This is a quiet place to sit and enjoy a great cup of coffee. It is family run and offers comfortable seats in a small venue that is well suited for the area in Comox.

Went in one day when it was drizzle outside... nice and cozy inside. Great start! Ordered coffee and something to nibble for two. Found the coffee very weak. We found it weaker than Tim Horton's (not a great standard to use, but one that is widely understood). It is right in the centre of Comox, so we may try it... More

We were doing a fast reconnoitre through Comox and I needed a quick fix. We ducked in here on our way to check out the harbour and I grabbed a muffin--berries, oat bran, orange and other things--heaven! I confess. I woofed that muffin and I'm usually pretty controlled, but I was really hungry and it was really, really, really good!... More

I used to frequent Café Amantes with a client who had dementia. We were always treated with the utmost respect and care. The staff offered the client time to place her order and helped her with her change and her cookie! After sitting for 5 minutes, the client was ready to leave, and we were always told 'bye bye, have... More

Trip advisor reviews prompted me to take a lunch break here and I was quite pleased. The London Fog is indeed one of the best I've had recently. I enjoyed a vegetarian lasagna entree, and though it was a bit heavy on the carbs, it was quite tasty. Friendly service, and a pleasant environment that doesn't project everyone's conversation. Now... More

I'm back as a patron. I like my Mochas but not with the sweet syrup most coffee places use. Amantes used Ghiradelli chocolate so when Benino's is closed, this is where I now come.

The lattes and espresso drinks are fantastic, and my husband loves their London Fogs. All drinks come with a mini gingersnap and they are heavenly.

Great Coffee, I like it here for the view of the Bay and Town from outside especially in the summer.
