There is terrible coffee, average coffee, good coffee, great coffee and the best cup of coffee you can imagine. This is the last in the list and is well worth pulling off the highway to visit. You can tell these people have a passion for coffee and are happy to guide you towards the flavour you will like. We also... More

Not only is the coffee great, but their sense of humour is uniquely wonderful. They're even polite if you don't get the joke,

This family owned coffee roasters and cafe is unrivalled on Vancouver Island. All the delicious food is home made and the coffee is roasted on site. A wonderful welcoming feeling awaits you. For a real taste treat,try the coconut brioche. You won't be sorry.

A wonderful place for coffee or lunch!! Atmosphere could be cozier, the chai tea latte makes up for it though.

Just off the highway in Cobble Hill, this coffee shop serves lattes the way they should be served: hot, milky, with wonderful espresso shots, and best of all in a big mug. And to have the coconut brioche along side makes this one of the great treats on southern Vancouver Island.

We do not live in Cobble Hill but always make a point of stopping at drumroaster if we are anywhere near. This little business has been built up by the family, and the owner really does know the coffee business. The roast on site so freshness is assured. The baked goods are outstanding, the cranberry/orange cookies may be the best... More

A coffee shop with a great blend of European and American West Coast styles, slightly hidden behind Country Grocer. They roast their own beans and sell coffee machines as well. Very knowledgeable, friendly staff - mostly members of the family that owns the place. I found it refreshing to find a place that has not been sold to the highest... More
