Take a Pleasant Break

The Courtyard serves very good coffee but their specialty is crepes. They have a crepe for all occasions from breakfast on. If you are not partial to crepes their sandwiches are very good and the baked goods must be tasted. Peter and Meryl are congenial hosts, ready to share local knowledge if... read more

Discovered this place whilst in Parksville and ended up eating there twice. A really relaxed atmosphere and with gluten free options for my husband it made the whole experience even better. Would recommend for something unique with good food.

Very friendly staff. Knowledgeable owner/chef with loads of delicious (and this is rare), gluten free menu choices. The desserts alone are worth the trip. The soups and special items are excellent. By the way, the coffee made with locally roasted beans from Creekmore and, like the desserts, is worth stopping in for. Nice atmosphere with a beautiful courtyard seating area.

This cafe has a quaint outdoor patio at the back of the restaurant, which we really appreciated on a hot sunny day. The staff were friendly, helpful and courteous. The crepes were good, I liked mine a lot, my wife would have preferred her's warmed up. Our little boy had a grilled cheese sandwich which he devoured. The food was... More

We had a nice breakfast there, the gluten-free crepes were just as tasty as normal crepes. Good B&B style cafe with friendly mom&pop owners.

Nice little spot you can serve yourself good coffee and have breakfast until closing at 2:30. Friendly owner/staff. Crepes and wraps and other good stuff to eat. Casual atmosphere.

Peter is very friendly. Nice to be about to order glutan free. Would really like to see other healthy choices. No sugar. Fruit, more veggies. Lunch is hard. I don't always want sweet stuff. Love the tea in test cups.

The only reason we would eat here is that they have a few gluten free items on the menu. We have friends who have celiac and they like to go to Courtyard Cafe. We have found other better places to eat in Qualicum and many of them also have gluten free food.

This is a very friendly spot with a relaxed feel, and sitting out in the courtyard on a summer's day is a very pleasant way to spend some time. The owner is very friendly and pleasant, and the ambience makes one feel at home. This café is centrally located amongst the village shops.

Had 2 very good Creekmore coffees and a piece of blueberry coffee cake. What we had was very good. Not a lot of choice in the morning offerings. Good location in downtown Qualicum Beach.
