Really Good!

Went here for breakfast and was initially a bit put off, it was dark inside and we were seated next to the toilets when there was an open table at the front, I asked if we could sit there and was told it was reserved, it stayed empty almost our entire stay. Well the amazing food made up for it.... read more

A most popular non- licenced rest stop on the town's centre strip where the service and light snack food is very well prepared and tasty.

Went here with my daughter for brunch and we greatly enjoyed our breakfast, especially the perfectly poached eggs. The homemade jam and ketchup was also a nice bonus.

The daily special is pretty much always divine...I eat here so often all the staff know me by name. Never have I been disappointed by my menu choices

Very accommodating of gluten free options. Excellent French Toast. The Eggs Benedict sauce was cold and tasted spoiled. Seating tight but expected at location.

This little restaurant in the heart of downtown Nanaimo is the best place to get a good breakfast. The food is amazing, the staff are wonderful and the owners are very kind people. What more could you ask for?

I get up early and walk around, this place opened earliest and smelled great. Went back for breakfast with my wife. Really good. Waitress warned me that a lot of places do not have the conversion for American to Canadian so they use dollar for dollar. Recommeded using credit card to get the conversion. The bakery right accross the street... More

I think I ordered wrong. What I had was outstanding, but then I was full and couldn't eat anymore. I wanted more! The eggs Bene was lovely, my multicolored potatoes delicious. I might skip dinner so I can come for more breakfast.

An excellent small restaurant that extends out on to the pavement. We visited for our breakfast a couple of times and a good range was on offer - all of it good. Staff friendly and helpful, not least when they managed to feed us quickly one morning when we were on the run for a ferry.
