Nicely updated decore from our last visit with ample comfortable seating and service area now at the back. Glad they still serve Creekmore's Coffee from Coombs - one of the Island's best. my Chai was excellent

I was visiting family in Comox, and passed this place every day on our walks. We stopped in for a coffee. It is pleasant inside. The mugs they give you are HUGE! If I had one criticism, it would be that they are not open long enough and are closed Sundays.

I love how they updated this cafe. There are little fireplaces at some of the tables. Great almond milk lattes and the staff are always welcoming!

This place has really good seating and is very spacious but the menu is limited. Sandwiches and soups served only on certain days. But it's a great place for groups to gather, the seats are comfortable and leather. There is a bar table facing the street for people watching if you're by yourself.

An excellent selection of coffees from around the world. Ginger Snaps are to die for. Great looking wait staff doesn't hurt

While the coffee has been reliably good (not great), the atmosphere is good, and the service is very pleasant. I usually forget about Caffe Amantes as my heart has been captured by another Café in Comox, however I would consider Caffe Amantes a solid option for someone wanting a coffee and a snack. A nice place to meet someone, or... More

While in town house-hunting, our Realtor Carla Arnold took us for lunch at the Cafe Amantes. What a treat; it's a small contemporary cafe that serves up fresh homemade food and treats. Colleen swears it's the BEST tea she ever had, and her roast beef sandwich was very good. Carla had the soup of the day...pumpkin? And I really enjoyed... More

Not a coffee drinker although I go with a friend who says they offer whatever you are looking for. I usually get an iced tea or London Fog on a cold day with those little cookies, who can resist those little cookies?? :) Absolutely my go-to place when I need a sandwich fast as I am hooked on their deviled...

Very nice intimate eating areas. Extensively re-modeled. Now features a great selection of food prepared on demand. Great coffee. They blend tea on the spot so you can get your own personal flavour favorites which is a great touch.
