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.

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.

Perkins is tucked away in Nanaimo's cool downtown core and it is worth a visit! I have picked up coffee and baking at Perkins several times now, and must say that I love it. It is cosy and friendly, and the food and drinks are always great.

Best place for a good Americano - and good treats too. Personal favourite breakfast special on a savory scone. Great way to start the day.
