We can get Drumroaster coffee in many restaurants in lower Vancouver Island because it's acknowledged to be the best. We occasionally drop by the outlet to buy whole packaged roasted coffee beans that never disappoint.

The best!! Introduced to this coffee house by a local. I was a Starbucks junkie, but I will travel out of my way to go to Drumroaster now. Truly the best coffee and lattes. Their baked goods are delicious, cinnamon brioche..mmmm . Locally owned. Now if they only did Cashew Nut milk for their lattes....:)

Really a great coffee. Travelling with friends who have a summer place near by were certain this was the best coffee around, so I was more than happy to stop with them. They were right.

Whether it's the smell, the sight or the hustle and bustle of a good coffee shop, you can always get a perfect coffee experience at Drumroaster. Great coffee, snacks and atmosphere. Having a repair shop next door is like looking at high end Italian sports cars in the Lamborghini or pininfarina factory while sipping a coffee. No nonsense coffee done... More

Coffee is what a coffee shop is all about, this Drumroaster doesn't disappoint. I requested a Cortado, and although it wasn't on the coffee menu it was made up without question and was nice and strong. There's a nice outdoor patio area which is obviously a local meeting place.
