Picture 2The Snug Cafe is a small rickety old building that is almost as old as Bowen Island itself. The Snug is more than a coffee shop and far greater than a breakfast and lunch cafe. The Snug is an institution, a meeting place, a corner stone of our community. The Hayes Family took over Snug Operations in January of 2007. A family of bakers, chefs and jokers. The Hayes family believe in producing great food using the freshest ingredients possible and using local produce whenever available.  So drop on by have a coffee, have a chat…. meet the community.
