I would say this was our go to when we were looking for a not so ordinary breakfast but you could also keep it simple for those picky eaters in your party. Priced high, as was our overall experience in Vancouver. Clean, friendly easy in and out parking.

The waitress was not aware of this term OOO which dates back to the .70's -means extra sauce. When the food arrive it was cold and every thing was in packets- no vinegar bottle,... More

White spot is usually one of those places you go to when you're hungry, and you don't expect too much from them. Just decent food and service. And that is exactly what I got. The place was not too backed, and the burgers were alright. I liked my salmon burger.

If you judge this restaurant by first impressions, you'll likely think the food matches the interior - dull and dreary. Within moments of being seated, though, I found out that the servers make up for the dimly lit restaurant. And, the food is great! I order the beef au jus with fries, and it was excellent. The fries were cooked... More
