Some very good aspects to this cafe, especially the coffee and breads; but the service was not particularly welcoming as most of our other experiences in Sun Peaks had been.

Hello Mpk1970, thank you for your review. I apologize that the service you experienced was sub-par. Our team is exceptionally friendly and welcoming so you must have caught us on an off moment. After a very busy weekend I know we were a bit run down but I am sorry that we were not as welcoming to you as we... More

From a self confessed coffee snob, i must admit that it was a pleasant surprise to find this little gem in Sun Peaks. The staff were very pleasant, and took pride in the quality of the coffee and food that they produced. The soups must also get a big thumbs up as well. Thanks girls!

This is a great spot to stop for mid-morning coffee and cake. The coffee is excellent and there is always an excellent selection on display of both savoury and sweet things to have with it. The people that run it are friendly and welcoming.

we visited at least once a day during our 3 day visit to Sun Peaks, coffee was great - they could make a flat white and also a hot chocolate without whip. Staff friendly and great and the food we tried was yummy!

We were at our yearly ski trip to sun peaks and ate twice at the Vertical Café. They have the best breakfast sandwiches I think we've ever had. Fast service and great coffee. You have to go.

We like to stop here at least once every time we are in Sun Peaks. The staff are friendly and welcoming. The chai and the mocha are our favorites.

Our food and coffee was good and they had a lot of appealing looking snacks. However, there are only about four tiny tables inside, and a few outside. Not a place to stay and chat or visit. The tables are too small to put any amount of food and ski gear (helmets, etc) on and when people are ordering they... More
