After our hike to the narrows we enjoyed delicious sandwiches including chicken and ham. Freshly made bread and local meats that will please a discerning traveler. The cinnamon buns are delicious - you cannot imagine a more delicious scent.

After our hike to see the phenomenal eddies, we power walked back to get to the cafe, not being totally sure what time it closed! We were in luck! I had a veggie sandwich and my husband had a toasted cheese and ham with pesto. Both delicious! We topped these off with the best blueberry and lemon muffins we have... More

Cinnamon buns with raisins were an absolute treat - and so good to be able to choose to have them without the usual syrupy icing. Good coffee.

Cafe was quite busy in the afternoon on a weekend. It was getting toward the end of the day, so there wasn't much to choose from. Espresso Machine was out of service, so limited hot beverages as well. This cafe has undergone some changes since it was renovated after a fire. They were doing their best under the circumstances.

Dropped by after our hike to the narrows. Had the cinnamon bun and coffee. Grinder was broken so only drip coffee. Staff very friendly. Love the location in the trees. Check it out.

We stopped in after our trek to the Rapids! We had ice cream, but really wanted a cinnamon bun or other treat.... There were none left! Only 2 lonely feta and tomato rolls, which I am sure we're great! The staff (owners I think, were friendly) they also have a few items to purchase like cards by local artists, and... More

A great little coffee shop with good treats and coffee. It is the only place on the way in to the Skookumchuck. It's not big but very inviting and friendly.

The Bakery & Cafe is situated in a lovely place among greenery on the way to Skookumchuck Rapids. It was a wonderful treat to stop there for a lunch on the way back. They make a great coffee and delicious sandwiches. The service is very nice.

Delicious breakfast sandwich before we headed off on our walk. The cook was a very personable guy wearing an apron that his mom made him!
