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

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.

Found this café by accident as it was off the main tourist area. Jason our server was excellent. The menu was very good and the food was homely and very tasty. The café itself was very comfortable and the atmosphere was great. Would like to have tried the homemade pastries etc, but we were all full from our brunch. This... More

Head to Acme for a wonderful setting and great home cooked food. Love it there and try to go at least once a week if I have a business meeting or a hankering for a piece of pie.

We had been recommended this place by a friend and actually went looking for it - I'm not sure we would have found it unless looking as it seemed to be just off the main tourist route but it was worth a little detour. We were there at a quiet time of day (about 3pm) for a late lunch but... More
