Just watching and listening to the staff performing makes any wait seem shorter. These folks are entertaining, for sure! My lunch of roasted red pepper and tomato bisque and turkey/cranberry panini were delicious. Shirley Delicious is a little out of the way at 19 km (12 miles) West of Sooke, but it's well worth the drive. There were other things on the menu that I would like to try, so I'll need to go back for another lunch later this summer!

My husband and I stopped in to grab a bite to eat and the place was packed late afternoon on a weekday. Soup, sandwiches on house baked foccacia and an inventive range of pastries. The croissant with basil, , olives and cherry tomatoes was still warm and we should have bought more. It is definitely a great stop for all ages. Cozy inside and nice sunny outdoor seething. Plan on it of you are on the road to Port Renfrew or on Sooke. We will be back.

If you want a unique place to stop by for a "delicious" bite Shirley Delicious is definitely worth the drive. My husband, myself and our dog stopped here twice during a recent trip to Sooke. This is THE place to go if you love great (and I mean GREAT) coffee! We roast our own coffee beans and we are FUSSY about our coffee. This place knows how to produce a superb Latte. The scones and muffins will tempt you beyond your willpower to resist and allow Phillip to advise you about what's the best offering that day. Everything is prepared in- house and is fresh and tasty. It's reasonably priced, the atmosphere rocks and dogs are adored! I/we/we and the dog LOVED this place. We'll be back even if it means driving kilometres out of our way! And by the by, the drive there is amazing.

We hoped that Shirley Delicious, opened just a year ago by Philippe and Sheena who migrated from Salt Spring Island, would be a success. We had waited for two years for someone to take over this location. Thay have made it a real going concern! When we drove in from Colorado and saw SD was open we were ecstatic they had survived the winter. This is a place for locals as well as tourists passing through. It was locals that kept them in business over the winter. It is good! It is delicious! They make their own pastries on site; they are wonderful! Their coconut cream pie is to die for! We have a vacation home (French Beach House) about 3 kilometers away and usually walk the back way through the woods which provides suficient appetite for their hearty, delicious brunch items. They use local ingredients where possible. There is outdoor seating which is great in the summer. They are open for breakfast, lunch, and afternoon snacks, closing at 5:00 pm.
