Great coffee prepared and enjoyed in a working bike shop. good guys and relaxed atmosphere. If I was to own a bike shop, I would want it to be just like this one!

“More than a bike shop”
5 of 5 bubbles 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!

“Best espresso in town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2012

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.
