My husband and I stopped here twice on our last trip to Galiano. We both love their blue-berry scones. The coffee is also very good.

Just a walk up the street from the Galiano Island Inn and Spa is as handy as it gets. Coffee and baked stuff is fresh, what more can you ask for?

Looking for good speciality coffees and early morning hang out. Great baked goods fresh and healthy. Biggest energy balls I've ever seen!

came in for a drink and a baked good and have no idea why the service is so TERRIBLE when they charge $10 for just a drink and baked good (you would think they would treat you vip!). I get a scowl and rude attitude from the lady behind the counter b/c she can't apparently HEAR me TWICE, and because... More

We had visited this bakery several years ago and they had the best sausage rolls we had ever tasted and the coffee was amazing. This time around, it was not the same sausage rolls. Rather than sausage, it tasted like bland ground beef and even the pastry we tried was not exciting. We were really excited about visiting again, but,... More

We were looking for coffee and an early breakfast. There are not a lot of choices in Sturdies Bay. Only the bakery (not the cafe) was open at 7:15. The coffee was good as were the pastries.

Our first day on the island we stopped in here for lunch. Both of our sandwiches were delicious! We also got an almond chocolate brownie which was fairly average and sort of bland. The next day we tried a scone and a croissant. The first was very chewy and the second was not flaky. They had decent flavor but not... More
