This restaurant was highly recommended but was, unfortunately, highly disappointing! - The was a guard removed from the electrical and compressor unit above the fridge right in the eating area - it was dusty, and questionably unsafe. - The table tops (all, not just ours) were very sticky. The server indicated "don't worry, it's just the varnish". Tabletops in this... More

I ordered the Old Soul, this is how it is described on the menu.. "The wonderful ancient grain Quinoa is paired up with fresh baked apples and pears, cinnamon, maple syrup, almond butter, and topped with fresh vanilla bean yogurt to make a filling and delightful breakfast porridge." I imagined a beautiful dish with a generous helping of poached apples... More

Little place downtown Nanaimo. Hours are limited to morning/afternoons. They do catering so for a lunch at the office, it's great.

This is one of our favourite breakfast spots in Nanaimo. The service is great, and the food is always fresh. The frittata is my husband's favourite, and mine is the roasted tomato egg scramble. Service with their delicious homemade jam and homemade ketchup for the hash browns. Yum!

We were travelling from Tofino to Victoria this morning and thought Nanaimo was a good place to stop to have breakfast, toilet break and stretch our legs. Not know where we were going but we managed to find a public car park nearby, we saw 2 Cafes. It was quite packed. That is a good indication. We ordered two eggs... More

Just a few blocks down from my hotel I found this quaint little eatery. Had a good quality breakfast, decent service and the price was on point. I like the open kitchen concept and style. Decent all round place. I would return.

Went for lunch with a friend - we both had a sandwich and salad. I had the Cheating Heart which was a clubhouse, it was toasted but not hot...it was very good but the name made me think it was going to be warm inside. My friend had the Cheating Heart which was shredded beef and cheese that was grilled... More

Stopped in here for breakfast to kill some time before catching the ferry to Gabriola.The food was delicious. I.do not like ketchup but the homemade ketchup that came with the Benny was to die for. The lunch menu looked equally good and we will definitely be going back. Highly recommended.

Thank Deranne
