“Best Coffee in Canada”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

I was out in Sooke a few years ago. I now work in a call center in Ontario. I was speaking to someone who lived in Sooke. We got to talking about Stick in the Mud. They truly have the best coffee in Canada and they make it with love. I can't wait to travel back out to Sooke to enjoy this exquisite restaurant again.

“Amazing Coffee Shop”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

We went to this little gem twice on our Honeymoon, we wish we could have gone more.
The staff were welcoming and an absolute delight to meet,
The coffee and food were amazing, way better than Starbucks.

I would recommend everyone go and enjoy the quality of food, drink and service.

Thank you
Philly and Nathan

“The place to be for a coffee and light snacks.”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

I frequent this joint for a couple of very good reasons.

1. The staff is excellent. They are always upbeat, quick witted and just generally pleasant to be around.

2. The care of product. Dave, the owner, travels the world in search of beans, literally. With an in-store roaster and a ton of wealth he stands behind his product proudly and should, it's nothing short of fantastic. I've never had a better espresso based coffee. It's the only coffee I can drink black. Every other coffee I need some cream and sugar.

3. The vibe is great here. Everyone is friendly and enjoying themselves.

"The Stick" has a very loyal following and rightly so. You won't be disappointed with a stop here for a coffee and fresh, homemade snack.

“Great local coffee spot with personality.”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

Above of all, the quality of coffee is the most important and The Stick roasts its own beans and they do it well. The Vosino—An americano by another name is a clever take on the postal code, V0S 1N0—was enjoyed many times, as well as lattés that were tasty. The eclectic staff were all genuinely friendly which made the experience that much better. Be sure to stop here when you visit Sooke.
