On the recommendation of a friend, we visited the bakery for lunch, and what a great lunch we had, sandwich, quiche, and shared a delicious chocolate pecan cinnamon bun, delightfully decadent, might just be the best I have ever tasted!

It is worth the stop! If you are on your way to Tofino or the cottage this is a perfect place to have a break and a coffee. Delicious goods in a nice atmosphere. There’s a lot of room for family and small groups.

Great service and atmosphere. Best cinnamon buns ever. Lots of other delicious food as well. Easily situated in downtown Ladysmith. Easy walk from anywhere on the main street. Cosy atmosphere to enjoy coffee and a book.

Cinnamon buns are absolutely phenominal. Visit store once/twice a month for a bowl of soup, nine grain buns and of course a cinnamon bun.

The only downside of this bakery was how hard it was to pick something out of the line up. We were in the area on holiday, and this was such a treat to have nearby. Amazing food, lovely service.
