Brunch is a beautiful thing. It’a a laid-back feast combining the very best of two meals. Brunch bends all the culinary rules. You can enjoy the artery clogging goodness of breakfast alongside other unconventional early morning fare like meat roasts, seafood and desserts…simultaneously. Where it’s perfectly acceptable to indulge in a few cocktails with your meal and the need to get up early is eliminated entirely. Add a few hungry guests and you have the perfect meal. What’s not to love?
Here at the Flirty Foodie we tend to avoid the two Fs: fast food joints and franchises. In a city chock full of chain restaurants, how does one sort the good from the run-of-the-mill? Downtown Nanaimo contains a treasure trove of culinary delights, many of which can be found along a historic stretch of road on Commercial Street. Hidden in plain sight, you only have to stop and look to discover there is great eating here! We take you through some of our favourite stops along the strip. The best part about our list is that all of our picks are under $10!
