good food, good parking, good service but small.
Love love love. One of the best breakfasts I have ever had at an extremely reasonable price!! I really struggle finding vegetarian dishes that are flavorful without being spicy (I really am a huge baby about spice!) but the breakfast bruschetta here was incredible. Sundries tomatoes with poached eggs and feta on focaccia bread with potatoes, I'm drooling just thinking about it and it was 12$...are you kidding I am so sad that it's an hour drive for me or I would be there every weekend. The staff were also super super nice and I just love the concept and message. Eat here!!!! More...
Was i there
Fresh ingredients always. Never disappointed. I could eat their curried coconut vegetable soup every day. Love getting their freezer ready meals.
The food was amazing, great service. We will definitely be going back.
Amazing food. Reasonably priced. Great staff and a very comfy environment. First time there and will definitely be going back.
Tasty beef and turkey pot pies. Toasted sandwiches made with their own baked bread were also very good. Also enjoyed the homestyle beef cabbage roll soup. I would definitely eat there again. More...
Had an exceptional dried fig and blue cheese salad. Special was $10. Kids loved the pot pies and grilled cheese. Bread was fresh and moist. Will definitely come back with the kids again. More...
We were passing through Nanaimo and it had been already a long day waking up so early. Decided to stop by COCO Cafe for some breakfast. Found this place via TripAdvisor reviews, and all I can say is wow.The staff was friendly, fast, and took pride in everything they did. The breakfast bagel sandwich I got and the breakfast wrap my girlfriend got looked like they were made to be photographed. Perfectly cooked, perfectly assembled, and amazingly yummy.Thank you for a great first experience COCO Cafe! We can't wait to visit you again! More...
Coco Cafe does a superb job of meeting 2 needs. First it's an excellent cafe that serves delicious breakfasts, lunches and coffee break treats. Second, it provides valuable job opportunities for community members with special needs.Coco Cafe also offer an excellent catering service and sells ready-made meals to take home and heat up.I love to eat at Coco Cafe, have hired them to cater a dinner and often take meals home with me. I've told many friends about it who now enjoy Coco Cafe too More...
Fresh food, good sized portions, clean, friendly, out door options
Really good breakfast place with a lot of options to choose from. Great ambience and friendly staff
Excellent service. Good business model.
Delicious fresh great iced tea brewed in house
Love going to Coco's for breakfast! I got the BLT benny this time but I am also addicted to their bruschetta breakfast. Its a kid friendly place with a highchair and a little corner with some coloring stuff and a couple toys. The staff are very friendly and the beverages are good also. It's become our go to place even though it's 20 minutes away. More...
Great breakfast and great coffee ! Appears they have a training program for some folks who might otherwise not have the opportunity, that speaks a lot about who they are in the community ! Great work COCO !
Great food, although the service was quite slow when we went. I love and support the concept of this restaurant.
Great coffee, scone made inhouse was amazing
Tasty breakfast. Looks like they have a bunch of take and bake food options as well. Will have to come back again!
Great lunch amasing homemade soups. very friendly staff .
Delicious. Reasonably priced
Friendly cafe. I feel bad for them during mad Sunday rushes.
The breakfast sandwich is the best
Best peanut butter cookies around
Great cafe located in Cedar. I love their sausage breakfast bagels and it's a nice place to get a proper hot beverage. You really do get what you pay for, the food is always high quality.
Friendly staff, good food!
Lovely art on the walls, very friendly staff, lots of parking, food and drinks are delicious, seating is tight so might be difficult for people in wheelchairs but that is my only concern (and I'm sure the staff would be willing to help if someone had a wheelchair).

Great food. Great and friendly staff.
The food I've tried is delicious, great coffee & amazing staff!!
Had scones with coffee. Both excellent. Saw the breakfast bowls being delivered to other tables. They looked so good
Nice to see a community cafe supporting the people of the community.
This is my favourite coffee shop / breakfast/lunch place in the world. Great food, great staff, and very pleasant surroundings.
Thanks to Coco Cafe for your donation to TD Auto Finance's 2016 United Way Campaign. We are so thankful for your support and your awesome staff. We love your support for inclusion & opportunity for those with developmental disabilites in the community- what a fantastic story of how it all came about . Can't wait to drop in for lunch and meet the team :) More...
Fabulous food and service whenever I stop in. If you aren't really hungry, consider sharing a sandwich or wrap as they are extremely filling. Coco Cafe will divide the order on your plate so the soup or salad are shared evenly!!! More...
Great staff, welcoming environment, delicious food (turkey stuffing sandwich..mmmmmm) and the best London Fog drink I have ever had. It's clear the staff are proud to work there as it shows in quality of customer service and taste of products! Can't wait to try another item off the great menu! More...

We were very fortunate to of been able to request the services of CoCo Cafe to cater for our wedding day! We were very pleased to see our guests enjoying the full menu, and the feedback we got from them were nothing but praise. A big part in our decision to choosing CoCo Cafe was their involvement with the local community and we believe that is absolutely amazing.

Oh my! we stopped by the Coco today and had the thai chicken wrap with coconut curry soup Oh my! Absolutely delicious and worth the drive. Please consider a second location closer to us. It will be a huge success with your business model and great food. More...
My husband and I found this delightful place quite by accident on a Sunday drive around Cedar area. We each ordered the Tree Hugger sandwich with the soup which was a coconut vegetable and had coffee too.
We were immediately taken in by the cozy little interior and adored the small lending library. While we waited for our food, we noticed, and read about the brilliant idea that became the beginning of the COCO and we knew this would be a favourite place from then on.
And then the food came. Two magical beings with brilliant smiling faces carefully, but with glee, placed our plates before us. Asked us if they had done it right, and we realized they were making sure they had given us each our correct order. It didn't matter to us that we'd both ordered the same meal, but as my husband and I glanced at each other, we smiled too. We both assured them that it all was exactly as we'd ordered and thanked them for being so thoughtful.
As the two headed back to the kitchen my eyes followed them and I'm glad, because otherwise I would have missed the quiet but lovely exchange between them, as they high fived each other and one said to the other, we got that! They were so supportive of each other and it was a shared accomplishment.
I'm not sure what I enjoyed most, the two of them, or the food. And the food was delicious and unique and there was a party in my mouth. I love a good cup of coffee which is getting harder and harder to find in restaurants, but the COCO has great coffee too!
So, this delightful place has become a regular stop when we are in the Cedar area, because it has it ALL. We have also tried their frozen entrees, and the vegetarian enchiladas are so tasty.
If you haven't already done so, stop by. You might find yourself as satisfied as we are. More...
Awesome, delicious food!! We will be back, no doubt about it! 5 stars!
You haven’t eaten here yet? We’ll then, your next meal out must be at the CoCo Cafe, if it’s not the wonderful and energetic staff that you are sure to love it’s the food. This is a must go kind of establishment. The Manager Melanie always goes above and beyond! More...

A huge rave to COCO Cafe who catered my 60th birthday party in my home.
Let me just tell you, the 50+ people at the party raved about the food and the presentation!!! I could not be happier. A good time and good "taste" was had by all.
Thank you so much to the catering staff and congratulations on your amazing business. More...
Bev Brand Lewis
Your Cafe concept is like no other and needs recognition for your contribution, support and caring for those with developmental challenges. The staff are amazing and the food is outstanding. The coffee is great too. We frequent it as often as we can as it is a place with soul and giving on many levels. Keep up the good work! More...
We'd like to thank Coco Café and all their staff for catering our wedding on July 23, 2016. The response was terrific, with everyone enjoying every element of dinner and dessert.
We selected Coco Café after trying a few other caterers and couldn't be happier. Prior to setting up a menu we were able to sample their food and the staff helped us design a custom menu that represented us as a couple. The samples blew us away with how good the quality is. The price was very affordable as well.
Thank you again!
Mr and Mrs Lapierre More...
❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ Loved it! All the food looks amazing! Love the fact you offer KETO options as well as GF options. I will definitely be back and recommend to anyone looking for a great meal with happy and freindly service. More...

I have not eaten breakfast here and I have eaten lunch quite a few times. I have gone with a soup and sandwich combo each time and have been totally satisfied. You know that feeling you get when you’ve eaten some awesome food...this place delivers that feeling. Friendly happy staff. Counter order with staff delivery.
Gotta find a reason to go for brekky! More...
I'm absolutely smitten with this unique spot! Service is always friendly, food always fabulous and coffee consistently delicious. Not just your average coffee shop, the support of their special needs apprentice program is exactly what our world needs! Keep doing what you do so well and others will follow suit. More...
We had Coco cater our daughters wedding this weekend. I cannot say enough about the amazing food and service. Everyone , and I mean it when I say everyone raved about the food. We had bbq chicken, artisan sausage, salmon, all grilled to perfection. Green salad, Roasted Yam and spinach salad ( which everyone wants to find the recipe for) Mixed grilled veggies, roasted potatoes, creamy Mac and cheese, and focaccia bread. This was served to a group of 120 people in a timely and efficient manner. They also cleared the tables and package up the left overs all ready for our fridge. The staff were all such lovely people. I would highly recommend Coco to anyone needing at caterer. Thank you so much for all you did. Janie Mowatt More...

Always great food, great service and smiles. Just lovely!
Great breakfast with gluten free and vegan options
We've only made it in for breakfast while waiting for tire change at cedar tire - excellent breakfast
Nice ambiance, good food, coffee.
Cafe with a warm atmosphere and plenty of drink options. Appreciate that a vegan option is available. Hopefully more will come.
Nice little spot in Cedar...I highly recommend the breakfast bowl!
Love the baking and wraps. Nice place to meet for a good coffee and visit
We were thankful to find this great Cafe since downtown Nanaimo was dead at 8am on a Sunday morning and we wanted breakfast. We loved the West Coast Benny and coffee was very good for us coffee snobs. - Jeff & Brenda Ackerson, Bend, Oregon USA. More...
I've stopped in here for lunch a few times now and it's always the same: friendly staff, great food, and a good vibe. It's also geared towards a great cause. I highly recommend trying their chicken club and wonton soup. More...
Nice little out of the way cafe!
Beautiful bright and vibrant cafe! The music and the small touches are perfect. Plus, the soup was great!
Great spot for breakfast! Normally i dont eat eggs bennie when i go out because the sause tastes packaged. Not at coco's, it tastes great! Great baked goods and coffee if you dont want a big breakfast! Free WiFi as well! More...

Love this place... No words can express how much of a gem this place it. One must go and try the food to know how blessed we all are that places like coco cafe is the reason little towns are special.
Great little cafe. Sunny and bright atmosphere. Friendly and fast service. Great food and reasonably priced.
Excellent food, service and people!
Good coffee, good food and great staff.
Lovely restaurant, great food.
We are never disappointed with this lively cafe! Not only is the COCO Cafe an inclusive community building business, but the cappuccinos are also great and the food is excellent!
Fantastic food and they are a great community supporter.
Delicious food, friendly folks. Lots of gluten free options. And a social enterprise.
Very nice. Excellent coffee. Good people. Ko

This place is awesome. Great coffee, great food and great staff.
Delicious won ton soup on Fridays
LOVE LOVE LOVE IT HERE
Good coffee, good prices and really good food. And staff who are relaxed and professional at the same time. A real find, especially for veggie folk.
Coco Cafe in Cedar is an adorable little place to get breakfast. I took my sons for Sunday brunch. You get in line at the cash, place your order, pay for it and take your numbered sign to your table of choice. My youngest and I tried the Sunday only West Coast smoked salmon eggs benedict and my other son tried the pulled pork eggs benedict. Both were pretty awesome and I must say that their plating and presentation was spot on. That may have been the most impressive eggs benedict dishes I've ever seen. The eggs themselves were a study in perfection. I would also like to try their own warm granola cereal. The service was warm, friendly and efficient. More...
Always love coming here for breakfast!
Amazing food and staff! Friendly and helpful. Great Gluten free options
This community cafe has good food and awesome coffee. But, it is the ambiance of the place and spirit of the employees that make it special.
Amazing staff, even better food!!
Always great sandwiches for lunch
Pleasant atmosphere, nice and bright with cheerful original art.
Good businesses make you feel appreciated. Coco Café does so much for so many and it shines throughout their food, customer service & community involvement. Melanie the Manager is always so pleasant and can light up a room with her smile. I love it here and know you will too! More...
Great sandwiches with a very comfortable environment. Highly recommended!
Great community coffee shop, with local art on the walls and inspirational staff.

The food is great and the staff friendly.
Delicious and home cooked food. Their catering services are spectacular. Friendly staff.
Best mocha I've had in my life. Really cozy cafe, just wonderful!
Coco’s different in all the right ways!
Great service lots of choices for seating
Never disappoints! Soup, wraps or desserts! Mmmmmm!
Awesome cafe. Love the food, and staff. Not a big fan of the coffee though
Lovely vibe in this place. Food was delicious and fast. Poached eggs were perfect, sausage was a delight. It's off the beaten path a bit when you're driving up from Victoria, but I will stop here each morning I travel up island now. What a great restaurant!
Great food! Tasty, healthy, lots of options. Cozy atmosphere and super friendly staff!
Awesome food, friendly staff and great atmosphere!
It's a cyclist friendly cafe. If you are riding through Cedar, you definitely have to stop in
Good coffee and great treats.
Great place to meet and chat
Great food. Good prices. Community supporting business model.
Small but excellent lunch menu. Cozy place quite popular
This place really holds a special spot in our hearts.. The owners care about their community and it really shows. The food is always amazing and fresh, and you can taste it with local ingredients. They also give special needs people a place to work and it's truly a pleasure to see :) they also showcase local artists monthly and cater to many different events.. If you haven't tried this place you need to asap ! Thank you for all the years of amazing service More...
Good ambiance, felt very comfortable. Excellent food!
Nice little place ..food was good ...nice atmosphere definatly would recommend
Great food great art and great service
Always good homemade food and lots of gluten free options
Local cafe that contributes to community. Hires employees with special needs. Food is yummy but slightly on pricey side.
Cedar's best kept food secret.
Very good service and very nice place to visit. Would go there again when I'm in town.
Excellent service. Can't wait to try the premise meals on days that I don't have time to prepare a healthy dinner!
This place is amazing! The food is so good, good portion sizes, ingredients are fresh, and staff is extremely friendly. My 1.5 year old daughter and I are vegan and gluten free and there was some really great options for us and they were knowledgeable enough to answer my list of allergy questions. My husband is not vegan and loves the food there too. We also bought their frozen pot pies and enchiladas and they were to die for! This is a new family favorite place that we will be frequenting a lot :) More...
This place is awesome! The staff are super accommodating and the value for the food is great, we got a bunch of Nanaimo cake pops and they were super good.
The food is good. The coffee was good, got bad, and seems to be getting better again. Go figure.
Best breakfast in town. Wonderful staff.
Best breakfast place to visit. We always visit before heading out to the Sunday Farmer's Market, it's in Cedar but completely worth the drive. All the food is made with healthy ingredients and homemade. They also have frozen soups and meals which I definitely recommend taking some home. Vegetarian fare is delicious too with the garden bowl and hollandaise sauce. Yummy! More...
WOW! Surprise! Surprise!!! What looks like a rather ordinary little, be it clean, cozy cafe, has delicious culinary cuisine. Old cliche applies, don't judge a book by it's cover. Cafe is packed to the brim, you likely will have to wait to place your order, then wait again for the food to arrive at your table. Judging from what I observed, it has plenty of regular clientele that frequent this establishment.Once I tried my meal, I understood why. Plus... delightfully, Coco's has a wide variety of freshly packaged, refrigerated entree's to chose from for your next meal or to put in the freezer for a later date. Those with a sweet tooth can find some scrumptious offerings to satisfy their appetite. I tried the French Toast Cinnamon Bun for my brunch. It was a plate of sticky, yummy, gooey, goodness... overflowing with a rich creamy icing sauce. Added to that plate was three pieces of the best bacon I've ever had at any restuarant, made to perfection. Guard that bacon your life, otherwise your companions may be tempted to snatch it from you (even though they have their own). Beyond the outstanding food, Coco's has some pretty impressive community outreach programs that they are involved with. Altogether, this place should have a solid FIVE STAR rating. Coco's Cafe is located in Cedar Creek, BC. More...
Only been a couple times, good coffee and good treats
Best sandwiches in the naniamo area
Great breakfast, great coffee, reasonable prices.
Oh I love the veggie wrap and the coconut curry soup. Absolutely delicious!
Superb food at reasonable prices.
Everything I've tried from here is delicious! I love their mission in life too.
Amazing social initiative and outstanding food. We are having Coco cater our wedding and it has been a fully delightful experience throughout.
Amazing food, atmosphere and staff!
Delicious and very reasonable prices, vegan options, 10 dollars for a sand which and some amazing coconut curry
Came in for a late breakfast. Lattes were excellent, bennie's were fresh and perfectly poached! Excellent place and an amazing community organization. We'll defintely be back!
Delicious lunch, sweet treat and a take home meal served with a smile - couldn't ask for more and will definitely be back!
I love the Coco Cafe because of their awesome menu and because of staff.
Love this place, love the food, coffee...love the staff
The cinnamon buns you bake at home at Christmas were fabulous!!
Great food and drink, friendly staff and a cool community mission? Pretty hard to beat!
Nice small town feeling
A fantastic cafe with great tasting homemade food and a wonderful atmosphere. The soup is wonderful and highly recommended. My husband loves the cornbread from their market stall. The cafe is clean, bright and great value. The staff are friendly and deliver great customer service. A visit is a must! More...
The food is awesome, atmosphere is welcoming, and the staff are the best!
Great little cafe that we tend to visit often. Service and food both great. Try the cinnamon buns and the wraps!
