Why locals love it
There's nothing unusual about the coffee or snacks here. But it's a super relaxed neighbourhood hangout filled with people of all ages during the day. The owners set the tone for a friendly vibe. And 3-4 nights a week they have live folk and bluegrass (the show ends early, leaving you lots of time to take in another venue).
If you're staying downtown, enjoy a gorgeous walk here, over the bridge, on Harbour Road, then on the path through Dockside Green & Bamfield Park.
