We stopped in here for breakfast before a big day of adventures. It was excellent. Great coffee and an amazing London Fog. We both ordered the breakfast wrap and weren't disappointed. Even more amazing was the very friendly staff who were helpful and on point. Definitely would recommend and support their business.

It's reputation in good standing, I decided to have breakfast there, enjoying simultaneously the Breakfast burito and a superb caffe latte, which turned out to be a case for repeat because it was so good. While there, the Cafe never really emptied, with a constant change of regulars and less regulars. A definite return...

Dropped in this morning for a couple of Latte's - excellent as usual. The summertime crowds are absent, the pace is slower and we learn that the Cafe will be closed until after Christmas! Lucky us, no trip to Ukee would be complete without a Latte from the Barkley Cafe! Happy Holiday Guys!

I have to say the customer service was great and the food was very good. I enjoyed the coffee beans as we took some back to our resort and French pressed it. I had the espresso in the cafe and it was smooth and creamy. It's a popular local place and everyone seems to know each other but you do... More

We thought we had had soup there once before, but when we went in at 12 noon and asked if they had soup, we were told "no" and no breakfast either, in a surly manner. We hadn't asked for breakfast. Those were the only actual words he spoke to us during the whole time we were there. Something told me... More

Thank you for stopping by the coffee shop. We are very sorry to hear about your experience. My husband and I worked very hard for several years, building and creating the Barkley Cafe, with a warm, inviting atmosphere. This must've been an off day for our staff and dearly apologize. We are closed for Decor updates - fresh paint, floor... More

We were walking in the town of Ucluelet and come across this little cafe. We ordered a panini grilled Mozzarella Basil pesto sandwich and Americano. We always order Americano because no many places make strong enough regular coffee. The sandwich was good, just slightly undercooked (due to cheese was too cold from the fridge). Service was friendly and it is... More

We chose Barkley Cafe for breakfast and coffee while visiting the area in November. It's easy to find with a huge parking lot. The staff is friendly, the food was good and the coffee was hot. There is beautiful local artwork on the walls, and big windows with a few tables to eat at. Our only complaint was that after... More

Stopped in around 9:30am for coffee before heading home. Excellent coffee shop for specialty coffees with a unique west coast atmosphere. Has home made baked squares and muffins but also specializes in breakfast sandwiches. I had an extraordinary classic breakfast sandwich on a Panini bun! Great service as well! Highly recommend the Barkley Café.
