Real Food is great and fast. All four soups on offer were tasted and passed with flying colours, but Creamy Dreamy Tomato won. Nanaimo Cake, based on the famous Nanaimo Bar is absolute heaven. Friendly staff, delicious coffee.

not cheap eats by any means but well prepared and "healthy" fare. I had a Greek wrap which was as it should be, and a slice of tiramisu cake which was huge and delicious

Fresh ingredients and a bright location near cutesy shops. The desserts in the deli case are mouth watering to view and I couldn't resist the layered coconut lime cake. So good!

As Italian, I appreciated so much this place. The quality of the foods was very high and the ingredients very fresh. The owner was very kind and she gave to us a taste of all the soups.

The food is fantastic. We have been customers of Real Food for many years and it's been a favourite all along. Their Stews, Soups, Salads, sandwiches all very good, the deserts are absolutely to die for. We highly recommend Real Food, it's consistently good, lots...More

lunch at real food was soup and sandwich. Delicious cream of celery (!) soup with a kick. BBQ chicken sandwich also had a kick and was good. Chicken stew also very good. No atmosphere but solid

I have had the pleasure of enjoying several lunches over the past few months. Home made soups are available everyday with a wide variety of choices. The tossed greens are to die for - not sure what is in the dressing but it is fabulous.
