“Best scones in town”
Review of Alexander's Coffee

Alexander's Coffee
Ranked #2 of 6 Coffee & Tea in Sidney
Restaurant details
Reviewed September 6, 2017 via mobile

In fact all of their baked yummies are good, and the staff is super friendly and seem quite knowledgeable and eager to please. The only down side is its very small and crowded, and while we'd love to sit for tea and a scone, its just too crowded and noisy. I really wish they were in a larger spot!

You must have the raspberry/white chocolate scones! When my friends vacationed in Sidney for several days they went early every day to be sure to get these! The muffins are out of this world unique - very moist! Coffee is good too. Not a lot of seating but outdoor tables also available. Great local café. Nice local art for sale every day.

In a recent visit to Vancouver Island we stopped into Sidney on our way to the ferry terminal, to have morning coffee. We tried out this recommendation and found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The space is small but cozy and as it was a sunny morning we enjoyed our coffee at an outside table. They make a good coffee and have a good selection of baked goods to accompany your coffee. My husband had their special "Mexican Mocha Latte" but he didn't find it to be anything exciting at all - just very hot temperature wise.
A nice little stopping off place in your day.

For a low-key friendly coffee break in a bistro favoured by locals, drop in to Alexander's Coffee. It's not a large place although it usually has at least a couple of tables free, and often near the window. Being a smidge set back from the street (Beacon), you need to keep your eyes peeled for the sign, but it's worth the little extra effort. There's a nice selection of treats to complement your selection of fine coffee. Drop in - you'll be glad you did.
