This place has a "Whole Juice" bar that is fabulous (a little expensive but it's meal, don't forget) and if that's not enough, the bakery/deli is great too. Step inside the door and take a whiff: I dare you to NOT buy something.

Being relatively new to northern BC, my first visit to this bakery was this past summer while passing through Smithers, destined to Prince George with a colleague. She knew this place well, and recommended that we stop for a coffee and snack. I was very impressed with the selection of baked goods, and choice of beverages. My cinnamon bun with... More

Absolutely loved the quiches here... the cake slices, however, a little disappointing as they were dry and on the stale side.

This is such a wonderful place to go and have coffee, hot chocolate which I really like, sandwiches, cinnamon buns etc... The staff are not lazy...they work hard and are very polite especially the cute manager who always makes me feel special. They certainly don't have to worry about people coming back, they do come back. So the comment about... More

Bought some apple strudel today - The apples weren't peeled. Someone is quite lazy in the back, and management doesn't seem to care. How do they expect people to come back?

Hello Jim, I normally don't feel the urge to reply to reviews on Tripadvisor, but your latest review is a little unnecessary. I feel your comment is a matter of opinion. Many of our customers love our strudel how it's made, and my staff is not lazy. We prepare the strudel this way, sorry you didn't like it. Another point,... More

Had two breakfast opportunities. Coffee and latte more than met my needs. Breakfast wrap was tasty. Nice croissants and muffins. Open early enough to grab a good coffee before hitting the road.

Stopped for mid-morning break before continuing our journey. Excellent coffee & good selection of baked goods. Popular with local residents. Worth visiting again.

This is a great bakery. Beautiful breakfast pastries and great coffee. My family found it two years ago on the way to Alaska. It was a destination for us. Our destination this year was Usk. Many times we considered heading back to Smithers just to stock up. That is how good this bakery is.

Desserts look awesome and prices are great for the big portions. Had a granola bar which was so yummy!
