“Best Veggie Burger in Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

I have been here so many times in last one year and always happy with my Veggie burger. I have tried veggie burgers almost everywhere in town, I have no doubt in saying that they have the best veggie burger in town. Amazing atmosphere and very friendly staff.

“Great local food in local atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

This is a fantastic local venue which serves great home style meals for really reasonable prices. Service is excellent and prompt with a great variety of local beerson tap. Choice of meals could please the fussiest of eaters. The seafood chowder was brilliant as was the taco salad and bbq chicken wrap, all meals were of generous proportions with a variety of sides. All in all this was a great place a real chances to enjoy local hospitality and produce.

“Old fashioned Diner style”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

The Mychosen cafe is very much local: locals work here, locals eat here. The decor is funky farmer style. The "outdoor seating" is mainly an enclosed porch with lots of lovely little stone fireplaces. The food is old fashioned: pancakes and eggs and bacon, burgers and fries, liver and onions. Sometimes they branch into the adventurous: sweet and sour something. I have never felt the adventures were very successful: overly sweet , glutinous sweet and sour, Thai salad that's just a mishmash of ingredients. But the standards are really good. One of my faves is their Monterey chicken sandwich, or their BLT on marble rye. And their desserts are usually REALLY good- double chocolate cake is a sure winner. Oh, yeah, and for tourists or city types there are chickens and ducks and goats out back.

“My-Chosen Cafe - Unique”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

This café is a little off the beaten track, but if you're exploring Vancouver Island and find yourself on the south side, give My-Chosen Café a chance. We enjoyed an excellent meal with unusual ambience. The "zoo" in the back would be great for children. The address, "Happy Valley Road" says it all!

“A wonderful place to enjoy the food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

The recommendation by our B&B was right on the mark when they said this was a casual yet very good food stop. We could tell from entering the door that My-Chosen was a favorite with both locals and visitors. We had a brief wait and got to ask travel questions from a friendly local couple. The food tasted very fresh and the staff attentive, even though very busy. This place is definitely worth the stop if you are anywhere in the area! We tried their gluten free pizza on a take out order another night and it was great as well!
