Mediterranean menu. Many vegetarian choices. Always tasty. Pot of lentil soup is always on the stove. Service is friendly. Downtown Nanaimo location. Parking on the street nearby is usually available.

A dining experience which stimulates all your senses. A tantalizing meal, served in a warm space, filled with midle eastern music. What a wonderful escape.

If you are in Nanaimo, you have to have lunch here. It is a simple colorful cafe, excellent service, and great food. The menu caters to vegans, vegetarians and meat eaters. The food is plentiful and full of flavour. It is a fun place.
