A lovely little cafe - albeit a little warm inside this day! Lovely staff and the crab BLT was just incredible! Cobb salad was plentiful and delicious. A great place for lunch.

Awesome food. Had the pulled pork... So good! Ordered as takeout and only waited 10 minutes. Wish it was open later, for dinner too!

I went with my 11 yr old and we had the waffles and French toast. The staff were super friendly and we enjoyed sitting outside at 7.30am.

I had heard good things about 2 Chefs Affair and decided to go there to meet some out of town friends for breakfast. The service from both our server and another staff member was excellent - courteous, friendly and attentive! Our breakfasts however, were much less stellar.

Great place to start off your day! Good breakfast menu with dishes prepared with fresh ingredients, nice and friendly staff and good service. What else can you ask for! Go and visit them when in Nanaimo :-)

Nice outdoor seating. Had a crab BLT. Bun was very good. Crab was tender and flavorful. Fresh side salad with a great dressing. Great place.
