Novel place combining good bikes and great coffee. Sandwiches, muffins available too. This is the place most coffee geeks in town gravitate to and the staff know their special orders. You can rent bikes and get good info about local rides. Primarily oriented towards road...More

This little coffee house offers great coffee in big cups, and delicious sandwiches. The place is casual and invites relaxation. It's also quiet enough to carry on a conversation!

Good little coffee shop that serves coffee the way you like. They also serve sweets. If you need anything bike, just ask @ the bike counter.

Rented bikes for the day of checking out Comox and Courtenay. Great way to get to Goose Spit park and 40 Knots Winery. Roads usually have room for cyclists and there are many paths. Would love to do more biking. Maybe next visit.

We came across this place in Courtenay off the downtown path. Not only do they sell bikes but do bike repairs while you enjoy a special coffee or tea from their snack shop. Great place to visit.

Great coffee house! I love this place. I have had Americans or lattes at Broken Spoke. This is the perfect place to get your caffeine!
