After Church this morning, my husband says we are going for breakfast at this new restaurant (for us) called 2 Chefs Affair. When we parked the car and went in, I was surprised….it holds a counter with seats at the street window and about 12 tables in the restaurant. They have 4 people in the open kitchen, and it was...

We came across 2 Chefs Affair the night before and checked out their breakfast menu in the window. When we returned the following morning the place was packed but we were fortunate to get the last table. All the food is freshly prepared. Good atmosphere and service. Highly recommend.

Had the daily special which was salmon and cream cheese quiche. The crust was somewhat burnt though the rest tasted fine. Salad dressing was a garlic vinaigrette. Somewhat bland Something about the tables and benches made them feel sticky. Also the black pillows that they had on the bench show and all kinds of stain marks.

Excellent food and friendly staff in this busy 'Affair'. The fridge of Take-away goodies is so convenient and the food tastes like homemade comforts. The Polenta cake, made to order, is a gluten-free delight!

My wife and I are both Senior Citizens and we only like light meals especially for lunch. We've been to this restaurant twice already for their lovely, tasty and very inexpensive big bowl of soup and bread for just $5.00! The bowl of soup is just the perfect size for both of us! I kid you not, it's really delicious,... More

We used to go to two chefs atleast once a week for their original breakfast items. The service has always been awful, but the food made up for it. After the owners took on additional restaurants, even expectations for our breakfast took a dive, as they were constantly out of simple items like bread. Today we decided to give them... More

After breakfast here a week or two ago, we revisted for lunch last Friday. Initially I was inclined to say that one doesn't come for the ambience (the room is long, narrow, and a tad crowded) but, on reconsideration, one might; seated against the wall, the view of the chefs working on the dishes can be quite entertaining. The food... More
