This wonderful cafe is located behind the main street of the town. It is a corner detached building. The coffee cakes and breakfast meals are fantastic. So too are their sandwiches. It has alfresco dining too and occupies the whole building.

Enjoyed breakfast here with my daughter one morning . Cash only but good value, good service and everything freshly cooked. Doesn't.t appear to be too many places in Tofino for breakfast . This was a lovely find. In and outdoor seating.

good cheap place for breaky. Their breakfast sandwich is doing the trick - and you can stuck up on coffee before a full day out!

Good food but not enough inside seating. Would be better if they brought the coffee to your table like they do for the food instead of having to wait for it while they make it and then take it back to your table yourself.
