A brunch treat

I love Acme for brunch on a weekend - I can't remember how many friends I've eaten brunch here with. If you do come on the weekend, just make sure you don't arrive too late as you might have to wait in line. This is definitely a hipster place, but I like how the service is friendly & attentive... read more

An interresting place for having lunch. We took a full plate with Blt sandwich and turkey sandwich , brocoli salad and chips. The Apple pie and the pecan pie are another reason to try this place! Price is correct, around 40 dollars for 2 plates and 2 desserts.

I came here for brunch today. Had a delicious pretzel roll sandwich with hash browns and salad. The servers were friendly and attentive and the restaurant has a current vibe without feeling too trendy or hipster. It is a great addition to this area of town. Also, we were too full for pie or dessert but what they had on... More

The worst dining experience of the year. I will never go back. The bearded manager was one of the most unpleasant people I have ever come in contact with.

We were in Vancouver for Grey Cup weekend and actually stumbled upon this place by accident and decided to take a look. The staff were extremely friendly and as we sat around the lunch counter, we also had an opportunity to chat with the owner. Top notch fellow. The breakfast options caught our attention, as did the specialty coffee! Be... More

This place definitely has that pretentious hipster feel to it and food to match. (For the record i was a chef for 10 years) First thing i noticed was that there was no grill (Odd for a cafe..) But a Industrial Convention Oven and a consumer one.. Maybe they couldn't get a gas line in ? I started by ordering... More

The space is incredible! Very old school diner feeling. Neighborhood is interesting and electic, serivce was responsive and good. Food was pretty good. Salads are big and nice, try the seafood salad if looking for health option. I had the veggie soup, which I normally HATE! But this veggie soup was soooo good. Fresh and light. My dining companion had... More

The restaurant/cafe is located in Gastown conveniently located near Canada Place and Downtown. It is unassuming to look at but is a great place to stop for a relatively inexpensive bite to eat. The bake their own gluten free bread and have a range of options for coeliacs.
