Yum!

Incredible edibles. Best blueberry muffin. Only wish I bought more. We had to meet our fishing charter at 8 am. No restaurants opened before then but the bakery had the most amazing ham and egg quiche. Hot and ready to go. Definitely will be stopping again.

We grabbed some bakery items as a quick breakfast one day (a berry scone and pastry). Both were really good. We tried to go back twice but they're closed on sunday... and monday morning they didn't have much in stock (hadn't caught up on baking after a day off?), which was disappointing.

We go here just for the soup. Fun eating outside if you like to watch people. They have a good breakfast menu, which was also very tasty.

We had the soup and sandwich special, the sourdough bread was great. Locally made Russian Borscht was heavenly ! Great coffee, great service, a friendly fun place to eat. Well worth the stop.

On our way up to Kaslo we stopped quickly in Balfour and discovered this wonderful bakery. The Scones not only look amazing, they taste AMAZING!!! By far the best scones I think I have had. My husband bought 2 cookies and they were also fantastic. The next day we were walking through Nelson and I was excited to see the... More

We picked up a couple of pastries and coffees when waiting for the ferry. It is no surprise that it was so busy. The food is fabulous and the cafe latte can easily compete with the Starbucks of this world. Skip breakfast at home and come here in the morning before catching the Kootenay Ferry at Balfour.

A favorite stop while staying in the area and when getting on and off the Ferry! Pastries are delicious, samosas hot and spicy, sausage rolls a favorite, bread like Mom's! Large portions! Mmm delicious!

We stopped here because we were waiting for the ferry and it was the only place open. we picked up some muffins, cookies and sodas. They only had one variety of muffin which seemed odd - and I wish we had tasted them before buying a few. None of us could eat them, despite being starving! I don't know if... More
