Very good coffee. Visited both mornings in Shawnigan Lake. The attached bakery is also excellent. Didn’t try the chocolates but they looked amazing.

This little coffee shop is the engine of Shawnigan Lake. And sitting beside it is a wonderful bakery that has some of the best gluten free muffins on the island e.g. white chocolate and raspberry. They're big, tasty and really well-priced. If you're driving north...More

Welcoming and lots of choices! Enjoyed the friendly staff and helpful suggestions. Enjoyed a soy latte and muffin! Then had to try the lavender truffle-rich and it just melts in your mouth. Sit out front or inside! Centre of Shawnigan by the four way stop....More
