The Best Way To Start Your Day

Is there any better start to a morning than the freshly brewed smell of coffee and baked goods? Start your day off right with a visit to one of the Comox Valley's great coffee shops and bakeries, where you'll find some of Vancouver Island's most sought-after donuts, pastries, and so much more.

The rise in bakeries (pun intended) here is enough to satisfy all sweet and savoury toothed travellers. From unique twists on classics to old-fashioned delights, while considering a variety of dietary needs, you are sure to find something you didn’t even know you were craving!

Cumberland Village Bakery has been baking for over 100 years in the same location, so naturally, their original donut has become world-famous! Stop in for a taste of that local history or try a more modern invention: the stuffed cronut!

Specializing in slow fermented sourdough bread and pastries from their Tin Town location, Honey Grove Bakery is a not-so-hidden gem anymore! This artisan bakery supplies many of the local coffee shops with their tasty baked treats which are also available at the Saturday Farmer’s Market.

If you like a challenge of hard choices, Cakebread Artisan Bakery & Hot Chocolates is the place for you! Do you go with a slice of cake, stuffed croissant or chocolate made in-house?

Church St. Bakery is known for its wood-fired pizza and sourdough bread, but they also whip up a tasty variety of pastries, soups and sandwiches. A delicious stop from breakfast to dinner!

No matter what you’re craving, The Flying Apron will have something to satisfy you. From grab-and-go items to custom cake orders, some of their treats are almost too beautiful to eat.

OMG Macarons elevate hand-crafted macarons to an art form! They also have an assortment of other whimsical pastries such as eclairs, tarts, and creampuffs.

Surrounded by an abundance of local ingredients, we continue to see more vendors at the Farmers’ Market dishing out baked goods. Look for vendors like Alderlane Farmhouse Bakery which bags up savoury and sweet items, The Pretzel Guyz for authentic Bavarian Pretzels, and Roots Rising for gluten-free and vegan options. Come discover the flavours from every corner of the Comox Valley!
