    Delicado's has been one of my favourite lunch spots in Nanaimo for years now, with fresh food, a funky atmosphere and AWESOME falafels - it's definitely a place that keeps me coming back for more. I love their chipotle sauce so much I sometimes go buy a small container of it to make my own wraps at home (it's doesn't work out the exact same, but that sauce is seriously great on everything!) If you get the chance, pop into any one of the 5 locations and try a roll-up!

It is definitely busy around lunch & dinner rushes, but that is usually a good sign! Try going mid-afternoon.

I remember when it was just the little hole in the wall on Fitzwilliam. :)

I've been ordering the same thing since the first day I walked in there. Chicken roll-up, medium-minus, extra chipo, extra sprouts.

The Victoria locations seem to have done away with the sunflower sprouts, which is sad, but otherwise every time I order one it's a trip down memory lane.
