Coffee Shops & Bakeries
On the Sunshine Coast, coffee shops keep you caffeinated for all types of adventure, while cozy bakeries offer the perfect reprieve from the elements.
Local roasters, including Beachcomber Coffee in Gibsons, Strait Coffee Roasters in Sechelt, and 32 Lakes in Powell River take you from bean to cup, infusing your morning latte or pour-over with a distinctly Sunshine Coast taste. Sip a cup of coffee at their cafe counterparts, where you can find java lovers enjoying spaces that range from bold and fun to bright and airy.
Sunshine Coast bakeries often feel like the equivalent of a warm hug, with their cozy interiors—many complete with wood stoves—freshly baked treats, and welcoming staff. A few local bakeries even come with their own cult following, like Nancy's Bakery in Lund, where the blackberry cinnamon bun is worth the trip all the way to Mile 0 of Highway 101. It's easy to while away a morning, lingering over a cup of coffee and a warm-from-the-oven goodie, tucked away into a tiny corner of our coastline. But when you do need to hit the road, bakeries and coffee shops can supply you with on-the-go options, ideal for strolling the Sunshine Coast's many parks, trails, and beaches.
Local tip: if picking up a beverage to-go, bring your own travel mug or purchase one locally to skip single-use plastics.
