Awesome food and friendly staff make this a vibrant shop in the heart of downtown Courtenay. Plan to spend some time there because it's hard to choose from all the delicious treats

Possibly one of the best sandwiches I've had (as my wife rolls her eyes at me), but honestly it was very good. So after our break here it was time to head into the right hand side and... More
