Gingerbread Cookies...A must have!

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... read more

We stopped in to the shop on Commercial St . Lovely atmosphere and GREAT coffee w/a cranberry & white chocolate cookie. Even better than the Serious Coffee shops we had been patronizing. Deep deep flavors. Perfect.

As well as good coffee, Perkins serves delicious baked goods - my personal favourite is the honey bran muffin - salads and sandwiches. A good place to meet a friend for coffee or a light lunch

I work downtown and I visit Perkin's usually twice a day. The coffee is ALWAYS hot and fresh. The service is very good, the front end staff know me by name and know what I like to have (I appreciate these things) Every now and again I get to Perkin's on the weekend for breakfast with my husband. He LOVES... More

My husband & I drop by to warm up after a crisp walk around Nanaimo Harbour in the winter. It is a cozy port to have a hot beverage. My husband enjoys their coffee. I always have a hot chocolate or a steamed milk as I don't drink coffee or tea. I have not tried any of their pastries or... More

I drink coffee in a lot of places with espresso machines, and professional baristas. Whenever I go back to Perkins, I think "yes, it really is this good!" I can't explain any better than that. You just have to try it for your self.

I stopped in here for a coffee while we strolled downtown. The counter staff was so nice and the pastry and other food selection was incredible. I wish we had more time there so we could have tried more things!

We just wanted a soup and sandwich lunch while in downtown Nanaimo. We looked at a few restaurant menus but they just didn't appeal to us on that day. We aw this little place and it was a very pleasant surprise. The slam chowder was made on site and the 1/2 sandwich was a meal. I had a ham sandwich... More

Went there for coffee, it was great, the ambiance was very nice, and all in all, a good place to stop for a coffee and a snack.

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.
