“Average food/coffee, high noise levels even when not crowded”

Toast has friendly staff, and an informal setting with historic rock posters, etc. However, the coffee and food is average. The space itself is impossible for socializing due to high noise levels.

A pair of sisters run this charming cafe in the tiny town of Sidney. The salads are fantastic, the soup is always good, there are comfy places to sit and a bright charming atmosphere.

No, I'm not a relative! :) My husband and I have been going to Toast on a regular basis for 3-4 years. Usually for breakfast, sometimes for lunch or just coffee/latte (not open for dinner). The owners and staff are welcoming and upbeat. The cafe oozes with energy and you feel great just being there. They know regular customers by name (and that tells you something!). There is a wide variety of menu items, fresh and delicious. Because it's so popular, it can be noisy but people come and go so one minute it's hectic, the next it's not. They make the best latte in Sidney (and Victoria, as far as I'm concerned). Salt Spring Island coffee (rich, dark and delicious). Outdoor seating is limited (picnic table in front plus benches nearby).

This is a great little place a block off the main drag. Good coffees and light breakfast selections. Great lunch choices, everything fresh. Doors are kept wide open and seating varies from standard tables to overstuffed armchairs to stools with high window tables. There is a large picnic table in front to accommodate people with dogs or a large group. The ambience here is really nice. Very laid back and homey. Close at 4PM.

We became hungry driving the coastal route to Sidney from Victoria and happened on this cute little sandwich place. The roast beef sandwiches on fresh bread with fresh veggies were exceptional. If all you want is a little something, you won't be disappointed. I could only eat half , got a to-go bag and ate the rest later that afternoon on the ferry to Vancouver.
