Barbs is almost always busy with plenty of locals lining up for the great food and good service. Incredible baked goods as well as gluten free bread. They usually sell out! One of the best breakfasts on the island, took me way too long to find this place!

Very popular. Good food and pleasant service. Cafeteria style place which gets crowded. Also has on site bakery with good pastries.

Lovely bakery with take-out and cafe seating, attached to a larger sit down restaurant with table service. We were a party of 7 right at lunch time on a holiday Monday and needed to wait for 20 minutes, and decided to split into two groups so we didn’t need to wait longer. The food was awesome - all home made, fresh, tasty and reasonably priced for the quality. Our group enjoyed smoothies, made-in-house veggie burgers (they also have gluten free bread) and excellent lattes. Service was very friendly and fast. They have a great selection of bakery treats, including amazing cheese sticks and cinnamon swirl pastry. This restaurant was here 25 years ago, and although it has expanded a bit, is just as lovely if not lovelier to visit today! The setting is classic west coast, open concept and exposed beams.

My husband and I met our Sister-in-Law at Barb's Buns in the early afternoon on Friday, November 10th for lattes on their patio. We were very happily surprised when we got to the Till to pay for our drinks, only to be told that it was "Customer Appreciation Day" and that they were free. Wow, thanks Barb's Buns and Staff for some awesome tasting lattes. Your generosity was very much appreciated. We will be back.

Had trouble breathing inside due to how crowded it was, also smells like non eco/scented cleaning products
