Best Eggs Benedict ever...local Tannadice Ham, perfectly poached eggs with classic sauce [not from a package]. ...another great meal from this long time restaurant.

“Vegetarian Friendly! :)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

Atlas Café is one of my all time favorite restaurants in Courtenay. They have a variety of different foods on the menu to satisfy everyone. Being a Vegetarian it's not always that easy to go to a restaurant and order something without asking them to alter your meal in someway. Atlas Café has many different Vegetarian friendly options along with great service and friendly staff!

“MENU EXTRAORDINAIRE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2014

Recently, we were in Courtenay, B.C., and needed a quick lunch. After "googling" restaurants I chose Atlas Cafe, which was easy to find. And WHAT A FIND it was!!! Don't let the title fool you - this is much more than a cafe. It is a full sized restaurant and lounge with modern clean decor and a menu that can't be beat. I was truly shocked at how many items there were....so many that we are going to have to go back several times to try everything we thought looked yummy. :-) My husband ordered the Middle Eastern Roll, while I chose the Chicken Satay Roll. Each came with a salad; mine was a Caesar, my husband's was a mixed greens. We then shared half our meal with each other so that we could taste both dishes. There was a LOT of food for the money, and it was a taste explosion from the first mouthful. Really delicious!

The place was busy for middle of the week, but we did not have to wait to be seated, and the service was prompt. The restaurant was spotless, as was the restroom. We may have had to wait a tad long for the food to come out, but once tasting it, I can honestly say it was well worth the extra few minutes' wait. We will definitely be returning to Atlas Cafe when we are in the Courtenay area (about every other week). My mouth is watering just thinking of our next meal there!

The food was amazing. Not your run of the mill cookie cutter menu and the service was fantastic, our food came quickly and sharing was no problem.
