It's the Bee's Knees!!!!!
You have to try this cafe if you are looking for something healthy, funky and fun for eat in or take out. The food is delicious and the prices are reasonable. At least try it for the name alone.
Located at: 208 Wallace Street it is just up the hill from Mrs. Richie's on the old island highway. The prices are reasonable and healthy for the most part. It is a great find for me after the Thirsty Camel closed down.
Here's what we got for lunch to go. From left to right is a portabello mushroom sandwich with pesto and goat cheese and a little coleslaw. The soup is called Ash soup and it is a spicy hearty soup with lentils and Persian noodles. On the right is the Buddha bowl which is a great value for $10.00. It's totally vegan with brown rice and lentils, spinach, smoked tofu, cashews, grated carrot and grated beet. The dressing is very flavorful as well. My husband said the sandwich was good but with cheese it is not vegan so I didn't try it. I loved the soup. A big bowl would be great on a cold day.
If you are in Nanaimo around lunch time, make a point of trying this place.
