We visited today and were very pleased! First off we thought it may be hard to find local vegan food since Salt Spring Island is small.. but this place was amazing and did not disappoint! Everything is vegan! They have a wide range of really cool and interesting books. The owner is clearly a hard worker and a dedicated vegan... More

We came inside leaving behind a somewhat rainy and grey day here on Salt Spring Island and found sunshine. Well of a sort. We fell in love with the quirky surroundings, the stumpy polished log tables and benches. And the young lady in charge, Manon, with her quick mischievous smile, is instantly likeable, too. We opted to share a bowl... More

A nice nook at Fulford Harbour: browse the books (good selection), try the cookies (excellent), chat to people (informative), and sit for a quick lunch if you have time. Rustic and unpretentious.

Love this place. I'd been here years ago and it still has it's Salt Spring charm. Love the combination of books and yummy drinks/food. This place was always where time began to slow down for me. You get off the ferry, go here and begin to slow down.

And it was food you can feel good about...the book store had a phenomenal collection of titles and authors spanning the globe, with an earth friendly focus.

I am a food writer, so am discerning about food, and this place was top-notch. The food showed inspiration and technical expertise, transforming vegan ingredients into meals that felt rich and filling.

the person working there today was very rude. She seemed stressed out because it was a bit busy and was fairly snappy at customers. At one point she locked everyone out from the ordering area because she didn't want anyone in there while she tried to catch up. The customer service was terrible and it made me want to go... More

we noticed that this is the only review you have written, which leads us to believe that you were sent in to cause trouble and to show everyone how selfish, unempathetic and how without compassionate you really are. how shameful to criticize my talented partner who was doing her best to serve the lineup of customers with incredible food and...

Don't go there! Why own a bakery if you don't want to sell baked goods? I was waiting for the ferry at Fulford and needed bread, so I popped in to see what this bakery had. There were "Artisan" breads on a rack in the back of the store, and I could hear someone working further back. I said, "Hello"... More

i was present when you were in, our sign noted that we were short staffed that day...you were aggressively impatient and without compassion, manon was busy preparing food for other customers..be thoughtful, be compassionate, consider that the whole world doesn't necessarily revolve around you.

Wholesome approach to vegan cuisine. Very charming and homey atmosphere. Creative and inspiring. A great place to explore Conscious living in a very positive environment. Try the V'egg Panini, it is amazing! Love the Vegan cheeses and greens.
