Elizabeth’s boyfriend Erik runs a coffee shop in Victoria called Township Coffee. It is awesome! It is bright and modern and sunny, with warm wood and high ceilings. The ambiance is A+.
The food is super awesome, they have sandwiches and baked goods made in their kitchen. They also have gluten-free items from a local gluten-free bakery. I had a vegan carrot cake with coconut cream icing and it was fantastic. They also make island farms soft serve ice cream, which you can get with a shot of espresso or matcha over top. Fuck yeah!
Erik is a super host. He was a bit shy on picture day so no photos of him – but he has imbued the place with a great vibe. The Sunday we were there peeps were lining up out the door and just kept coming – and then a college kid with her parents, and then 5 distance road biking guys, and then a mom with a stroller, etc etc. It is the happening spot in the Gorden Head neighbourhood.
