This restaurant is without a doubt the best food on Bowen ....they do not get the " best dinner " only because they dont do dinner ! For breakfast, brunch or a post-hike snack, they are fantastic.
The tomato soup is delicious, the sandwiches, paninis and french toast all outstanding.
Did I mention that they have a lovely view ?

We tried several varieties of croissant and a savoury muffin, accompanied by coffee. All were outstanding.

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.

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

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.
