Rainy day...so we headed for warmth and some eats for a late breakfast. There was funky Jazz music playing, neat artwork all around, and great coffee/food inside. The Belgian waffle was super, so was the breakfast sandwich croissant. Nice and cozy atmosphere. We'll be back.

What a nice place. Good range of food, enormous sandwiches freshly made for us, we had tea rather than coffee, but it was good nonetheless. People really friendly and we went back several times during our stay. Fun artwork on walls, armchair set up in dining area and super friendly. We'll be back.

This is your usual little breakfast, brunch, lunch restaurant. A good range of food and servings are large. Make sure you order their special breakfast which gives great value. You won't need lunch. Laid back service, good portions, great food and excellent coffee. What more could you ask for. Maybe a view but that's about it.

I think this place is overrated, the coffee is good, but the food nothing fantastic. We were there for breakfast, and for almost the same price you can get something better in a nicer place. We wouldn't go back.

The food at Vincentes is wholesome and very tasty. Servings are quite large - enough to share for non active customers but would be plenty for very hungry surfers. We always enjoy at least one meal at Vincentes every time we visit. The owners are very pleasant and the coffee is excellent

A great little place we've been coming to for years and have never been disappointed. Service is always friendly and the breakfast items here are huge. You won't go away hungry. We love their coffee, especially the mocha. There's a great sitting area that's like being in your own living room.

My family and I went to the restaurant this morning for a quick breakfast on our way out of town. Our overall impression of the establishment is really quite poor. First and foremost, any kitchen with an abundance of microwaves should be avoided. Almost all of us ordered soups, or curry, and everyone of them was microwaved. Not once, but... More

My wife and I visit Tofino twice a year and every time we go to Vincente's for either breakfast or lunch. Torben and his crew, whether it is summer time and they are smokin' busy or in the winter time when quieter, offer excellent meals and their Mocha's are simply the best. Starbucks could learn a thing or two! The... More

No trip to Tofino is complete with our daily breakfast latte at Vincente. They take their time making them but it is worth the wait. So delicious and creamy.
