Tofino is fogged in as usual. Great Cinnamon roll and coffee. Time to hit the road! AAA. It was the only coffee shop I could find that was open at 8.00am.

Great food, great service, delicious bakery. A must when you visit Tofino! Whether you want to dine in or take a meal to go, it's worth a repeat visit during your trip. Try the Loafer Breakfast!

Ordered a panini at 1:03pm. Paid the cashier $10 and received no change. At 1:23 I asked how long does it normally take for a pain, the girl said "I don't know I have to ask the kitchen. Maybe 15-30 minutes?" She never asked anyone....More

We stopped by this spot to pick up some baked goods to take home to our kids. Great variety of home baked goods, sandwiches, coffees, teas, etc. The squares and cookies were gigantic. Lots of people were sitting around and enjoying a coffee. Delicious date...More

I have been going here every morning for breakfast. The food is amazing and baked fresh everyday. Love the fresh bread and their pizzas are fabulous!

I just had a carryout sandwich and bakery from here, but everything that I ate was tremendous! I wish that we had discovered this prior to our departure as we would have dined here more often.

I still love their coffee and baked goodies after all these years! It was great to see some things haven't been destroyed by the hoards of visitors..

Common Loaf is one of my favorite place in Tofino. They have really good food, cheap coffee, great staff and calm atmosphere. Only thing that I would change is that you need to pay cash, which is pretty annoying since there is only one bank...More

Good and crowded. Try the breakfast pizza. Coffee refills are extra 90 cents. This is a very popular place for breakfast so go early for the widest selection and to be sure to be seated. They have good scones, croissants, and quiche.

We lived pretty close for 6 days and bought our yummy breakfast buns and coffee here every morning. Good variety if you are early enough.
