This bakery could be the entire package if the staff was treated properly. The owners are so rude which trickles to the staff who are appear to be scared of them. Every time I walk in, there is no appreciation for the business, no greeting whatsoever, they feel entitled that they own this bakery and that Nanaimo owes them, well,... More

For years now, each time we go we have a bad customer service experience. She says she doesn't care about the service, but it irks me. They are rude... More

Nice bakery offering lunches, baked goods, breads, rolls, authentic German cakes and heart whole grain bread. You can have light soups, salads, sandwiches and pastries. Some of the entrees are a little basic and after coming here for years, I still ask why don't they play some light music? Classical or some other light music to make the atmosphere a... More

We have been coming to this bakery for as long as I can remember. I love the delicious choices they offer on a daily basis. Everything is so fresh and affordable. I have a soft spot for the quiche

Bars were delicious, but some of our other choices weren't as good. Service was pleasant, variety of breads, cookies, and pastries very good.

This place has been in Nanaimo for years and there is a reason why. The food is incredible. Everything is fresh and very tasty. Lunch is always good whether eating in or getting it to go. Always enjoy this bakery.

These are harder to get then expected! Tried a few times until they were finally not sold out and even then, had to be fetched from the back! (popular with the locals I am told) Definitely try them if you have the chance, they are quite tasty and the chocolate layer to me was one of the best parts.

One orders at the counter with a daily menu. Soups, sandwich type meals, quiche. When ready your food is brought to your table. Inexpensive, fresh and tasty. Definitely not your burger and fries food. Fresh baking and coffee/tea also available. Limited seating. Parking is available.
