ALSO SERVES GREAT FOOD
What greets you at the door is the friendly staff and second-home comfortable atmosphere, but it’s the aroma of fresh-baked everything that reels you in.
This community hub is the heart of Salt Spring Island, attracting artists and artisans, farmers, foodies and families.
They’re here for hearty soups and cinnamon twists, amazing sourdough, salads, sandwiches, wraps and more. The fresh-made breakfast and lunch items include many island-sourced meats and produce, along with veggie and gluten-free options.
It’s the island’s best smoothie bar, with many of these as meals unto themselves. Delicious crema espresso drinks, wild west-coast smoked salmon clam chowder, in-house dressings and sweet and savory spices all round out the flavour of this classic bakery and café.
Jason and Jennifer Coles have made Barb’s the can’t-miss easy-dining destination for more than a decade, continuing the Saturday-market fresh-baked tradition that started it all. Come taste the rewards of their love for amazing food, and bon appetite!

A CLASSIC BAKERY - WITH A TWIST
Baked in-house daily with fresh ingredients, you’ll find a decadent selection of pastries, buns, breads, muffins, sweet and savoury twists, and of course perfect melt-on-the-tongue croissants. Each day is a little different depending on season and mood – perhaps a chocolate mousse, Napoleons, or fresh lemon tarts.
