“Great breakfast or brunch spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2013

French patisserie meets west coast granola vibe! Laid back atmosphere but good quality pastries, sandwiches, muffins etc. a great place for an extended breakfast/brunch. Too bad they could not warm up the pain au chocolat in the oven but my muffin was truly outstanding! Lucky Bowen Island to have such a great place.

“Awesome French Pastries”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2013

Nice vibe, and really yummy pastries. Most of the cooks are from France and it shows in the food. Their soups are really good.

“Fun Local Diner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 January 2013

This is a regular spot for my family. We love going there to enjoy the fresh food, beautiful view, and great ambiance. Filled with both locals and tourists, Artisan Eats is a gem. The staff are friendly and helpful and the servers are attentive. The previous reviews criticizing the "waitresses", (btw, known as food servers) seem a tad suspicious to me - maybe a disgruntled ex employee? This is an "order at the counter, find a seat (sometimes communal), gather your cutlery and condiments, and wait for your food" kind of eatery. Not a sit down and be served restaurant. The baked goods are excellent and fresh made daily and the menu is updated frequently. It really is a must visit when you make a trip to Bowen. It's walkable from the ferry but is at the top of a rather steep hill, fyi.

“Worth a trip from Vancouver”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2012 via mobile

This French-inspired rustic eatery has the best chaussons aux pommes outside of Lyon! Try the crispy thick-cut fries with the Turkish lamb burger at the communal table, looking out at the view of the North Shore mountains rising above Howe Sound, or better yet back inside at the mountain of meringues, croissants and other delicacies. For lighter fare, the nori bar with a little red chlii sauce. Fresh-baked breads and a bustling atmosphere.
