There was a large group of us looking for a place to grab a bite in Telegraph Cove and we decided to stop here. The selection was relatively small, but the food was delicious. Because it was a large group the food did take a little while to prepare, but they're working in a super small space so it's totally... More

Whilst visiting Telegraph Cove we decided to stop for coffee at this cafe. We just had tea and coffee in lovely china mugs which you could drink whilst wandering around the harbour. Some customers had full meals, i.e. fish and chips etc which you could see being cooked at the rear of the building. The smell was wonderful and they... More

We ate here several evenings and as the weather was so warm, we sat out on the patio, which overlooks the small harbour/marina. While enjoying our meal, we could watch the various activities going on in the harbour. If the weather is dry and warm, then the open-air seating arrangements are perfect. Several tables did have canopies and there was... More

Just before the cafe closed for the winter we went out to Telegraph Cove one more time. After a lovely walk along the boardwalk & a visit to the general store it was time for lunch. It was a beautiful sunny but cool day so we wanted a hot drink without the caffeine. Our server recommended an herbal tea latte... More

The crepe style pancakes made a terrific breakfast, complemented by a very tasty cafe latte. The staff were quite friendly, even early in the morning.

Had a great sandwich, slice of banana bread and a cup of coffee. The servers were friendly and it seems like a cool place. Also bought a nice mug with First Nations artwork on it.

After our very rainy and cold whale watching tour, we were in the mood for something hot and a light desert before heading for home. The Seahorse Cafe had just what we needed. Their hot coffee and variety of pastries hit the spot and was the perfect end to our day. Theis unique gallery has something for everyone, even the... More

We snuck in just before closing when we arrived in Telegraph Cove. The food was very good, we shared Fish & Chips and Fish Tacos. Both were good food truck level and pricing. Friendly staff. Lots of tables on the dock, many that are sheltered for the local weather. Be sure to check their hours, we were lucky.
