Picked up some cookies and sampled the cinnamon buns with a cup of coffee, did not disappoint! A welcomed treat for our picnic lunches during our tour of Cowichan Bay.

Popped in after whale watching, in need of tea and cake and this place was perfect. Great atmosphere, fabulous cake (and other things, bread, pies etc) just what we needed and more!

When you pay more for coffee and a bun than Starbuck's charges and have to listen to the staff go on about their organic such and such, the distraction is annoying. The coffee was mediocre and warm and the cups were small. Won't come back.

I am sorry you didn't feel you got good value for your money. The fact remains organic and fair trade ingredients cost more and that is reflected in our selling price.
