The Broken Spoke Coffee House
Ranked #2 of 8 Coffee & Tea in Courtenay
Restaurant details
Reviewed 28 September 2012 via mobile

If you are in Courtenay,BC be sure to visit the Broken Spoke. I haven't used their bicycle repair services but their specialty coffees are excellent. And I can't remember having a better muffin. Great, friendly service. Highly Recommended!

I live in Courtenay and have am a coffee fanatic. I've tried pretty much every place in the Valley and have almost always been disappointed. Broken Spoke is one of the few places I can more or less consistently get excellent espresso, macchiato and cappuccino. That said, it depends on who is the barista. The fellow with the australian (or NZ?) accent is your best bet. His partner is a bit hit or miss by comparison. They use coffee roasted by Discovery in Victoria (the best on the Island). They have a cool bike shop in half their space with some neat cruiser style bikes.

We are visiting BC from southern California and stumbled on this really neat bike shop and coffee house. We are road cyclists and regularly cycle three times a week and average around 100+ miles weekly.

The coffee and muffin were fabulous. Latte was thick and creamy with a leafy design on top when served. And, the bike shop is very upscale with beautiful wooden floors and tables and benches. Everything is very well laid out with a good selection of clothing, accessories and bikes. One of the most interesting aspects of the layout is the bicycle repair area which is right at the front of the shop. Most bike shops we are familiar with have the mechanics and repairs at the back of the shop. We thought that this layout worked quite well. Customers could get a sense of what types of things they need to be concerned about, i.e., tuneups, chains, safety accessories like lights & helmets, etc. Very, Very Nice Shop. And, the barristas and shop attendants were all friendly and quite welcoming.
