Pirate Chips was founded in 2003 by Angela Nodwell, a fourth generation Nanaimoite. Since then, this greasy spoon diner has achieved legend status in the Nanaimo community as THE place for feel-good food. While it’s not a fancy joint by any means, Pirate Chips stands out in the herd for its homemade food – prepared fresh every day – and fun, thoughtful service. Don’t worry, allergies can be taken care of as over half our menu is gluten-free. And we have vegetarian options too!
