Dropped by for lunch on a Saturday as I wanted a bowl of soup and was not disappointed. Had the Thai soup for lunch and it was delicious and filling. Nothing fancy here – but a solid choice for a casual and quick lunch.

Take a walk up the stairs of this grocery store and you will find this lovely eatery. Seating is cozy, ambiance is lovely, staff is marvelous. The food is good too. Some menu items have just changed so there are new sandwiches to try.

I'm glad I don't live in Qualicum or I'd be here every day! We came here twice and got our favorite coffee drinks and some seriously awesome sweets. Of course we found things to buy each time that we couldn't live without. They are nice...More
