Overall, when you walk in the cafe feels welcoming. It's sort of cafeteria style, ordering at the front. Glenna, the owner, bakes all her stuff there and you can see the display case. She doesn't bake the Cornish Pasties, but they're awesome nonetheless. Amazing sandwiches, with a lot of bread choices and I noticed the Esso in town sells wrapped versions of Market Street Sandwiches.

Breakfast is better than other places in town, but lacking in Benny selections. Has the basics, and the staff is obliging if you want grilled onions and sausage or something like that.

The homemade Caesar dressing is to DIE for if you like garlic.

Prices are reasonable, cheaper than a lot of places in town and the portions are MASSIVE. Love the home fries, even though they call them hash-browns for some reason.

While the decor is a little haphazard and dated, the food is consistently excellent and very well priced. Try the thai salad with mandarin slices and almond for a healthy option, and all the sandwiches and baked goods are absolutely delish!

If you want a throwback to the '70's or a college town ambience, go to the Market Street Cafe for breakfast. Not your normal bacon-and-eggs small town cafe. Interesting and good breakfasts, and you can sit outside if it's warm or inside in a cozy nook if it is raining. Looks like a place that you could just go in the winter, sit by the fire, curl up and read a book. Personnel at order counter very knowledgeable about what to do in or out of town. Delightful.

Stopped here for the first time while holidaying in the northern part of Vancouver Island.
My wife had a clubhouse and I tried their Denver sandwich and seafood chowder. Both the Denver and the chowder were slightly above average and the portions were generous. The clubhouse was average.
For dessert we shared their fresh baked cinnamon bun and it was delicious!

Would we eat there again?...... Yes.
