We were here last September and loved it then. Came back and it's still wonderful. Effervescent refers to Philip, the owner who is bubbling over with the joy of hospitality. Wonderful refers to the great sandwiches and pastries that they make fresh everyday.After visiting one of the local provincial parks or beaches, this is THE place on the highway to stop and refresh.

This place is just the ideal coffee/lunch spot. Philip is really welcoming and the atmosphere is incredibly friendly. The breakfast burrito is amazing, and the sandwiches and snacks all worth trying. The coffee is really good and actually strong (a thing that is not a given in Canada), so definitely worth stopping if you are passing.

While visiting Victoria I drove out to Shirley Delicious in Shirley, BC in late June. I had read many positive reviews on Tripadvisor. I wasn't disappointed. They serve a varied menu of vegan friendly and omnivore-biased sandwiches that were well prepared and consisted of locally-sourced, where possible, ingredients. Gluten free options are also available and these include the sandwiches as well as many desert and baked good offerings.

The establishment is unique and the decor is a mix of rural-meets-eclectic with local art on display as well as posters informing of area music festivals and local events. Useful information if time allows to continue exploring the surrounding area which is, in itself, a great reason to make the drive from Victoria.

Great coffee, great cookies and cakes (including a wide selection of gluten-free items), friendly service, nice surroundings, ample parking. A bit cramped and stuffy when busy, but that's a price well worth paying. Said by locals to the best such place for miles around.
