This is my local coffee joint and situated on my way to work. Always prompt and friendly service, and more importantly, good coffee. Haven't eaten anything yet but all looks good. Well worth pulling off the highway for.

Have been buying beans form them for 3 years and have to say they are the best I ahve experienced in BC. Used to order form California but once finding them switched and have never looked back. Excellent selection of Ethiopian beans,

Always stop here for coffee heading up-island. Good sandwiches/panino's too! Get a straight espresso and compare versus the mall version.

I support local businesses as much as I can, that said, as much as the service is great I can't say as much for the food quality. Asked for a tuna melt minus the banana peppers. They just pulled the peppers out of a sandwich...More

This is a place we always stop when going up Island. Great coffee, baked goods, friendly atmosphere and clean washrooms. What more can you ask for?

We like to go to the Drumroaster when we are passing through Cobble Hill. They make very good coffee and espresso drinks. The cafe is also a nice place to sit and have a conversation with a friend

We can get Drumroaster coffee in many restaurants in lower Vancouver Island because it's acknowledged to be the best. We occasionally drop by the outlet to buy whole packaged roasted coffee beans that never disappoint.
