Good spot to while away the time

Port Hardy is small. And if you, like I did, have a few hours to kill between flights I'd suggest this little coffee shop. They have a selection of hot drinks and sandwiches.

The staff was friendly and accommodating, and the coffee, tea, and snacks were tasty. We enjoyed the atmosphere which was quaint and comfortable. We went back twice and were pleased both times.

Great feel and quality food at this little cafe. This cafe is on the main floor of a complex including a community craft and art space upstairs and a great little book shop downstairs. All the staff were wonderful. The combination of the different spaces worked well, encouraging one to wander between them and linger longer. And yes, the coffee... More

We make a point of dropping in here whenever we are in the area. Excellent coffee and pastries for an afternoon break. A bonus is the on-site book store and the "West Coast Community Craft Shop". In the latter are many West Coast artisan pieces for sale at reasonable prices.

I stopped here during my limited time between getting off the ferry and departing for the southern part of the island and was glad I did! The coffee was fantastic for the drive and so was the scone and yogurt cafe. The staff were very friendly and the atmosphere was very engaging with a book store and gifts to browse... More

I never would have expected an awesome coffee shop in Port Hardy? Guido's is excellent - better than most in the big cities. As I consider a relocation to Port Hardy I see Cafe Guido being an every day occurrence. Coffee is great, atmosphere is wonderful and the food was far too tempting to ignore.
