Stopped for a quick bite of lunch after eye appointment. Never been before and was pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere and how comfortable it was. Plus the food was good and service great. Have been back a few times.

I am obsess with their Gingerbread cream stuffed cookies! To die for! The coffee is also amazing and the wraps! Service is always friendly and very helpful.

Always go here for a coffee moment. Whether you stay inside by the comfy couches or enjoy a sunny day outside tables with a tasty treat, this is where the locals go.

I think service and quality have dropped a bit with new ownership but still good place for good coffee and comfortable place to sit and visit. Probably top 2-3 coffee places in Salmon Arm. Nice that locally owned.
