Smitty's Nanaimo Not So Affordable Anymore
I took my son out for a treat yesterday. I've always been happy with Smitty's. I associate it with yummy, fast, affordable, so we went there. He ordered pumpkin pie with scoop of ice cream and an orange juice. I ordered cheesecake with strawberries on top and a coffee.
The bill was $22 plus tip. FOR A SNACK! I looked at the bill and my jaw dropped. That was a $6 dollar piece of cheese cake with $2 dollop of strawberries on top. I can go buy a whole cheesecake for that much! Pie was almost $4 and the scoop of ice cream was almost $2. If I had known I would have gotten the small orange juice instead of the $3 medium size.
Just, wow! So, when I went to pay my bill, I mentioned that I was pretty surprised at such an expensive afternoon snack. The woman at the till said, "yah, they just increased the prices and I was surprised too." She agreed with me. Even mentioned that their dinners cost more too (but she gets the discount).
My advice to you, look at the NEW menu prices before you order! Higher prices but the portions and quality are the same.
