Brazen Poppy Bakery

Looking for a spot for a morning Latte or a light lunch?  Well, you might want to slide by THE BRAZEN POPPY BAKERY in PARKSVILLE.  I’ve enjoyed coffee there many times in the past year with a variety of friends but you could check in for breakfast or lunch. 


For breakfast they feature the Morning Skillet. Home style hash browns, 2 eggs and your choice of bacon, ham, or sausage served up with toast. Or maybe a breakfast sandwich on a freshly baked bun. Brazen Poppy has some really good baked goods including Cinnamon Buns, Strudels, Muffins and Scones. I really like the Raspberry Scones. All this is baked right there every day.

For lunch it’s homemade soup and sandwiches including burgers, as well as a daily special including Perogies, Chicken a la King, Lasagna and one of my favourites, CABBAGE ROLLS. Of course, they have a full range of coffee, tea, etc. 

It’s a nice spacious joint run by very nice people. Lots of free parking too.

THE BRAZEN POPPY is in Shelly Square at the corner of Highway 19 and Shelly Road in Parksville. They are open Monday thru Friday from 7 – 5. Closed on the weekends. Check out their web site. And look at their menu. 

Just saying…
