You will not be disappointed. Arrive before 10 am as it gets busy…even if busy the team there is extremely efficient so don’t panic when you see the line.

Coffee was good and the muffins were delicious. We were greeted by a nice women who took our order however I only have 4 stars because the young lady making coffee was rude, more focused on chatting with coworkers than doing her job

Arriving after recommendations we were sad to hear the kitchen had closed a few minutes earlier at 2pm. Browyn however made our visit so special, she recommended the sausage roll and lemon seed muffin. These did not disappoint, the lemon seed muffin, has to be...one of the best I’ve tasted. Browyn was so charming, and definitely a great asset to the business, she made us want to visit again.More

I read that this placed #36 in best food and interesting ambiance in all of Canada (Take that, Toronto!) When I have visitors or am too lazy to make lunch I head to Shirley. The staff are friendly and fun and the food is really...good. My vegan son always finds delicious options and I usually go for home made soups and bread. They close at 3 pm so don't go for dinner.More

This was such a cute place! Great food and coffee, my fiancé and I both had the breakfast burritos which were fresh and yummy. They have a really cool patio with local artwork displayed in the back. I ended up buying a really cool ring...and some local artisan postcards. Afterwards went to visit the Sheridan lighthouse which is really close by. Staff was super friendly. Would highly recommend, plus there really aren’t that many options for food in the area…More

At the end of a 2 month solo Moto trip trough the vc.Island backcountry I had a camp spot at Jordan River. Well cash only the ranger told me and yes I had no Canadian cash. (bear with me here) Jordan river is not a...bustling area and cash back is not an option there. I heard far up North from some people about a place called Shirley Delicious and I have to see it. Well I am close to Shirley so let’s find “delicious “as well hopefully some cash back . I almost missed it in the turn and I arrived at a nice well kept A-frame with parking but quite full with a line out the door . Either a tourist trap or the real thing . Well in line I watched the Szene. All matched and clockwork as it’s best , a smooth operation with highly engaged professional , efficient staff and a fun atmosphere even with a line out the door. Clean , crisp , local art , logic on the service flow and system , baristas know what they are doing and yes all looks delicious. All staff was a happy professional team serving customers and having fun . The place is happening . I finally got to order and payed with ccard. I asked if we can do cash back and the counter server told me they stopped doing that about 8 years ago . BUMMER . But I totally get it . Well Sook here I come. In waiting for my coffee , I put into the GPS the Sook coordinates when the Barista called my name and handed me my coffee and 10 $ Canadians. Well speechless is not in my repertoire and I asked what’s all about ? I wanted you to have a great weekend and I am happy to make sure you have the funds -the Barista blond with glasses told me . WELL HERE IS WHERE SPEECHLESS GOT HOLD ON ME. After recovery I argued I cannot do this , WELL THATS ALL IN GOOD KARMA was the answer. SPEECHLESS GOT HOLD ON ME AGAIN . After recovery we made an $ usd -$can exchange to a very favorable rate and I was on my way . Clearly humbled and taken I had an excellent pastry, sandwich and enjoyed the Ambiente of this restaurant and it’s people. But mostly this gracious gesture I just encountered in my long years of travels was quite elevating and humbling at the same time. In being in the restaurant , hotel and hospitality business for 45 years I know how hard it is to make it happening . The ownership and the Crew for sure are stars on the sky , but one of this stars has an special bright sparkle . Keep it up Carry on onward you go young lady . Thank you .More

We hit this little place on our way back from traveling up the Juan De Fuca coastline and was the highlight of our morning. The pistachio chocolate crescent was fantastic. The cappuccino and chia latte great! I had the Breaky Bun (breakfast sandwich) and my...hubby had the breakfast burrito both really good and all items well worth the money. The atmosphere is laid back indoor and outdoor sitting with tables / umbrellas. Has a hippie vibe with gluten free and vegan options. I would definitely recommend this as one of your spots along the way.More

You cannot visit the west coast of Vancouver Island without being directed by everyone to Shirley Delicious. We were lucky to experience a short line for service early on a Friday morning in July. The music was blasting, the counter staff were genuine and bubbly,...they make pretty cappuccinos and my croissant BLT was crisp and gone within minutes. The press they used gave the flakey outside of the croissant extra crunch. Doggos and babies on the outside seats, keyboard warriors populated the indoor seats.More
