Awesome soy latte at a spot where you wouldn't expect to find any coffee at all! And the ice cream was even better.

Stopped briefly here to have a coffee while watching the rain. The owner/patron was very good company - interested in your story and interesting to talk with about the local area. Nice coffee too!

Serves coffee, pop, ice-cream bars and other non-perishable sundries to hikers coming off the trail or people at the beach. It is close enough to the Pier that boaters can grab something too.

Lovely meeting at the end of the Queen Charlotte track. We were served hot drinks and cookies. What else do you need more after a long hike :-)
