Lunch on a cool wet Sunday in Nanaimo. Sunday brunch in a nice cozy space. Place was hopping and had a good feeling! Food and service both excellent and as a bakery all the bread products used were great.

A busy, friendly eatery right on the main street with windows on both side to watch the world go by. Interesting selection of lunch or breakfast choices, something for everyone of all ages.
