Julie and Christophe have built themselves an amazing reputation on the island. French pastries... awesome muffins... French breads... great sandwiches and an array of delicacies come from the kitchen for breakfast and lunch.

I love Artisan Eats. This is a cozy place to meet friends for a fancy latte, or a classic coffee. Their muffins are the best, along with the brioche. The staff are always friendly and it's a lovely spot to relax and rejuvenate after a hike through the woods.

My husband took me here for brunch and it was wonderful! Eggs were poached to perfection and our americanos were rich in flavour. Service was great and with a smile. Yes, this is a short review but we left here happy, full and satiated.

Stopped by with my wife. I had an amazing chicken panini and she had the mushroom soup, both super tasty. This place also has an amazing view of the bay down below. Definetly check it out if you can.

So glad you enjoyed! That must have been the Thai Chicken Panini with chili rub & cilantro mayo. One of my faves! ;) We never get tired of looking out at the view from here! More

My wife and I want to Bowen Island to visit a friend. he took us to Artisan Eats . Nice place in the square with view of the ocean. The place is relatively busy. Coffee is good, croissants and breakfast sandwich were very good. I went back , later that day, for just a coffee.

This is an order at the cooler, food brought to your table type of place. They have a great variety of entrees with choice of sandwich, soup, etc. You can eat there or take out, really a lunch time option rather than dinner.

There were so many wonderful options to choose from that it took me a while to decide. I settled on the Chicken Chermoula Panini. It was fantastic!!! I will definitely return...probably tomorrow before the ferry back.

We recently stumbled on this place and picked up items for lunch and breakfast on our boat. What a great find! Terrific quiches and sandwiches, and a perfect caprese salad. Highly recommended!

So glad you enjoyed Barbara! And great of you to venture up to Artisan Square from the comfort of you boat in that beautiful Bowen marina. A whole different view it offers! More

Perfect breakfast on a lazy Sunday morning. Cappuccino, buttermilk pancakes with raspberry confit and a side of bacon sitting on a lovely patio enjoying the people coming and going. A not e of caution: The pastries and breads are to die for and should be bought with caution as they are highly addictive.
