Cranberry Arms Restaurant, Cedar, B.C.

Yesterday we drove into Cedar to buy a few items at 49th Parallel and on the way home, Don asked me if I wanted to go to Cranberry Arms and share some Fish and Chips. I have mentioned before that we have found these to be the best in Nanaimo and area and I was not about to say no.

It had been closed for awhile, probably due to the length of time we have had the Covid virus drag on, and were delighted to see the Open sign. When we went in, we were greeted by the friendliest gentleman and after showing him the Covid passports, we sat down and we didn’t even hesitate for a second to place our order.

Of course, we had our regular beverage and asked to share a 2 piece Fish and Chips. Well….it came out looking like two individual orders. Each plate had two pieces of fish, chips, and one of the best coleslaws given at any restaurant anywhere. Piping hot and super great fries.

We were told he is the new “owner/manager” (I’m guessing) and I suggested to him that, due to the fact they have a new Chef, they do not change one thing on the Fish and Chip plate. He said they would never change what works. Hurray!

Glad you are Open and we will be back again and again and again.

La Carciofi Pizzeria

Last night we met our very dear friend at La Carciofi Pizzeria for dinner and ‘catch up’ on each other lives for the past two months. We had been here a year ago, although always wanting to return but hadn’t. Don and I were so excited to go back and it was well worth the anticipation.

Kathleen and I ordered a glass of wine to start and Don ordered a soda. We each ordered a pizza and, of course, all were different. Kathleen and I ordered our pizzas with a cream sauce and Don opted for a red sauce.

The crusts on the pizza are thin, crispy and puffy on top. Light as air and soooooo good. Mine was a mushroom pizza and I ate all but one slice. Unheard of for me. Usually I have 2, maybe 3 slices and am done. Don had artichoke, olives, mushrooms and pepperoni.

Don ate a little more than half of his and our friend, who is wiser than us, ate a few slices and took the rest back home for her lunch today.

This restaurant is small, but clean. and the service is awesome. The food is beyond your dreams. We will definitely be back and sooner than later.
