“Hits the spot”
Reviewed 14 November 2013 via mobile

A great little coffee shop right in the harbour. Has a beautiful view with an indoor and outdoor patio.
Stop here mid November. They had apple cider with cinnamon. Oh man, what a great tasting natural drink. No addatives, "no crap" added.
And of course it being my first time in Nanaimo, B.C. I had to sample the well known Nanaimo Bar. Wow, what a great treat; much better than I have ever had.

Stop in. You won't be disappointed.

Reviewed 26 September 2013

Nice coffee, excellent selection herbal teas but flies everywhere inside ugh! Popular with locals it seems.

“Yay good coffee!”
Reviewed 9 September 2013

It can be hard to find a good cup of coffee on the road but this was a great find along the waterfront walkway. Excellent espresson drinks.
