About Us

We set forth in the autumn of 2012 to see the world, two humans and three dogs. Our intrepid leader was Poncho. His nose was our compass pointing us to the cafes of Spain, Germany, Italy, France, the United States, Mexico and Guatemala. All fell under the spell of Poncho as we followed his quest to savour the best espresso on the planet. Poncho was lauded and declared “the Most Interesting Dog in the World” by all.

Upon arriving on Vancouver Island, Poncho demanded of us his own cafe where he could practice the art of making people happy.  He purchased a coffee shop, named it after himself and was happy.
