We were drawn in by the sign, real food and then we had the chance ot "taste" all four of the soups in shot glasses. Hard to pick just one and you don't have to as they have an option for a three soup sampler. We went for the chicken and curry vegetable soup with rice and a grilled seafood sandwich and a meatloaf sandwich. so yummy!!! We had to eat our lemon cake at dinner we were so full but it was excellant as well. Tucked in the Old Quarter, if you are looking for a funky place toeat- this is it!

The food here is so original, tasty and full of magic little touches, like the words "Real Food" spelling on top of my squash soup in sour cream. I love that I can eat here and know it's all fresh and geared towards being healthy! It's one of my fave places to eat! :)

This modern spin on the old fashioned luncheonette features simple fare done in spectacular fashion. Everything is prepared as if the chef's life depended on it, which may be the highest praise one can give. The Wild Salmon sandwich is perhaps the best I've ever tasted. With price points comparable to a Tim Hortons, it's amazing that people aren't lined up around the block..

A simple eatery in Nanaimo's old quarter with exceptional home cooked food. No prepackaged stuff here. The soups are awesome. Prices are very reasonable.

Great, fresh soups. It is nice to get to have a little taster of each soup before you decide. The salads are great as well. They are a bit expensive but large and very filling. The desserts are great as well.
