Easy walking distance from many motels in Ucluelet. Great coffee and excellent baked goods (muffins, etc.) to start your day.

Our first visit we had coffee and the most delicious rhubarb & strawberry crumble cake. Then the young woman made us up some takeout sandwiches with such care and attention soooo nice. Also great music playing too so we had to go back!!

I love muffins. These are the best. They were warm, fresh out of the oven in the morning. I had died and gone to heaven.

We visited on more than one occasion, afternoons are the best times. Mornings are super busy, no competition I feel, 35 mins wait from order to coffee in hands. It’s lovely coffee, but seriously time issues here.

For $11 they really should try harder with the burrito. It was a sloppy messy that seemed either microwaved nor not put in the press long enough. Hard to call unless you saw it. Chorizo was not grilled, not boiled, not sure…Coffee was ok. A...coffee shop should have great coffee , not ok stuff. Leave that to the diner across the street.More

Barkley cafe was recommended by Kevin so we could make our 9am meet up at the marina for our Hello Nature kayak adventure. Looks like the locals know this is the place for their early coffee run. Had a delicious bagel sandwich without bacon and...an latte extra shot and my friend chose the English muffin egg sandwich and oat milk latte. Bit of confusion on the oat milk order but all and all a perfect breakfast on the run.More

Honestly would give it 0 stars if we could. 2 drip coffees and 2 muffins were $18...which okay I am good with if they were good. Drip coffee was undrinkable. I am a nurse and I have drank 3 day old cold swill and its...better than this was. Muffins were meh and definitely previously frozen. Staff seemed unsure of what they were doing and the procedure of their own establishmentMore

We visit Ucluelet once a year for a couple of days usually in the early spring and enjoy having our morning coffee and a snack at this café. Not this year, it appears management has changed and the service, cleanliness and quality of coffee and...food has deteriorated badly. We ordered our coffee and a muffin and paid. We asked for creamer as the carafe was empty and a young man grumbled something to us as we left. What we expected and received for our money was sour coffee and the most horrible muffins we had ever tasted. We threw it all away. There are much better place to buy a cup of coffee in Ucluelet but many establishments are only open at certain times and certain days of the week.More

I’ve been to This cafe before Covid and it’s was good. First time out on staycation and I’m disgusted by lack of Covid safety. All 3 people working were not wearing masks of any kind making and serving food, no signs about masks or sanitizer...walking in. Didn’t see them wash their hands during interactions either after handling money. You can at least wear the plastic half mask so your not having your droplets in people drink or food. Went to get my tea lid and there are crumbs in the container for the lids and I’m sure everybody is touching the lids. Gross. I ate the food cause I was hungry. Was good except I was more worried about their droplets being on my food. Won’t go backMore

We popped in here for Breakfast after reading all the great reviews on it- it did not disappoint!! Best latte we have had in a looooong time- in fact we have only ever had one latte as good in one other place in BC. Breakfast...sandwiches, muffins and bagels are delicious! And service was friendly too. Definitely worth visiting- we will be popping in here again before we head homeMore

Best place to get an early coffee, as it is one of the few places open at 7am. Very friendly, professional, and happy staff. Thank you for making our day!

On a Monday morning looking for breakfast in Ucluelet can be very difficult as most restaurants are all closed for their day off. You would think the restaurant owners would organize and stagger their days off. However, we found the Barkley cafe which was open...and they served a breakfast of sorts and we were not disappointed. Their wraps and bread covered omelettes with bacon and a kind of salsa were excellent and very filling for a reasonable price. Coffee was also very good. Not a lot of seating due to COVID but the cafe was very warm and welcoming and we enjoyed our breakfast and a chat immensely. Thanks guys.More

My husband had a hot chocolate (came with whipped cream) and a piece of pumpkin spice loaf, while I had a decaf caramel macchiato. He said the loaf was really good & enjoyed his hot chocolate. My macchiato was yummy! We were able to sit...inside even though there’s limited seating due to covid. Reasonably priced! Would recommend!More
