Cafe Talia on Salt Spring Island

In downtown Ganges, in the old Salt Spring Telephone Exchange, resides an inviting coffee shop.

Cafe Talia has been here for four years and recently saw a change in ownership. The cafe's quality and customer service remain strong. As does the coffee.

There might be a few glitches apparent in the early days of new management. While Sherry's macchiato arrived in timely fashion, my doppio was initially forgotten. No worries, the situation was quickly remedied with its arrival and a complimentary chocolate croissant.

The coffee used at Cafe Talia is fair trade and organic from Ethical Bean on the mainland. It is a rich and strong brew and highly enjoyable.

Thus far the new ownership is offering excellent service, and good coffee, without the attitude one sometimes finds in other shops on Salt Spring. We had coffee here several times during our week on Salt Spring and we will return again.
