    Use to love their cinnamon buns. When we come over from Vancouver we have to get them. Because they’re not open on the weekend, I asked my mother in law to pick up eight for us. I was so disappointed……definitely not as decadent as before. Seems a bit too bready now and the filling isn’t as gooey or tasty. Please go back to your original recipe….. Update - Thanks to the owner for replying. My husband and I have had the cinnamon bun after it was a day old…..this was a few years ago…..and it still tasted great. We both agree it’s not like it use to be.

    Okay, where to start! Sandwiches - 5+ stars, fresh and tasty and absolutely delicious. Baked Goods - 5+ stars, I'm not a fan of sweets myself but I can eat their cinnamon buns any day! I have purchased sweets for others from here they they all have said the products are fresh, not grossly sweet, but perfectly yummy. The staff - 5+ stars. Love when a small business is just so inviting and friendly. Always make me feel welcome. I wish them the very best.

    Best (read strongest) latte I've had in the Comox Valley. Berry muffin absolutely delicious and healthy tasting. Go for the quality and if you love friendly service. If you are in a hurry, might not be the best choice for you.

    Great little cafe. Good breakfast sandwiches and baked goods. Turkey turnover is to die for.

    I stopped in for lunch, had chicken pie and peanut butter cookies. Delicious! This Bakery is for sale on Cape Breton Island and has wonderful staff. If you want a business in Paradise, here it is 😋

    Best cinnamon buns we’ve ever had. Warm and fresh daily. Amazing.

    Good food, really good cinnamon buns (delish dough) I feel like they used to have more frosting and now quite skimpy but still a yummy yummy cinnamon bun. The sandwhiches I have had have always been amazing. I find the owner can be quite brusk and unfriendly (offered to help deliver once and set up chairs once and both times he quite snapped at me) but the lemonaide is AWESOME. (edit since owners reply) I can't say I am at all surprised his reply was unfriendly. This was a 4 star review (dropped now to 2) with a ton of compliments, no "hey thanks for the comment, so glad you love our food (and lemonaide) just sooo defensive. Hey, if you don't want me to take water out to a customer, there is a nice way to say it, (gosh, thanks so much for offering, but we have to do it ourselves) And, we arrived before 9, waited till about 5 past to approach the door, you snarked at me you weren't ready, I offered to help you take the chairs out you were setting up outside and was snarked at again. Clearly, I wont be back. Your manner is extremely off-putting to someone who has only ever tried to be kind)

    Great cinnamon buns, would have liked a few more grab and go savoury options. But a truly great cinnamon bun, soft and fresh with a good amount of icing.

    A great place to support local and get your morning fill! We arrived right at 9:00am as we were headed out of town and unfortunately many of the treats were not yet available. Reviewing a 5/5 for what we DID enjoy - an oat milk latte with their house made vanilla syrup (though not much vanilla to taste) The breakfast bar - very filling, easily shareable and a peanut butter lover's dream. Support local!

    Went to Frankie Jo's today to try one of their cinnamon buns. Cinnamon buns sell fast and were gone. I had the vegetable tart instead and it was absolutely 💯 more than I expected! So much vegetables and flavour! It also was quite filling. I'm already planning to grab some of these for a upcoming camping trip! Flavour party!

    Wife and I went for a coffee whilst waiting for a local shop to open. A good choice. Had a cinnamon bun which we both thought the best we have ever tasted. The speedy buns we took for lunch also excellent. Staff very helpful and entertaining not surprising there were many returning customers

    The staff are so friendly and fun here! Best sandwich and London fog I’ve had. A must visit if you’re in the area!!! 10/10

    Cinnamon Buns are likely THE best on Vancouver Island. Made in smaller quantities than other top-ranked Ladysmith Bakery, may be the key factor!

    I had a wheat free gluten free brownie. It was amazing!! The tea was delicious!! Definitely going back soon.

    Best sausage roll I've ever tasted!! (And that's a big deal, coming from a Brit) The vegan sandwich was also amazing - lots of delicious fillings and home made warm bread. We will be back!
