Delicious

Delicious but a tad pricey - like most things on this island. Fifteen dollars for two hot drinks and two pastries. But delicious none the less and great, friendly service. Would have liked to be there close to lunchtime for a calzone or other savoury taste but wasn't. Maybe next time :) outdoor and... read more

This place is a must while on Galiano for great coffee, cinnamon buns & fabulous breads. It is hard to avoid! Get there early for your cinnamon buns or you will be disappointed

I was quite disappointed as I was hoping for the sourdough taste from sourdough bread. It was certainly fresh, and organic, but I wish I had brought some from the mainland as I did not find it particularly tasty. I actually gave it away as it wasn't worth the calories. The place is only open until early afternoon. The small... More

Friendly, always willing to pack "to go" for a picnic, superb tacos, in Galiano's little "downtown" so easy to grab other items if others in your party want something different

And so much more. Very tasty lunches too. But I cannot leave without a pie. So good. I went back and got a cinnamon bun for the ferry ride

Delicious breakfast pastries and lunch wraps. My favourite wrap featured rice, yams, vegetables, feta, and chipotle mayo.

This little bakery not only has good baked goods, it is a great place for soup and sandwiches and coffee. A gathering place for the locals to meet.

We gave this bakery about 4 tries. Many times on our visits to Galiano it was always closed (very limited hours) so the first time we saw it open we ran in! We looked at the display and there wasn't anything appetizing at all so we actually walked out empty handed. Very disappointing after what we've seen on other islands... More

During a two week stay, we ran out of bread. This place sells organic sourdough; How bad could it be? Well, pretty bad it turns out. This family devours bread, even commercial stuff when necessary. We never waste it. In fact, I can't remember when we last threw bread away. This staggeringly expensive (6 1/2 bucks) loaf was dry and... More

Went here for coffee with my wife several times, while on vacation. We like our coffee and stumbled across this place one day after breakfast. We ordered single shot latte's and they were quite good. The girl that made the coffee's obviously had some Batista skill and made heart on my coffee and a leaf on my wife's which I... More
