A cozy little cafe that serves the best coffee and lattes. Gifts, honey, soaps, chocolate treats, etc. Are also available. The building space is shared with Oma's Bakery, serving soup, sandwiches and all baked goods.

A mature and comfortable shared destination to have a great coffee and delicious baked goods, while meeting with friends or just enjoying the moment. I enjoyed the friendly mature vibe, sitting outside in those warmer dry months or warm inside chatting or reading your book...More

Comfortable venue with freshly roasted coffee of many varieties - one will certainly be right for you. The chocolates (though I don't eat much chocolate) are wonderful. Prices are reasonable and the ambience is very 'home town' and comfy.

This small and cozy coffee shop is so much more. The coffee is fabulous with super wonderful baristas. The chocolate are hand made on site and are some of the best I have ever had. This is a friendly warm welcoming spot. A must visit.

Another great coffee shop in the area. Staff here are great and it feels like a real local shop. Coffee is very good, as are the small treats and chocolates they serve.

Great coffee, which in a way isn't that hard to do. Distinguishing your coffee place from others in the area is a little harder, and the Shawnigan house has conquered that with their gorgeous in-house chocolates and sweets. We had something similar to that pictured...More
