TASTE CAFE, Parksville

Not long ago our coffee gang tried the Taste Cafe in the Beach Club retail complex at 173 Island Highway West. It is a great location with a view of the beach and ocean and the patio would be perfect in the summer months.


They have a good selection of Tea and Coffee along with pastries. However, I  don’t think it will satisfy an early morning caffeine fix since they don’t open till 9 on weekdays and 10 on Saturday. Also they are closed on Sunday and Monday and Holidays too. Definitely not Starbucks hours!

We sat inside and while I don’t like to sound negative the place is kind of cold. Not warm and inviting at all. The chairs are truly uncomfortable metal things. Don’t plan on parking here with your iPad or laptop. You won’t be comfortable.

Having said that, the coffee was good and the cake I had was delicious. If you are craving a coffee between 9 and 4, give it a try. But I’m not going back until the sun is shining in their patio in June.

Just saying…
