We have been numerous times over the past few years and it has always been an excellent stop. Not crowded or noisy and well lit with big front window. A very pleasant spot to share a special coffee or light snack with a friend or by youerself and watch the happenings on the streets.

I didn't have anything here, but I'll definitely be back. Loved the atmosphere and was just meeting up for a business networking appointment here. Cute area and cute relaxing place to sit for a break!

Everything in this quaint little coffee place is delicious, including the coffee! They have the best authentic Nanaimo bars you'll ever have. If you're in Nanaimo, you MUST go here!

Really great freshly made sandwiches and soup. and the pastries for dessert are very yummy. By the way the coffee is also wonderful. It is a typical coffee house look and right in the shopping area.

This was the first place we came across after parking. Toasted cheese scones were delicious. Americanos were also good. The place is not much to look at from the outside but it's the food that counts and they seem to have got that right. Great service too.

We heard about the Nanaimo Bar and it sounded great and the picture on the front of the brochure looked delicious, so I carefully planned to have coffee and dessert after our museum visit. I wanted one of the traditional Bars – as there are so many choices in town with it served different ways. So I chose the Perkins... More

This place is always busy for good reason. They have great sandwiches and the best lemon loaf I have had anywhere.
