Seahorse Café & Gallery Telegraph Cove, BC

Lana & Freya

The history of the Seahorse Café & Gallery starts with the Java Jockey. We owned and operated this coffee concession 2003 - 2004 in the Victoria area. When we first stumbled upon the opportunity to open a business in Telegraph Cove, the plan was to bring the Java Jockey. The Java Jockey had a past as a horse-rescue trailer. The new café was to be by the Sea. The name, Seahorse Café, was born.

The Java Jockey did not make it to Telegraph Cove but the idea for the name did. We purchased an existing building (bellow left) and restored it. The Seahorse Café & Gallery opened in June 2004!
