Tucked away in hotel, I'm thinking this is a better spot to grab coffee, tea, pasty and start the morning that dine for lunch. We had lunch, the pizza was good, thin crust but nothing special.

They have fresh squeezed orange juice, wonderful buttermilk scone and opens at 6:00 in the morning. Well, if you are in a hurry, this may not be your first choice.

I liked the availability of excellent coffee, pastries, and some excellent specials everyday. Vancouver is an expensive city and this seemed a reasonable in hotel option for good food.

The variety of foods for lunch and breakfast were just right. I would recommend the specials of the day. It is nice that there is such easy access to the Cafe from the hotel and the street.
