“Awesome food, tea and coffee!”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

If good food, tea and coffee in a casual atmosphere is what your looking for in Ucluelet, then the Barkley Cafe is the place.

I'm not sure which is better, the fresh grilled sandwich's or the fresh brewed coffee. Together, they make a great meal. The baked goods are a good way to finish your meal too.

“Magnificent Lunch”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

You enter into a decor surrounded by West Coast enthusiasm and reading materials. All the food is hand prepped and home made. I had a Rueben sandwich and I must honestly say that it was thee best Rueben I have ever had from any restaurant. Their prices are very reasonable. Must not forget the coffee. Had a wondeerful latte.

If you are in the mood for a great sandwich and coffee, this is the cafe to surely have on your To-Do Visit list.

“Great seafood chowder!”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

Ate here at lunchtime - it was super-busy and we had a bit of a wait, but the food was excellent. This is a tiny cafe - the grill is directly behind the till/display cases - not much room for the staff to move around in but they managed. Tiny tables & rather tippy chairs. The benches outside might be a good option in nice weather. A bit pricey but definitely in line with the other dining choices in this very touristy area. Great "vintage" music choices on the sound system - David Bowie, The Doors.

“Nice cafe”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

Small, elegant cafe in the heart of town. Relaxed vibe, chill music good food. Prices are a bit high but with no Tim Horton's around your hands are a bit tied. Check it out!

“Great coffeehouse!”
Reviewed August 4, 2012 via mobile

This cafe has a nice relaxed atmosphere and delicious goods and drinks. The prices are reasonable and the service is good. I had a chai tea latte that was absolutely delicious. It is comfortable and friendly here and I would recommend it to anyone who needs a coffee, tea, fruit smoothie or a snack!
