Poncho’s Coffee House, the former House of Beans, serves fine Drumroaster beans, the best of locally baked goods, great in-house made sandwiches and soon to serve Island crafted beer, wine and tapas.  Poncho’s is a community hub for Langford and is conveniently located next to the Goudy Library. We seek to serve the finest of locally produced goods in a friendly social environment. We serve organic products as much as we can.  Our inspiration is Poncho, who is the most interesting dog in the world, or so he is often told.

Bill, Annabella and Poncho left Calgary and the practice of law in 2012.  Vowing never to endure another prairie winter, they set forth. The cafes of Spain, Germany, Italy, and France fell under the spell of Poncho as we all followed his quest to taste the best espresso on the planet.  Upon reaching the streets of Rome and setting  himself down at the Sant’Eustacchio il Caffe, Poncho attained his goal;  Poncho was lauded and declared “the Most Interesting Dog in the World” by all Rome — a title he holds to this day.

Poncho now sought a place to practice the art of making people happy and after taking New York, Mexico City and Guatemala by storm he fell under the spell of Vancouver Island. He purchased a coffee shop, named it after himself and was happy.
