2 Chefs Affair is a small little cafe style restaurant in downtown Nanaimo. Don't let the size fool you, The food was nicely prepared, fresh, and very tasty. The eggs Benny were exceptionally good,! A definite stop for breakfast or lunch!

The food here is great! I believe the Atwo Chefs have just bought the Modern a Cafe here in downtown Nabaimo. This is very exciting. Love the Modern Cafe and love the Two Chefs.

Hubby and I looked all around for a breakfast spot, and stumbled upon 2 Chefs. We ate here two days in a row - once inside and the next day on their new parklet. Service was fine... (although waitstaff should always write your order down so you don't have to correct them). I had eggs and bacon with toast, and... More

Went after hearing they had good french toast. Was impressed with the kind, accommodating staff. My Wife, 2 kids, and myself ordered all different things from menu, and all were spectacular! The price was beyond fair and felt i should be paying more for this great food. Service was slower, perhaps on "Island Time", overall a great eat. We will... More

This is a great spot for brunch or lunch, but it was getting a bit hard to get a table some days... until they collaborated with the city to build a little parklet, half for the restaurant's use, half for the public. My 3 year old loves it. Thanks for your community-minded innovation. I recommend the eggs benny. Best in... More

The food was better than expected - we will go back on our next visit to Nanaimo. The service we fine - not sure if our waiter was one of the Chefs but he seemed to care. Better than a Nanaimo bar......

In my opinion, 2 Chefs makes the BEST breakfast in town. Absolutely delicious each & every time. Always great service with a smile, full cup of coffee and usually pretty quick as well. Whenever we can, we go for Egg's Benny at 2 Chefs Afair

This cozy space is bright & busy (for good reasons!)...excellent variety of flavours & options, as well as local, organic ingredients...well worth the high-ish prices!!
