“Where to go for your cuppa joe”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

I used to trip very often between Powell River on the mainland and Nanaimo on Vancouver Island, where my daughter attended university. That trip involves a 1.5-hour ferry ride and a drive of about the same length. There was one target stop on that route--Serious Coffee in Courtenay. On the wrong side of the main drag on the southward leg of the trip, but worth the trouble of turning the car around and tying up the dog under the nearby trees. It's my mini-holiday from the rain and my hectic schedule. The place is always warm and comfortable, full of interesting people and the sound of good conversation, pleasantly littered with books and reading material--and alive with the heavenly aroma of seriously good coffee. The food menu may have changed since I was there so I won't go into details about it; suffice it to say that the variety of coffeetime and breakfasty goodies tempted some money right out of my wallet, whereas normally I'm too much of a purist to indulge in anything but espresso-style coffee, no sugar or other additions, thank you very much. There's a good tea menu, too.
Next trip to the Island, you'll find me indulging in another mini-holiday at this coffee shop. Seriously.
