Better than average coffee for sure. Service on the slow side, but nothing to complain about when on vacation!

Garrath is one of the greatest barista's in BC if not the world. Spend 5mins with this guy and you will leave with a smile on your face.

... and the baked goods are great too! Inside and outside seating. A little off the main road, but worth searching for :).

Not on the main strip and have to have address before trying to find. Very small coffee house, with outside sitting area.

A true local spot with wonderful coffee, happy and friendly baristas and good breakfast food. A definite must! A little hard to find- it is set back from the street. Look for the sign on top of the building in front and just go.

Stopped in for a Latte as there was no Starbucks here. Coffee was excellent but still not as good as Starbucks. But reasonably priced for the coffee. I would stop in again.

They make an annual trip to Brazil (I think it's Brazil) and purchase their coffee beans direct from the Plantation. They roast them on site. I've only tried their regular coffee which... More

It's a coffee shop that sells coffee. The coffee was good, but not the best I've had. I am not a fancy coffee person, black or a little cream please, and this coffee was just fine. The shop is a bit tricky to find as it is hidden in an alcove- a smaller associated 'pit stop' shop is actually easier... More

This was a good coffee stop and there were nice people. Was a bit hard to find. In Sooke. Good food. Casual seating. They roast their own coffee at the place.
