Yummy sweets and easy to go sandwiches!

Quick and efficient staff make it very easy to pop in for a treat before the ferry or if you have time a nice cup of coffee with a sandwich on the outdoor patio makes for a great lunch spot.

A great place to grab breakfast and snacks to take along with you while doing island exploration. We ordered pasta soup which comes with two large pieces of bread! Also packed sandwich for lunch. Cinnamon roll is most popular so grab it early! The granola bar is very tender and the date cake are great to replenish energy during the... More

A very small place with really good products. Well the meat pies and various breads are worth the visit.

Heard that they had cinnamon buns available. Went to get some, but they sell out very early. Went back the next morning and purchased 4 for our group. Amazing. Just as good as mom used to bake. Would have more but they are so large that I couldn't eat more.

Incredible baked goods including a few indian items like samosas which were very good. Wish I could have taken home the beautiful loaves of bread! People working there very friendly.

Stopped in here a few times while visiting this island. Cappuccino good, bread good and bakery items looked very yummy. Small but enough choices to satisfy a variety of tastes.

We went to this bakery every day for five days. Excellent: cinnamon buns (had them cut into four -- generous!), amazing organic multigrain sourdough, vegetarian yum wrap, calzones, butter chicken samosas, muffins, kaiser buns, croissants. Went there on my way off the island and bought six loaves of bread for my freezer. Wish I'd bought more.

This seems to be an island hangout. Everyone was here in the morning. The perfect place for a roll and coffee.

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
