Very friendly lady behind the counter, great choice of tea. And chocolate. :o)
We got in there totally wet and it was really crowded with six customers but we all got our tea/coffee and could sit there and get a bit dryer.
If you reuse your cup you'll get a discount.
So far the best place for tea in Tofino I know.

Poor service provided from one of the locals (if I had to guess), okay concept for a touristy place in the summer but when it's a wet west coast day it's just not homey or cozy. Small space furnished with Ikea type furniture.

Dear JackStarr70

I am sorry your experience was not pleasant and would love the opportunity to change your mind about the Tofino Tea Bar the next time you visit Tofino.

I am just curious as to when you visited the Tofino Tea Bar...I am one of the owners and really appreciate feedback. It would be helpful for us to know the date you visited so we know who was working and can deal with the poor service aspect of your visit.

As for the decor, it may not be your cup of tea so to speak but you are entitled to your opinion. Most people who have visited have thought it to be cozy and have complimented us on our use of space and the cozy comfortable feel. In fact, the only complaint to date has been that they would love it if our deck was covered. so they could sit outside while it is wet west coast day. However this costs money and we just opened in July so it is one of those things that will have to wait.

As you probably know, when starting a business it is wise to keep your costs and overhead low. Hence the intimate size of our space, Space is at a premium in Tofino and extremely expensive, the space we are located in was literally the only space available when we decided to open shop.....we would love to expand into a larger affordable space but the cost is currently preventative.

Please let us know if you have any suggestions for us.

Regards,

Cheryl

We loved stopping by Tofino Tea Bar for a nice iced tea in the afternoon. It's a great place to relax and check your email while enjoying the sunny patio. The friendly owners really went out of their way to provide us with useful information. I highly recommend visiting.
