All the breads and Danish style pastries are irresistible, but the scones are hard to resist too! I buy then at the Bowen farmer's market. Excellent coffee.

Bakery is cute & sweet , products are great , have been a fan for years . Notice the cleanliness slipping a bit and the outside looking run down . Would be nice to see it bounce back to when it first opened ! Fresh & pretty outside and in.

Pastries and breads are fantastic. Owner(s) operated with fresh bread and pastries every day except Sunday and Monday. Small indoor seating area with summer patio. Excellent coffee and tea.

We have been getting our bread at Bodhi's for several years and wouldn't go anywhere else. Our favorites are the Moroccan spice, the apple cider rye and the polenta ciabatta although the sourdoughs are good too. They have made several cakes for us and they were delicious and very attractive. If you want a quick and inexpensive lunch, pick up... More

Better to buy real fresh baked treats here than to buy at the chains like Cobb's, or worse yet trucked in bread. Bodhi's breads are high quality and wholesome. Great pastries and cinnamon rolls.

Been in to sit down for coffee, and have stopped in a few times to get pastries and bread to take home. Everything has been delicious, the coffee is great. They also have a stall at the Beban farmer's market.

Bodhi's recently made a wedding cake for my daughter. It was created to specification and was utterly delicious!

Bohdis is hands down the best artisan bakery in town! Bill and Candace lovingly craft crusty bread made from ancient grains, delectable sandwiches with fresh -grilled ingredients and mouth -watering french and danish style pastries 6 days a week. The espresso is also wonderful. Order Christmas goodies (my fave products are hazelnut shortbread and Stollen) or an over-the-top birthday cake.... More

There was a big line so we joined the mob. It was worth the wait. We bought the apricot and raspberry danishes, a pecan tart and a savoury current/hazelnut loaf. Everything was excellent. The loaf was very unique to us and tasty even days later toasted with a little butter. It was our first time and we will most certainly... More

We stopped in for coffee and pastries while we were having work done on out car. We had bread pudding and a chocolate crossaint. But the bread looked so good we also made a point of taking some with us, the coffee was also excellent. I would go there often if I lived in Nanaimo. The service was also top... More
