We have used the Common Loaf many times for lunch and coffee stops. Everything’s freshly made, drinks and food. There is a good lunchtime menu including some good sandwiches. A good variety of drinks also. Getting a table inside can be a bit tricky in rainy weather, but it’s worth persevering. In good weather there is seating outside.

Cinnamon buns definitely a must try. However, the service was very slow and the staff weren’t very helpful with basic questions. Better places in town for coffee and breakfast.

Bread was very good. Service was a notch down from the last time we were there. Pretty helpful though and probably the best bakery in Tofino. We enjoyed Zoe’s in Ucluelet better.

I understand places that are Cash Only, but this place carries it further. If you pay in US dollars they charge the same amount as the Canadian dollar price. Thus they make a 33% profit above the profit on the food. The pastries were OK.

We are currently traveling through the West of Canada. We were looking for some place to have breakfast and ended in the Common Loaf Bake shop. We ordered bagels with fried eggs and ham. The bagel was ok, the coffee a bit too light. Service was friendly and the price ok.

Hi,
We don’t make bagels. Perhaps you were at a different spot.
Cheers
