Amazing aromas greet you at the door of the new home of Rhodos Coffee and Bistro, just two doors away from their previous location at 360 Eighth St in Courtenay.

This warmly decorated larger space has allowed owners John Sanzana and Kellie Pierson to expand their menu to include enticing breakfast and lunch options, while still offering up their delicious blends of organic coffee, roasted in-house.

Mouth-watering breakfast items include Pulled Pork Pancakes, Pumpkin Spice French Toast and Croque Madame as well as Breakfast Quickies and The Super Quickie. Tantalizing new luncheon choices are offered alongside gluten-free options and baked goodies as well as their tempting soups and salads. You can also pick up a bag of your favourite coffee beans and have them custom ground while you enjoy a break from your busy day.

An ever-changing collection of photographs provided by the Comox Valley Camera Club adorn the walls alongside paintings by local artists, resulting in a warm, comfortable atmosphere that is hard to leave.

Combining this space with scrumptious food, an inviting atmosphere, and superb customer service, Rhodos is the new place to be in the Comox Valley.

Monday through Friday, it is open from 7 a.m. until 5:30 p.m., Saturdays from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. and Sundays from 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. Weekend brunch is available until 2 p.m.

Recent visitors to the Valley, Terri and Trevor from Lethbridge, were overheard saying: “What a lovely spot with a great atmosphere — and the food was absolutely delicious. We’ll definitely be back the next time we’re on the Island.”

Make sure to visit soon with your friends — you’ll be glad you did.
