Quaint little store in Tofino, but we quickly walked out after seeing the oven mitts with F-bombs and other language in the doorway. Not a great way to educate kids and not the only merchandise so decorated.

We were there today with our two kids. Staff was not very friendly ... ice cream selection limited, no toppings etc. also quite expensive (14$ for 3 ice cream balls). No restrooms, no real seating available apart from two benches. Nothing you will miss.
