Shirley's Cafe truly was delicious, as we stopped for lunch today. It was very busy and we had to wait 1/2 hour for our sandwich but food was excellent. We enjoyed our turkey/brie sandwich as well as the Thai noodle salad. Our favorite treat was...the shortcake bar and the pain au chocolat. The place has a certain rustic/eclectic charm with a mixture of indoor and outdoor seating. Great place, worth a stop.More

We arrived about an hour before closing and it was busy. The food was delicious as was the coffee! Bought a chocolate pecan bar for dessert but had to take it back to the hotel we were so full!

Nice spot for coffee and a tasty treat for breakfast. We went twice while we stayed close by. Muffins were different both times which was nice that they change it up.

sadly the place was closed despite the google times. Note in front says to check Facebook page for up to date hours of operation. Funny.... as there is no cell service along West Coast Rd. basically from Cowichan Lake to Sooke I had no reception....Hope to taste the delicious goodies next time we are in the area! Will update my rating at a later timeMore

We popped in here as we drove along the coast line. From the outside it doesn’t look much, but when you go in - wow!! It’s so popular but it hasn’t detracted from the food and service. I had one of the blueberry muffins which...is the best I’ve ever had. Great service and despite there being 8 in our party, the service was fast. Really great waitresses! If you drive by, stop!!

Stopped in here June 1 on my way up the coast. The couple in front of me literally cleaned out all of the "ready made" items (like sausage rolls, etc), and took 12 minutes to ORDER. Obviously not the restaurants fault. But by the time...we got there it was a la carte only or 1 type of muffin basically. So ordered a sandwich to go. The sandwich itself was actually quite good, and I thought an OK deal for $10 on fresh bread! But it took over 30 minutes before I even got it! So 12+30, we are pushing 45m for a SANDWICH. I wish they would change the way they make things so that to-go orders would go a bit quicker, but maybe they are not prioritized as they are not taking up tables. Would probably return, but not over peak lunch time.More

Not too far outside of Sooke, this restaurant in the village (?) of Shirley is a picturesque stop for lunch if you're travelling along Hwy 14. We went on a Sunday and it was very busy around lunchtime. Be prepared to wait (we waited around...25 minutes after ordering before our sandwiches were served).More

Drop by only if you are in the vicinity and need a coffee break, but don’t make a special trip out here. Casual cafe serving hot soup, sandwiches and pastries which were ok. Service was cheerful and pleasant but we were put off by the...dirty toilets. Bright and cheery courtyard but again, could do with better cleaning.More

The staff were very friendly and efficient. While some seating is available the cafe primarily operates as a takeout so there are no check on vaccine passports although masks are required. The deserts are absolutely wonderful! My wife had a great latte. If you are...passing Shirley, make sure your stop in. You won't be dissappointed.More

I agree they do offer gluten free, but as the others have pointed out it is a very small venue, their kitchen is tiny. There is a great place in Victoria called origins bakery, completely gluten free and they make the best... More
