Breakfast spot for us. Nice outdoor seating in front or on the rear patio. Reliably good food every visit and there’s a large & growing case of quality GF baked goods. Busy spot so be prepared to wait a bit for cooked orders.

Has a really pretty patio, which is the highlight. Unfortunately the baked goods - particularly the muffins were mediocre at best. We also were overcharged, which becomes complicated when it’s cash only and you have no receipt. Coffee was decent, but there are better options in town. I wouldn’t return.

Tried breakfast at a couple of places in Tofino and they were much alike. Tasteless sausages in greasy wraps. Then on recommendation we tried here. My wife had the granola,fruit and yoghurt. Huge portion of tasty granola, not sweetened to death, although additional honey available if wanted. I tried the next day and was very impressed. The guy serving behind the counter was a great character, who would brighten any day.
We took scones away for lunch later in day, but if I had had room I would loved to try their cinnamon buns, they looked gorgeously sticky.

If you are in Tofino, a must try experience.

Decided to pop in as in my many trips to Torino I only have gone to Rhino, what a mistake. Bran muffin tasted like cardboard, coffee was mediocre and worst of all we sat outside due to lack of indoor seating and the music as SO LOUD and horrible. We had half our coffees and less than that of the muffin and left. Not good.

Always a great bowl of Homemade soup and multigrain bread waiting for a quick meal on the run whilst touring the West Coast.
