I called ahead to ensure that my dietary restrictions could be accommodated, and and they were with no problem. Turns out it was the chef who picked up the phone! When we reserved on line, we were able to advise of my allergies as well...so when we got to the restaurant they were fully aware of what I could and... More

Many brunches here over the last couple of years - consistently excellent. Friendly and prompt service, quality ingredients with west coast variety, large portions at very good price points, and a bustling spot for all. A delicious, great time.

Went for breakfast and had the Chorizo Frittata. No complaints.. I wasn't wowed by the dish, but it was a good breakfast. Excellent, friendly service, and a nice place to people-watch on Denman.

We also dined here using the Socialshopper coupon. It is a small neighborhood place that apparently has awesome live Jazz nights on Sundays (no reservations accepted). We dined here on a Saturday. The food was very good, the sangria OK. Braised short ribs were delish, the Potato Crusted Pacific Cod, though cooked very well was lacking in the amount of... More

Here's our favorite hang-out for our first night in Vancouver. This is the place where the locals get-together and enjoy the special priced drink of the day. We look forward to mussel's, frits, and veggies to go with the special!

My wife and I took advantage of the social shopper deal ($35 credit for $70 worth of food). We really enjoyed the food and experience. The only two negatives were: the loud music which by the way they turned down at my request and the Americano (too watered down); I wasn't charged for this. The appetizer (Mussels) was great. The...

We were cordially welcomed and shown to a lovely table in the window. Our shared appetizer of cheese, meat and nutmeats was very good. We selected mussels for an entree and they were delicious...plump, tender and seasoned perfectly. The well prepared and presented meal was just perfect with a bottle of good Shiraz. Good food, a nice table, pleasant service... More

Located right across from our hotel. After a day of traveling, with no breakfast this place was a welcome sight! Great burgers both veggie and beef. Delicious fries and an amazing house salad. All served by a friendly server who did her job well. As we began to roam this neighborhood, since it will be our home for the next... More

Went here for a Sunday morning breakfast. Very good choice. Hubby had the French toast and I had eggs, bacon and toast. Very quick service and good food. Just what you want in the morning. Coffee was good. Orange juice wasn't that great and was quite pricey, $5 per glass (US).
