Have only been to this place for breakfast. They do breakfast very well. The food is delicious, the waitstaff are fast and courteous, and prices are very reasonable.

Another success for TripAdvisor reviews! We wanted something other than the usual chain restaurant breakfast. The 2 Chef Affair did not disappoint. Since our recent first visit, we've been back two more times. With no pretensions, this is a simple restaurant. However, the food and the friendly staff rise above the limitations of the space. The food is the antithesis... More

I found this place on tripadvisor and decided to check it out. We went for brunch. Probably the only downside is trying to get a parking spot nearby. Horrific in that way. Had to circle the block several times until something came up. I had the eggs benedict. The hashbrowns were excellent. Everything is made with healthy real food. It... More

I was delightfully surprised after attending a specialty event at 2 Chefsaffair, that their menu held most, if not all, of my breakfast favourites. However due to the time of day I decided to try the French Onion Tart, which I proceeded to savour its delectableness for about 20 minutes. Presentation and flavour. 5 out of 5. Perfect portion size... More

We recently stopped by for lunch and were so glad we did. We lucked out as there were a number of tables available when we arrived, but within 10 minutes, there was a line up out the door. I can see why it's popular as the food was fabulous. I had the risotto balls which came with an excellent home... More

We were in Nanaimo for a little island getaway. Having lived in Vancouver for 5 years, we have inadvertently become a bit food-snob-ish. We stumbled upon 2 Chefs Affair when hunting for breakfast in the morning. It looked really cute, trendy, and yet comfy. The inviting smell of freshly baked deliciousness was wafting out the door, so we had to... More

We went here for brunch. We ordered the eggs benny which was good... but very small portions, my 1/2 hash brown cake was so crispy I left it. The latte was very good. If we go back it would just be for lattes.

We went here on a Saturday afternoon at 1:00pm, based on the good reviews on trip advisor; we weren't disappointed. We were fortunate to get a table, as most tables were reserved. Everyone at the table had the eggs Benedict which was very tasty. We had a peak at some of the plates on other tables and everything looked very... More

At 2 chefs it's all about quality versus quantity. Definitely not your typical huge plate of gruel you are served at some of the more popular weekend brunch places. Everything is store made and tastes phenomenal. Highly highly recommend if you haven't tried yet

Delicate flavours, nice presentation. Great French toast. Giant tea latte and very pleasant service. Will have to try lunch here too just to see if it is as good as breakfast. Yum.
