The Courtyard Cafe is a popular spot in Qualicum Beach and I completely understand why. Friendly service (you almost feel like family), great food, and an eclectic atmosphere filled with local art. I love the home-made soups. The crepes are second to none. And the not-too-sweet sweets are fab for an early morning coffee break. Don't expect Meryl's 'sinny-buns' to... More

We had a cappuccino (which was luke warm), a caffe latte (nice and hot), and a cinnamon bun. The environment is okay - messy and cluttered. We will probably not return.

Good for crepes and breakfast, coffee and home baked goods, and lunch. Gluten free options a specialty. Courtyard for the warmer days otherwise a cosy and welcoming cafe inside. Local artist's paintings displayed on the walls, a favorite with locals.

Very tasty Gluten free with lots of choices savoury or sweet. A great spot for breakfast or lunch at a reasonable price. Service with a smile for sure the owners love what they are doing and it shows.

Love to go here for a coffee and treat. Linen napkins and table cloths along with a variety of tea pots and cups with saucers. Or just have a mug of coffee! These folks work with your food limitations. Excellent crepes as well!

Enjoyed finding this small cafe. Everything on the menu could be done gluten free without cross contamination. We had the roast beef and turkey crepewiches and the mixed berry sweet crepe. They were all very tasty esp the sweet crepe. Excellent shaved ice ice tea as well.. Food portions weren't huge but we appreciate that fact. Would highly reccomend even... More

Our hotel suggested this place for a really good lunch. Boy did she know what she was talking about. Peter greeted us when we entered and showed us to a window table. The menu is quite flexible in that you can mix and match most anything listed. Everything is made from scratch (by Meryl, Peter's better half). They specialize in... More
