Great coffee and excellent pastry offerings. There is a funky book store section but I was too busy to scope out.

The good service and food are really enhanced by the cool bookstore downstairs and the totally awesome and amazing local craft store upstairs. A one of a kind shop - don't miss it on your trip to Port Hardy.

This charming coffee house not only has a great variety of treats and drinks for every palate, but there is also a book store and upstairs you will find a treasure trove of North Coast art all handmade by local artists.

The coffee and sandwiches are lovely. Having wifi is a nice feature and being able to shop for new and used books is also a great feature. They had all of the Canada Reads novels on display last time I was there. Plan to spend more time there as there is also an art gallery and crafts shop upstairs. Stop... More

This coffee shop is the central hang-out in Port Hardy where you can not only get a great cup of coffee and some of the best scones that I've ever tasted, but you can also pop upstairs to the local gallery, which is filled with many of the local artists works. In addition to that, the Café is home to... More

Very simple cafe but everything cooked fresh. Neat tasty ingredients. Make their own ingredients. About 30 flavors for Italian soda. A gem in a small remote town

I wound up with only enough time to get a go-coffee (great latte)...with regret! It was warm and cozy, the food smelled wonderful, there were local arts and crafts to browse, and a new/used bookstore inside as well - !!! Definitely will come back to hang out!

Best coffee in town. Great home-made cakes, sandwiches and soups - to eat in or take out. Convenient high street location.

Excellent coffee, average rating of the food, a lovely bookstore on the floor below and local handcrafted arts of all types upstairs. Recommend if you are in Port Hardy and looking for a decent place to go for food - this is the one.

This place is a real gem, in a surprising location. It doesn't draw you in from the outside, but the inside is really great. The coffee shop is on the main floor. On the lower level is an excellent and very quaint book shop, that is cozy and comfortable. Above the coffee shop is an artists / craft area with... More
