Went here for breakfast on my first day in Canada. The service was lovely and the menu expansive for vegans, gluten free and meat eaters. I had the vegan breakfast poutins and finished every last bite! Mains are around $10 and appetisers $6, amazing value! The next day (to cure my hangover) I ordered takeaway from them and had the...

Went for Sunday brunch around 10 AM. About 30% full. Waiting for tables by 11. Got water, coffee (good, strong) and menu on arriving. Menu is a bit unusual for choices but managed to settle on the Breakfast Poutine and Veggie Hash. Poutine a bit heavy with nice hash browns (not deep fried pre-cut - woo hoo!!). The Veggie Hash...

This place is great! There are so many options for everyone, including your friends that don't eat dairy, gluten or meat. You can pretty make alterations to pretty much everything on the menu to fit your needs. They even have vegan Pina Coladas! Some of my favorites are the: -Vegan corn and black bean hash -Hot head burger -Vegan nachos... More

The Wallflower's location tells a lot: in the middle of an edgy, artsy, economically buoyant part of Vancouver. All sorts of people--but mostly the 20-somethings--are obviously welcome here. From the art on the wall, to the decorations on the servers (I mean their jewellery), to the very pleasant attitude of the whole establishment, the Wallflower is a fun place. But...the... More

Everyone can eat here whether you're on a gluten free diet or not. We ate here for breakfast on a weekend. Had a 40 minute wait to seat 5 of us but it was well worth the wait. Others are commenting on service but our server was excellent, and we didn't wait long for food. The food looked and tasted... More

So off to the Wallflower for Mother's Day dinner - 7 of us - 3 moms and 3 young adults and a friend. I had just eaten there 2 nights earlier and had recommended it. The place was not busy - this place gets hopping - there was no lineup and no -one seated along the edges. I was expecting... More

Checked out the Wallflower on Main in Vancouver last night. Service was almost non-existent. I waited over half an hour for my soup and salad to come to the table. The mushroom soup was so thick, I could have papered a wall with it. Oh, and the Christmas mug was really special too (since it's late January). Quaint it ain't,... More

I'm a local (ish - from the suburbs) and I love to go to this place for gluten-free poutine and ice cream sandwiches. I also often get the turkey-cranberry sandwich (gluten-free) with poutine subbed for fries, and share that and an ice cream sandwich with a friend. I've never had bad food here. Salads are good, sandwiches are good, poutine... More
