This café I believe is open 24 hours a day ... it is essentially a place for UBC students to study whenever they want. We had a couple of beers (Stanley Park beers) which were OK ... the food looked like typical Student café AKA mediocre. The ambiance was interesting and the service was slow. Basically nothing special.

Snacks and tea for the three of us: $25.00 Being able to meet friends later in the evening at a place that wasn't going to close and didn't care how long we sat talking on their patio: priceless

This place means well, the food is good, but reheated in a microwave, which should make it fast but in my case it took about 20 minutes to get a quiche. When I asked whether it would be delivered to the table they said no they just call it out. They didn't call it out and it sat there getting... More

Think of an overpriced Starbucks with people surfing the internet and acting pretentious and pseudo intellectual. This is what you get from Calhouns. Essentially this place serves coffee, pastries and quick service food. My recommendation is go visit other places once you notice the prices on the menu of Calhouns.

Food is okay. Casual atmosphere great. What is amazing are the hours - 24 hours. I was stuck in Vancouver one December 26 waiting for my son to arrive on a much delayed flight from Europe. Nothing else was open past 8 pm. At Calhoun's I was able to sit, drink tea, have a snack and wait to drive to... More

Seems over-rated. I had the Cheesy Penne.. it was very bland and the noodles were dried out. I also dont like how they microwaved what i ordered.

I love this place for a fast lunch when I need a high speed internet connection. It has lots of great food for lunch and great coffee! Nice service and prices are decent. A panini and coffee was only ten bucks, but small bowl of fruit was over seven bucks. That all being said I will always use this as... More

We found Calhoun's while looking for someplace open at 9:30pm serving coffee-harder than you might imagine! Lots of pluses at this coffee shop: free wifi, lots of seating, good coffee, desserts & meals, ambiance, 24hours. We will visit again!

Good: open late. no fuss. decent snacks, desserts, and drinks. Bad: super busy during exam time! be prepared for tables upon tables of ear-plugged students with laptops signed into facebook.
