One of our most favourites! The Atlas Cafe might be unassuming to passersby but locals haunt this Courtenay favourite. Housed in a cozy space with gentle lighting, the Atlas has been serving up fresh plates since 1995. You’ll find a rotating ‘fresh sheet’ pressed weekly, showcasing nourishing ingredients from Vancouver Island suppliers. The Atlas is perfect for overstuffed breakfasts or uniquely crafted cocktails, and dessert. I personally can not get enough of the crème brûlée. My insider tip: if the weather is compliant, make a reservation for the hidden courtyard patio.

A gorgeous, welcoming space with a friendly staff who are happy to help visitors. They can provide maps, directions, free guides, and can even book some excursions and event tickets. While you’re there, don’t miss the Vancouver Island Exhibit Gallery located in the same building. It’s an immersive exhibit gallery that gives visitors their first taste of the Comox Valley. Sit in the ‘chair lift’ for a photo op, touch a live oyster and test your knowledge identifying local trees and plants.

Comox Lake Damn Picnic Area and or Peddle the Bear Bait Trail. It may have an intimidating name but this scenic trail should not be missed. It is 4.7-km long with minimal elevation gain. Park near the Comox Lake Damn Picnic Area and look for signage at the trailhead. Bear Bait follows the Puntledge River through a picture-perfect forest. Once you intersect with the unpaved road, head right. Follow it until you see a sign for the fish hatchery. Once you arrive at the hatchery you can continue down towards Barber’s Hole and Nymph Falls or loop back. If you venture out on a sunny day it’s worth bringing your swimsuit.

Awesome gift shop with numerous one of a kind type of souvenirs/gifts. It is shops like this that are rejuvenating 5th street in Courtenay and exactly the type of shop that Comox needs. Picked up a couple of the Vancouver Island silhouette bumper stickers that seem to be the rage of late. The store is a definite must check out and my guess is you will not leave the store empty handed.
