“Come back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2014

I miss this place! It closed what feels like almost a year ago, word was they would close for an "extended and much needed holiday" and then re-open at a different location in the future, but I'm starting to worry that it might not come back! Nanaimo misses your amazing burgers and sandwiches, come back to us!

“Fresh and local food that pleased a fussy eater”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

Finding a meal that our 9-year old son will eat is a challenge. The pulled pork grilled cheese sandwich at the Danforth Deli & Grill hit the spot. Even the crusts from the homemade bread were eaten. I went for the Godzilla burger which had a homemade patty loaded with avocado, tomato, bacon, smoked cheese and some wickedly spicy secret sauce. If you want a stylish place to eat then you might be disappointed by this deli. This one negative is totally over-shadowed by the fresh local food and the engaging owner. We will definitely return during our next trip to Nanaimo.

“Good place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

Food is great, but a little on the pricey side..We love the omelettes especially. Great selection of cheeses for special occasions. As we walk downtown frequently, its great to have a cozy little place like this to go to.

“Simple LocaL Ingredients”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

I love the omelettes and burgers. Well the soups are pretty awesome too> The soups are flavour full and not overloaded with salt. I love the use of the local ingredients. The cheeses used are top notch and really put the food over the top.

“always amazing, always fresh, always going back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

Danforth is quite possibly my favourite place to eat in all of Nanaimo! I'm constantly going back to this friendly little deli in the downtown district for it's amazing and almost gourmet burgers, the amazzzzzing grilled cheese, and smiling faces! You're greeted with a smile and a hello and the prices are always reasonable. Everyday they have a new special and its always delicious and comes with a side for $12 tops! For a feeling of being home that hits you as soon as you go in and outstanding food options, I highly recommend you wander into this great restaurant!

Ps: GO THERE!
