Whether you're from Bowen Island or you're just in for a visit, you'll notice that there are tons of interesting and unique things to do in the area that aren't your typical run of the mill sightseeing. And one of those things is this adorable little hidden shack nestled right in the nook of the Bowen Island Marina.
I know, it's so cute you can hardly handle right?!
Branch & Butter is a teeny tiny little cafe shack that serves toast and ice cream. It's as simple as that, but in the spring and summer months, this simple snack can go a long way.
The rustic shack serves a unique selection of toasts made with bread from Birds & The Beets, meaning you won't find any avocado toast here. Their menu includes items like; Experience Card made with Salt Spring Island blueberry basil jam, seasonal berries, homegrown basil, and ricotta; and Ice Cream Toast that comes with your favourite scoop of Earnest Ice Cream. Is your mouth drooling already or what?
And if toast isn't really your thing, then ice cream MUST be. Serving up your favourite flavours from Earnest, Bread & Butter will satisfy all your screaming needs.
Bread & Butter is only open seasonally, so you won't be able to get your ice cream and toast fix until April. But that being said, the more unique aspect of this cafe is that there's actually a retail store next door.
Branch 01 is a hip boutique gift shop that embodies the chill Pacific North-West vibes. The magical shop features gifts and unique one of a kind objects that have been carefully curated by the owners, Branch Freedman and Robin Macmillan.
So whether you're looking for a little snack or a thoughtful gift from Bowen, you definitely have to visit this low key tourist destination.
