Where to get your Coffee on Pender Island


There’s nothing more rewarding than waking up to a bright, sunny morning and taking a sip of a freshly brewed coffee.  Whether you are caffeine-addicted, or just love a hot drink in the morning, we know that finding a good coffee shop can make all the difference.  Here are a couple of Pender Island favourites that will have you feeling like a local in no time.

  • Slow Coast Coffee

    There is nothing but rave reviews for this little coffee shop. With a perfect location over-looking Medicine Beach, this quaint café could easily become your regular haunt.  Featuring hand-plastered walls, homemade cookies (we hear they are to die for!) and chai tea, light lunches and an array of goodies that cater to all dietary requirements, this is hands-down a must-visit on Pender Island.

  • Vanilla Leaf Bakery Café

    Enjoy freshly baked goods included bagels, savoury pies, cinnamon buns and a range of sweet treats, when you visit the Vanilla Leaf Bakery Café. Get your coffee here, sit outside on the patio and deliberate over who chose the best dessert.

  • Coffee + Kitchen

    This farm-to-table restaurant has a marvelous brunch menu that serves up everything from freshly baked croissants to vegan smoothies as well as grilled cheese sandwiches.  There’s a full coffee bar here too that features Fernwood Coffee, Silk Road teas as well as fresh lemonade.
