We stayed at the attached Best Western hotel and due to the generous discount offered decided to have breakfast at Smitty's. This is your basic breakfast place serving a pretty much standard Western breakfast menu. Service was friendly and the food was good.

Great food, great service and great value, what more could you ask for. We ordered french toast, waffles, eggs and bacon. It was all good. Will eat there again if in town.

This was our last meal on Vancouver Island, after 10 days of holiday in Nanaimo and just before our afternoon flight back to AB. We were in the mood for pancakes so stopped in at Smitty's as we enjoy the Alberta location near our home....More
