A friendly welcome here, as well as lovely drinks and home tasting snacks.

I was impressed with the way one of the waiting staff dealt with a partially sighted customer....very attentive and made sure he had everying he needed and when a seat became available, made sure he got that. Good public relations stuff that....I'm sure he'd be back!

Had breakfast here two consecutives days while staying at wya point campgrounds (15 mins from there) and it was always crowded. The staff was very friendly and the food really good (the espresso macchiato was excellent). Great atmosphere, highly suggested.

Lattes were good, lots of people order the breakfast sandwich and the muffins. The locals love this place so make sure you go early, very friendly staff

Really good coffee, friendly service and a nice atmosphere, especially when we beat the morning rush of people. We stopped by a couple times during our two day stay in Ucluelet. Lattes were very tasty.

This would be a merely average cafe in any larger city. Staffed by a disinterested staff who all seem they'd rather be elsewhere. And, the only reason I need a sleeve on my to-go cup is because they scald the milk in their lattes and cappucinos.

Thank you for your review. It has been dearly taken to heart and we have already discussed it with our staff (who were horrified) We pride ourselves in serving the best coffee in town & have asked all baristas to take extreme care when heating the milk for lattes or espressos. We look forward to seeing you again.
