Mac and cheese!

I read that this was one of the best places in the whole of Vancouver for good old Mac & Cheese. It was just around the corner from my hotel, so I thought I'd give it a try - on my last day, I wish I'd gone earlier and had the chance for a return visit. The Mac & Cheese... read more

We ate here twice on a recent four-day weekend in Vancouver, once for Sunday brunch and once for dinner. Both times were delicious. The brunch was particularly good. Service was good, and our waitress for brunch was the best -- attentive and engaging. It's not high-end foodie food, but it's creative and yummy.

My wife and I visited after hearing about it on TA and we were not disappointed. The owners sister waited on us and could not have been more helpful. I selected the meatloaf sandwich which was the best I have ever had. The quiche my wife had was outstanding. If we were in town another day we would have come... More

Very real banana cream pie, not the artificially flavored stuff. Hands down best Almond Pecan pie ever! Coffee was topped up and never hit bottom! All the staff were friendly and diligent about tending any needs.

We are holidaying with family and friends in Vancouver and we're looking for a great cafe to have breakfast. We have some people in our party who are gluten intolerant, so this is an important consideration. We were recommended Acme cafe and we were not disappointed. The food was great with a great selection of gluten free options (they bake... More

Staying in Vancouver, and came upon this amazing and delicious food. All handmade and fresh. The prices are reasonable. Not a large place- so don't recommend large groups. First come first serve. A must try.

What a great spot for lunch! We were in Gastown, and so it was a quick walk over to this restaurant. The place is quirky, the service very good and the food was terrific. Surprisingly delicious because it seems so unassuming.

Everything is made in house and their counter treats are fantastic. I have tried several and they taste a good as they look. Menu is really good with a wide variety, served promptly, seasoned nicely. Have only dealt with nice servers who have a bit of personality which is great to see. Will continue to stop by this cafe.

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, but... More
