We went to Jan's cafe on Sept 11, a Sunday. Based on tripadvisor, it should be open from 9 - 3. The cafe was hard to find, it was tucked next to the co-op store so we circled around the block a couple of times...More

This is an indoor and outdoor cafe with good food a little expensive. It is special because it has wifi and on Hornby this is rare. The drinking water is brackish, as everywhere on the island.

Possibly the best place on Hornby Island for a delightful brunch! The food and service add to the overall "Hornby" experience. The Ringside Market is not to be missed!

We enjoyed the food, it was fast and served hot. The best were these fantastic energy bars in front of the cash register made with coconut, almonds, cherries and chocolate chips. I had one every day we were there and wish I had another right...More
