Wish I could remember the name of the muffin -- Sunshine, maybe? It was "healthy" with carrot and the like, but TASTY! Good coffee too, in a convenient location on Commercial Street.

Fresh food - sandwiches and deserts which are ready to go. The coffee is hot and the staff are friendly and helpful. Good value for the money and in a great downtown location.

We happened upon Perkins because we were staying at the Best Western and missed the breakfast service. A quick walk away was Perkins and it was a nice treat. The coffee was great and they had a nice selection of muffins, scones, and other baked goods. The girls working there were friendly & helpful.

My family and I stayed in Nanaimo for ~3 days and this became my parents' "go to" coffee place in the morning.

This is the best place in Nanaimo to go for speciality coffees, teas, chocolate, etc. Also has amazing bakery goods - their Nanaimo bars are an experience nothing like the stuff you can buy in grocery stores. They are big, chunky, and flavorful. Great soups and sandwiches, too. The only knock is that it closes at 4 or 5 pm... More

I stumbled upon Perkins Coffee Company while walking around downtown Nanaimo in search of a coffee and breakfast. I found a delicious breakfast sandwich and a strong latte served with friendly service. The place seemed to have lots of locals inside, which is always a good sign to me.
