We ate here while in Coombs. The store has lots of great food items and shopping. This is the place that is home to Goats on the Roof. The food at the cafe was disappointing and for sure did not wow me.

This is a nice little restaurant that offers home-made type foods for the family during your visit to see the Goats. Okay food, okay service, okay restaurant.

The Coombs Cafe needs to be experienced to fully enjoy it. They serve the best burgers around but bring your appetite. You will not be disappointed. The fun part is that you can browse the market, the bakery, the deli (oh my) and have a truly magical experience.

The Coombs Restaurant has been consistently good in providing a great lunch. Burgers are tasty and the soup and sandwiches are always good. Atmosphere is unique which makes this a great stop for families and groups. After lunch take some time to explore the wide variety of items in the store form art supplies to numerous food items.

We always stop here on the way to Tofino. We had the black bean burger with soup and with salad. The tomato soup with feta was very salty. The burger was okay, but I've had better. Overall, nothing special but an okay place to stop for a quick meal.

This was very interesting to visit. The cafe and specialty grocery shop has 'goats on the roof ' happily chomping on grass. Coombs in general seemed like a lovely little country town.

Coombs is great place to or from the Vancouver Island west coast. We wanted a soup. Their clam chowder and smoked corn soup along with a coffee hit the spot. There are groceries and other items for the shoppers. Sadly too full for a delicious ice cream. And yes, there are goats on the roof v

This is a neat place to stop for a short visit. The goats on the roof were a hit, and the general store had next to everything you could want
