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

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.

Great little cafe in Ucluelet for breakfast and coffee. Had a delicious breakfast muffin and cappuccino. Very friendly staff. Local art on walls and vintage music/decor create a fun and relaxing vibe. Free wifi too!
