We had a truly wonderful breakfast at The Snug Cafe. We had also enjoyed their homemade croissants earlier and enjoyed excellent lattes. Couldn't fault our meals of eggs, bagels, ham, cheese. Outstanding.. Would definitely go back.

I had a lovely lunch here with my son. The food was very good. We both had toasted sandwiches the were delectable. The atmosphere is very homey here and the service is very good. The people doing the cooking work very hard to do a good job and also to keep up the the endless line of patrons.

Cant find any other word to describe this place. Very homy or perhaps just comfortable for a meal. Great traditional breakfast and well worth the time to visit the place. Not cheap but worth every penny.

Every time we come to Bowen we get off the ferry and walk to the Snug Cafe. We were saddened to hear that the owner had died since our last visit, as he was always warm and welcoming. The food however was still the same as ever, and worth coming for. We have been here for two nights this time,... More

Thanks for the great review - always glad to hear of people returning on a regular basis. Wanted to let you know that the Snug is in fact a family owned business and my late husband the famous "Blu" is sadly no longer with us but the rest of the family myself Jo Hayes (Owner) William Hayes (Chef) Sarah-Jane Hayes...

The Snug Cafe is the perfect place to go for a coffee and just relax.The inside is very cute and inviting. All of the staff were very friendly. Though we didn't get anything to eat, the menu was large and there was a great variety of things to choose from. Their Matcha Lattes were good- we would recommend! It's worth... More

Had breakfast here recently. Great eggs bennie, two different ways, and a cappuccino just as ordered. Even the potatoes were yummy. We recommend giving this place a try!

It's nothing fancy, but the food was fresh and reasonably priced. It's a matter of lining up to place your order, and they'll bring it to the table. There is both inside and outside seating - all quite informal. They offer a wide selection of breakfast options, plus sandwiches and cakes/pastries.

For lunch I ate a delicious beet burger. The patty was fresh and moist with peach and avocado slices and a compliment of sauce.

This place has phenomenal service and food! In a rush to catch the ferry to the mainland? No problem, just let them know in advance and they will make sure your food is ready on time! Excellent breakfast sandwiches and great coffee! During our stay on Bowen island we made this spot a morning routine!!
