Shirley Delicious

Just North of Sooke a small coffee shop is nestled in between tall trees and a wonderful garden,it is in the small town of Shirley,so hence the name “Shirley Delicious”
We stopped there on the way up , joined later by Roel and Ineke, we had some lunch , a homemade soup, and a huge choice of sandwiches, also homemade sausage rolls, and are they good!!!!
Most of the baked goodies are Gluten Free, which suited me just fine!
We chatted with one of the owners, a fellow from South Africa, i love his accent as it reminds of my daughters husband, who is also from South Africa,the owner talked some zuid afrikaans with us, we could follow it as it is close to the dutch language.
If you go up that way ,make sure you stop at this cafe, its very worth while.
Several artists display their work there, right now Elspeth McLean has her art on the walls, i liked her work but the pieces are very expensive. check her out at :www.elspethmclean.com
