The Broken Paddle is a small coffee house located directly across from the old Metchosin School, a minute’s walk from the Community Fire Hall and Fair Grounds on Happy Valley Road. We use organic fair trade coffee roasted here in Victoria and have a two group Cimbali turning out excellent espresso shots all day.

There are revolving art shows that keep it beautifully interesting, local politics and good conversation, and a welcoming environment where you can rest your feet or get a cup to go.

We have fresh baking created from scratch every day, light lunches, homemade chai, and locally sourced ingredients wherever possible, like delicious Blue Haze Farm apple cider.

The Broken Paddle has become a destination for locals and newcomers to the region, seeking the world-class galleries, parks, and beaches that Metchosin has to offer.

Cash or debit is accepted.
