“Best breakfast I have EVER had! Absolute MUST GO HERE!!!”
Reviewed May 24, 2014

Not the prettiest restaurant from the outside, but the looks are decieving. Everything they cook is from scratch and is worth the price. My hubby ordered their breakfast sandwich and I ordered the eggs benedict. Everything was beyond expectation and did not make us feel sluggish like other restaurants do. They even have this incredible homemade ketchup that is just crazy good (and I dont like ketchup). If you go here for food you definitely will NOT be disappointed!

“Amazing Breakfast Spot”
Reviewed May 21, 2014

Quaint cafe with amazing food. It's the kind of cozy place where you are rubbing elbows with the people beside you when the place is full. The food is everything you expect for a delicious breakfast - fresh, delicious, smaller portions. My personal favorite is the French Toast, with the Old Soul quinoa a close second. The staff are friendly and the service is quick. Parking is best found in the public lot beside the Royal Bank. I am definitely a repeat customer that will continue returning.

“Best breakfast I've had in a long time”
Reviewed April 25, 2014

Lovely small cafe with fresh, local foods. Excellent selection of teas and coffees. Quinoa porridge (named 'Old Soul') was satisfying and delicious. Good fritatta with salmon and ham.

“Delicious!”

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.

“There's a reason it's almost always full”
Reviewed March 29, 2014 via mobile

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 of chain restaurant food. You get to watch the chefs prepare food that is fresh, clean, and original. We'll be back!
