charming little spot for some coffee or tea

yummy drinks and scones- this is a lovely place to catch up with a friend and chat over some coffee and tea. On occasion parking can be challenging therefore I usually park at the parade and walk over.

Pastries (large muffins) and coffee fare. Eat in or to go items. Street parking can be hard to find. Coffee is fresh. Muffin and coffee is about $5.

This cool little coffee shop in downtown Nanaimo is consistently excellent. They have all kinds of freshly made soups, sandwiches, muffins, cookies - pretty much all the goodies you could ever wish for. Prices are good. Service is excellent from a happy and efficient staff. My favourite snack is a Golden Harvest muffin - yum! There is always a line-up,... More

I have never once given a 1 of 5 rating. I am so disappointed with Perkin's decision. I have recently learned that Perkin's has let go some of it's senior staff. Perkin's had some of the greatest staff who knew what I wanted and were genuinely interested on how I was doing on any given day. They've lost a 5... More

Great place for breakfast, coffee and lunch. The food is fresh and the Nanaimo Bars and baked items are fantastic.

We are big fans of Perkins and have enjoyed their coffee periodically over the years. We purchased an Island Daily Deal ($10 for $20 of products), and unintentionally let it expire. I didn't realize this until I was standing in line to purchase a pound of their coffee beans and they told me they were no longer honouring the IDD... More

A former favourite ... since the restaurant changed ownership earlier this year, quality of food and service has gone south. Went in today and ordered their house salad ... "none left" we were told ... "out of chick peas". Settled for a sandwich, which used to be on delicious fresh baked bread piled with meat and cheese. Today's version was... More

My friend and I stopped in briefly to check out the gingerbread cookies as I've heard plenty of good things regarding them. I brought one home and had it set on the counter and my dad decided to help himself to it. All I heard from the next room was "WHERE ARE THESE FROM, THEY'RE DELICIOUS!" So despite me being... More
