We ate here twice on our trip to Salt Spring in the summer - the food was amazing, the service was excellent - and the view was breathtaking. We plan on coming back for sure. :)

The place is casual & friendly with a fantastic view of the bay. The service is quick and the food very satisfying - my favorite "Bombay Surf Bowl" or fish & chips.

While touring the island we stopped in for some soup to tide us over until a lat Sunday dinner. The place was hopping as the ferry was due to arrive in about 30 minutes. I ordered the seafood chowder and hubby ordered the soup of the day - Mexican. Both were tasty and filling. Service was not rushed. We had... More

A combo of ferry terminal coffee and treats shop and a café with ok inside seating and a small outdoor patio. The food has always been very good and the service is quick and friendly. A great place to grab a bite while waiting for the ferry.

Mussels were plentiful and delicious. Great food and friendly service. Only downside was the bathroom was out of order and I had to walk to the ferry bathroom where there was a long line up for one bathroom. But food was great!

Surprised to find such good food beside the ferry. I walked in expecting a cafe atmosphere selling coffee, sandwiches and finger foods and instead had some of the best mussels on the Island here. The caesar salad was nothing to write home about but pleasent experience. Will go there again the next time we visit.

Perfect if you are waiting for the Fulford ferry or have just gotten off, or if you happen to live on the island just get down there.! The food was fantastic and the service awesome, thanks Jesse!

My, but did we enjoy our breakfast here! We sat by the window and had a great view of the harbor. Food is made with care and was delicious. Quirky place with nice art. Check out their customer reply wall, some funny gems.

Very nice place at Fulford Harbour. Tasty coffee and really delicious pastries!!! A busy place while ferries are arriving and departing. Friendly staff and a good view on the harbour, so you won't miss your ferry...
