Great local folk making honest hard-working meals for great local folk. I've eaten here for lunch a few times with family and separately with friends and, lastly in December, an event with food provided by Two Chefs that was served buffet style. The roast beef and horseradish was the stuff of dreams. .

This husband and wife team created a cozy ambiance where they do their slogan 'for the love of food' honor. Their homemade Eggs Benedict is actually lower priced than many other restaurants while you get the feeling that you are actually sampling a creation that the hens who lay the eggs can be proud of. Hollandaise sauce, hashbrowns and ketchup... More

We went there for breakfast and the food was fresh. Hollandaise is made from scratch and very tasty. Ketchup was homemade and had a nice delicate flavour. We also bought a tourtière to have for supper that night and it was authentic and delicious. Would definitely go back again.

This little lunch spot has amazing homemade food. Great entrees, sandwiches and soups. They are also open for breakfast. My favorite is their crab sandwich. Stacks of fresh crab with bacon, served with either home made soup or a mixed salad. Their crab cakes are also fantastic, Location is handy, in the downtown section of Nanaimo.

My hubby ordered the daily special, Brownstone Bennie and I ordered the fab french toast. Presentation was extremely artistic and the flavors were a heavenly jive in our mouths. Fresh and exciting food.... The... More

I had a salad with a VERY suggestive name - Menage a Trois! But this salad is all about the fish. There was fresh greens with a fish cake, prawns and candied salmon and it was excellent. 2 Chefs specializes in a limited menu that is very well done with fresh, local ingredients. They're also not open in the evenings... More
