Thanks for stopping by Peter! We opened 07/07/07 with just 730 square feet...Have expanded a few times over the past decade, a lot of our space is hidden away behind closed doors for roasting and storage but the shop is about 1200 square feet now.

This is a wonderful place to meet with your friends for a coffee, tea or hot chocolate, sit and have a gab or a meeting!

We love locally owned independent coffee shops (esp since we own one) and this is a very unique, obviously popular community place with excellent coffee; skilled barista with nice people skills. We will make this our stop for coffee when we are in the area.

Very cool little coffee shop. It couldn't be more representative of the what a coffee shop should be in Sooke. They roast their own very good coffee and the food and service are great. Nice spot

The coffee here is really good. A strong flavourful roast. The baked goods were also very good. The service was extra friendly and welcoming.

Nice! Thanks for fitting Sooke into your world travels...And finding The Stick was, frankly, epic as we are not easy to find. So, having said that, to nay potential drinkers of our coffee, "I dare you to find us!"

Stick in the Mud roasts on site (they were roasting while we were there!!!) and the coffee is, not surprisingly, rich and delicious. Staff is super friendly and there is a constant stream of people coming in for their caffeine fix. They have two sections...More
