Serious Coffee Nanaimo

Serious CoffeeThe nicest coffee shop near the Nanaimo Regional General Hospital has to be Serious Coffee in the Beaufort Centre, 18 - 1588 Boundary Cres. (tel. 250-716-8959). Aside from the usual tables and chairs (and outdoor seating in summer), a couple of comfortable armchairs and a big sofa face the fireplace in a cozy corner. In December there's a Christmas tree and bright red stockings hanging from the chimney. The egg nog mocha and pumpkin pie chai are seasonal treats.

Along with your mochas and lattes you can order grilled paninis, soup and salad, bagels, sausage rolls, and cookies. The selection of cakes and juices in the cooler is good, and the breakfast quesadillas are a bargain. A loyalty card accepted at all of this island-owned franchise's Nanaimo locations will give you your 11th cup of drip coffee for free.

The Boundary Crescent Serious Coffee location is a wireless internet hotspot and you're welcome to occupy a table for as long as you like. The free newspapers make pleasant reading in front of the fireplace. You'll enjoy the local atmosphere and the staff is consistently friendly. It's open weekdays from 6:30 am to 7 pm, Saturdays and Sundays 8 am to 6 pm. Want great coffee? Get Serious!!
