Great coffee and superb baked goods in a homey atmosphere. Just up from the ferry landing, within easy walking distance.

When I walked in, the staff were more busy chit chatting than actually wanting to help. Took a while to get them to sell me a drink

A true small town bakery with fresh bread, cinnamon buns and so much more. I always stop by for a coffee and a yummy baked good when on the island. My favorite is the sourdough bread, fresh out of the oven!

Great place for a beverage or a quick snack. They make great smoothies. Friendly and laid-back vibe, outside picnic tables. Close to the ferry dock.

Four stars means this place shines in its category -- local West Coast craft bakery & cafe. It's basic and simple, not a AAA four diamond property. But the quality is there, from the cinamon buns to the saussage rolls. Lots of veggie options too. Breakfast or lunch -- they have you covered. Staff are great and locals are friendly.... More

Had a quick bite here: a wrap and a couple of veggie rolls. Not bad but not memorable either. Good for a fast snack.

You can't help but make this a stop. It's in the little village area near the ferry so you are bound to have something here, coming or going, off or on the island. This is like many island cafes a place where the owner is in the kitchen. It's a great place for coffee and Danishes or croissant. Save room... More
