“Tasty Wait”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

I've always found the Atlas cafe food to be delicious, well presented and competitively priced. I visit about once a month. However, if you are in a hurry don't go…it takes a long time for the meal to arrive. It's probably the popularity! All the dishes I've had are fabulous.

“Consistently good”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Been dozens of times over the years, the only complaint is it is difficult to get a table at times, but it is worth the wait

“Excellent lunch, but get there early!”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

The Atlas Cafe has an excellent lunch menu and is one of my favourite places to meet friends in Courtenay. Prices are reasonable, there are several vegetarian options, the food is tasty and interesting and the portions generous but not excessive. Their yam and eggplant quesadilla is one of my favourites! The staff are pleasant and efficient, even when it's very busy. They're quite popular for lunch, so I've found it's best to get there a bit early, as there has been the odd occasion I had to wait for a table.
