Regardless of how delicious the food can be, the lack of tact and customer service the owner has is appalling. Because of this I will never go back. In this case... the owner is always right and don't dare question them.

We treat our customers the way we would like to be treated until proven other wise... That was why you were asked not to come back. We also beleive the customer is not always right.

Celiac's heaven. Allergies are taken seriously here and if you're gluten intolerant or sensitive or a celiac, the staff here take that quite seriously and will create a sterile prep table to eliminate any cross contamination. Also, the coffee is the best in town hands...More

River City Coffee is a local hub, being the first to roast coffee in Powell River (est.1994) we know our coffee. Its not all about the coffee though, extensive arrangement of baking made fresh daily and delicious eatery options, something for everyone; the healthy, not-so-healthy, vegan, gluten free, dairy free and vegetarian. "Local to the last drop" Come in for breakfast, lunch, coffee, a snack or early dinner !
