My girlfriend and I ate here for lunch and it's safe to say this restaurant is in our all-time bottom 3. I had the risotto (which should not be called a risotto at all). It lacked moisture and definitely lacked the creamy mouth feel risottos are known for. My girlfriend had the ravioli that was mostly dough and very undercooked.... More

Have visited for both lunch and breakfast more than a few times and it never disappoints. The food is simply the best, chef-inspired quality. The service is always friendly. A real favourite in old town Nanaimo!

I have had the pleasure of eating here on many occasions and have never been disappointed. The soups are interesting and inspired. The lunch menu has a variety of choices and each is artistically displayed as well as being tasty. I highly recommend this restaurant.

We visited 2 Chefs Affair for the second time this weekend. We were actually heading to 'Gabriel's', another of our faves but the was parking right in front of '2 Chefs' so there you go! Our first trip was for lunch: excellent, with both of us ordering the 'today's special' eggs Benedict. Really nice. I love how they use a... More

Had the quinoa oatmeal and juice. Was kinda pricey for those two items. You can see the love that goes into the food and the place was busy. I would probably return just because my preference is for freshly made dining.

Highly recommend this little cafe for a delicious breakfast. Fresh, quality ingredients are just the start, add friendly, prompt service with in house ketchup and jam and your meal is complete. Will definitely return.

For a nice breakfast a short walk from our downtown hotel, this was perfect. My eggs benedict were perfectly done and accompanied by a small selection of nicely done veggies and potatoes (unlike so many breakfast spots that overload the hashbrowns to compensate for a deficient main). My partner's toast came with a delightful house-made jam. Service was professional and... More

I was there for breakfast. It was delicious and great value. I had their version of Eggs Benny. Coffee was great tasting, home made Jam, Hollandaise, almond butter. A nice variety of home fries (sweet and regular potatoes) and Great Service. The 2Chefs were friendly and the wait staff were fun, friendly and very attentive. All-in-all, probably the best, healthiest... More
