While waiting to leave wonderful Quadra Island, you must stop here to get a coffee of your choice. You are sure to enjoy it on your Ferry ride. Their coffee stays hot for a long time:) They give excellent friendly service. Before you leave Quadra Island, you must visit James Pottery. Martha and Gordon James are world renowned artists. You...

Even if it was the best coffee in the world, I will never go back, the service is beyond rude.....went for a coffee (should have waited until I got to Campbell River, or Aroma on the island) and the woman who works there is clearly not into customer service. Wasn't the first time, but now for sure I will never... More

This is the place for you! Their espresso's are made from scratch every time, using lovingly roasted beans from Vancouver. This is my daily treat.

Coffee was good. The prices of some of the other foods completly far fetched. I just dont get some peoples business plans... I had a bit of a struggle just trying to get some cream from this lady.

Excellent Coffee Business! You must get a coffee of your choice when you are in the line up from Quadra Island to Campbell River or any time. Their coffee is Devine and it stays hot for a long time. Their service is positive and quick. We don't know what we would do without them. On Quadra we always greatly enjoy... More

Tasty chai latte from scratch! We shares one of their gigantic cookies and it might possibly be one of the best we have ever eaten

The handiest place to pick up a little something before boarding the ferry. Their muffins are delic! Owners are friendly. They haven't been open for awhile so perhaps they are closed in the winter or just on holidays.

This little Coffee Wagon could be way better. People wait here for the ferry with money in their pocket and ready to spend it. Most of the time one is not greeted with any smile or enthusiasm. A smile makes such a difference, would make you feel welcome. The food/goodies are average. The coffee is most of the time fairly... More

Wow talk about an attitude. Was warned by a local to avoid but we had long wait for ferry. Didn't see the cash only sign... who does cash only at a busy ferry crossing? Anyway would not waste my money there again. I hate bad customer service. He was certainly not friendly... and the coffee wouldn't wake up a flea.
