“A welcome addition”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2013

This is a newly renovated cafe in Qualicum Beach. It has become popular very quickly. The staff are warm and friendly. The coffee and food are very good. It has a very nice feeling and has become my favorite place to meet friends

“very happy!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2013

my second visit to the new addition to our town. and I'm delighted with it! used to be deb's deli before it sold to another couple, which did not last long. the small space has been updated, feels quite city-like, which is great. love the framed photos on the walls. a counter and bar stools along the front window and a bench along the wall with chairs on the opposite side. it has been busy both times i've been there. tasty baked goods, I haven't tried the lunch items yet. one orders from the counter. appears very popular already with the comings and goings of the patrons. cheery staff. fun place. welcome!
