This little bistro is a hidden gem in Qualicum Beach with delicious, home-made food. The atmosphere is warm and the girls in there are super-friendly.

Visited the town on way to see "Goats on the roof" and stopped for coffee. It has to be said having spent 3 weeks travelling in Canada this was by far and away the best coffee we had... What made it even better was they also provided home made muffins which were the best we had had anywhere not just... More

A bit of old world charm in the cozy little coffee shop and patio. This is our go to coffee stop whenever we are in town for tea/coffee and a light lunch or homemade treat. The other day we had ordered their lunch special of a very tasty homemade tomato soup and a perfectly grilled cheese sandwich. With a beverage... More

This little coffee shop, hidden down at the end of a little courtyard, has its charm. The coffee is very good, especially the mocha. We thought by the name of the coffee shop that it would have a 'French' touch. The sandwiches, however, are called 'panini' but are served on 'naan' bread - somewhat confusing. The fillings slip around on... More

The food here was tasty and well-prepared. The potato cheddar soup was flavourful without being overwhelmed by cheese. The brie salad with chicken had REAL roasted chicken, not some prepared meat. Both were generous portions. The tea choices were lovely. This little restaurant was a delightful find after too many meals on the coast that were overpriced with over-garliced food.

Very quaint place but on the smaller size. Same for the menu but if you like something a bit different for lunch , do try it. It is located in the inner courtyard across from Giovanni's.

This cute little shop is off the main road, but is perfect. This food is classic - cheddar potato soup, deluxe grilled cheese, etc. I highly recommend when you want a break from rich, fancy restaurant food. This is a great lunch stop.

It is a small coffee house that serves coffees, soups and sandwiches. We had paninis and salad. The portions are large and the plating is ordinary. I had a Californian club, with chicken, avocado and bacon, and it looked tasty. but it was very bland.The service is fine, but not outstanding. I may have a coffee there in the future,... More

Hiding in the Carriage Lane Arcade is a very quiet and quaint little café. We sat beside the fire place in a couple of comfy chairs and enjoyed a great mug of well-made coffee along with a scrumptious scone of huge proportions and a delicious muffin. A great little café to have a decent coffee and homemade meals. Well worth... More
