There is a good reason for the queue. Great coffee, good service. Delicious veggie focaccia. Agree with other very positive reviews. A slightly different touch ... The table marker you are given after placing your order is a symbol not a number. Ours was an owl, another I noticed was a star fish.

Thank Chris A

We were heading home from Kelowna and were in need of lunch. As we always seem to be at the end of a holiday, we were sick of junk and fast food, but needed a quick stop for lunch. A quick search on Trip Advisor lead us to The Modern Bakeshop & Café and we were not disappointed! We tried the soup of the day, an Italian melt, a focaccia pizza and a Panini called "Yamelicious." Everything came out quickly and was delicious! Better yet - under $25 dollars! We would have spent more at Subway for the 3 of us! On our way out we grabbed some lattes and treats to go - they were all yummy! We also grabbed a loaf of bread to take home so we would have something for breakfast the next day. It was one of the best loaves we've had! Too bad it's a 4 hour drive from home to get another one! Do yourself a favor and skip the highway's fast food offerings - Modern is only a 5 minute detour off the highway and well worth it!

This bakery got such great reviews, so I think my expectations were too high! party of 6 adults visited their for drinks and snack one early afternoon.
Tea was okay - not that great tasting black tea. Coffee was mediocre (but not bad). Cookies were good - but not amazing.

Came with a friend for breakfast. Both had yogurt and granola, coffee and a latte. All very good, although latte was a bit pricey.
