Great portions, fast service, they have takeout. Fresh ingredients. Strongly recommend their omelettes. I love the Spanish omelet

A diner style restaurant, processed cheese kinda place. I know lots of people who love this place, but it’s not my kind of eating establishment. If you like chain restaurants like ABC, IHOP you’ll like it here. They do have a good loyal customer base.

Could not recommend this restaurant. The sausages were cooked in a deep fryer and not well and the lack of care and presentation for the food didn't help. My impression was that local produce was not used in the meals.

Only open for breakfast and lunch. Always busy. Super friendly staff. Servings are huge! By far the best Clubhouse Sandwich I've ever had. In fact that's all I order now. Home made soups are awesome, especially the Cream of Mushroom and the Creamy Chicken Noodle....More

Tania's Restaurant is a delightfully cozy breakfast and lunch only spot in Nanaimo and may just have taken my number one spot as my top restaurant in town. They close at 3:00 pm (2 pm Sunday), but offer breakfast till then. The parking lot is...More

Excellent home cooked diner style food and great service... just found our new favorite place! The dining room is wide open, so it's not a quiet, romantic atmosphere; very typical diner mood. The staff all seem friendly and outgoing and service was fast and with...More
