We stop here regularly on our way through Cowichan Bay. They have a good assortment of cheeses and the staff really know about each cheese. The good is fabulous and the environment is friendly and relaxed.

It's hard to find a cute little cafe that has character and charm as well as great food. Hilary's cheese has it all. We walked in to an amazing smell of fresh homemade soup simmering on the stove top, and a roaring wood burning stove....More
