We absolutely agreed this was a place with great food, first impression was awesome.
You order at a counter, pay, then sit down with a number. Service was friendly and efficient. The food is local, and portions are ok. There is a small beer. list, but coffee is great. I'll look up this place again when I visit Nanaimo. Beware there is a lunch rush!!
Prices are average.

Three of us for lunch-- everyone happy. Famous for Rice Bowls. Many veggie options, gf as well. I went non-veg and non-gf with a burger that was one of the best I have ever had (age 62). Nice spot, pleasant, slightly funky decor, clean and bright. Highly recommended.

California style cafe now - order at the counter and your choices are brought to your table. I had a lovely avocado toast with egg and freshly squeezed grapefruit juice. Simple food properly prepared and delicious.

This is a different dining experience. It is almost like bar service, you select from a menu and then place your order at a counter and it is delivered to your table. The food is very good.

Excellent healthy food choices with helpful staff. I used to support this restaurant when it was a small hole in the wall on Commercial Street and I enjoyed it then. Great vibe and great food in the heart of Nanaimo!
