Reviewed 27 October 2013

This is a rather unassuming cafe/deli on the way into Ucluelet. We frequented it for lattes four years ago, and finally decided to give it a try on our last day in town (October 7). We were sorry we hadn't visited earlier because their lattes more than measure up to the other spots in town and in Tofino. It doesn't have a cafe-type vibe, it's a bit utilitarian in appearance, but if you want a good drink, made to order, this is the place. There are a couple of tables by the window that we favour. My husband had his latte with a pumpkin puree as opposed to the typical syrup and thought it a vast improvement as it wasn't too sweet. We also shared a carrot muffin, baked from an old family recipe, and enjoyed that too. Service was very personable.

Wanting something not fried we stopped in for a sandwich after a whale watching tour. Sandwiches were a good size and delicious. You pick your bread, meat, cheese and other toppings. They have other tasty treats as well. We tried a spanikopia and it was delicious.

We stopped here after our whale watching for a warm savoury pastry, the servers were all really friendly and the prices were very reasonable. They had all sorts there - sandwiches, cakes, pastries, coffee, salad, cookies, ice creams...

We had an ice cream too and they have a good selection of flavours.
