Best coffee and gluten free treats I've ever had!

Who knew I had to travel to Powell River for a great cup of coffee? My friends who are locals introduced us to the place on a recent visit. The coffee is the best I've ever had (Italian Roast) and the gluten free carrot muffins are heavenly!

if your looking for something to fill you may I make a statement from getting either the Lumberjack for breakfast and Out of This World Pita just awesome, and if your looking for a little something on the dessert side try the homemade carrot cake.

With the added touch of heating your mug before you pour your coffee this makes this one of the best coffee places around. Always a friendly smile, always great coffee. I tend to stay away from the goodies, however, the portions are huge and modestly priced.

The business is located a little off the beaten path. Lots of convenient parking. Some outdoor seating that is shaded on a hot afternoon. Indoor seating is limited. The big plus is the quality of the food. Everything is home made when ordered. The coffee is the best in town and all soups and sandwich have a unique combination that... More

We ended up here as we needed lunch. The offering was diverse and interesting. The portions were much larger than expected. I was also very impressed with the interior. The high ceilings gave a great feel to the place. I would go back in a second…. in fact will on our next trip

The best place in town to go for a coffee and a snack or lunch. The place is always full, even at 6am there are already customers. The staff is friendly and helpful.
