Awesome Family Run Restaurant with Vegan & Organic Options

The breakfast eggs Benny with hash browns was delicious and a cup of fresh squeezed orange juice was a great add to the meal. A family run business and the tables are cleared and cleaned quickly. The location was nice and breezy from the open doors. It can get quite busy in here depending on the... read more

A friend took me here recently, and I was seriously pleasantly surprised. The food was great, and the space was really inviting. It was a rainy day (surprise!), and it was warm and cozy inside. I would return here any time. Our friend earned our undying affection for this find.

First off, Trip Advisor has this restaurant mixed up with another one further down Commercial Drive. This one is in the 1300 hundred block. With that out of the way...we love this place. The atmosphere is nice and the food is good. The owner is a great person and will chat with you when things slow down. It's a family... More

We went here for breakfast as soon as they opened. Friendly helpful staff in a nice vegetarian "dive" restaurant. Nothing matches and it has a rustic feel to it. The menu is written on huge chalk boards and there is a good variety. You order at the till and then its kind of self serve from there. I had the... More

This place used to be kid friendly, but the other night I found out it only is when it suits the staff. They may have a designated play area, but the other night we went there and the event folks came to set up early (6:30pm) for an 8pm start. The place started to get really busy for the event,...

The food here is always good, never amazing but solidly good. I would give it 4 stars, but the (counter) service is a bit slow.

Staying in Commercial Drive

Neighborhood Profile
Commercial Drive
Commercial Drive, also called "The Drive," comprises of twelve sauntering blocks of modest and unfussy counter-culture. Straddling the line between sophisticated and unadorned, it is favoured by students, artists, writers, designers, and start-ups, and suffused throughout with a healthy off-beat counter-culture. The kind of neighbourhood which well-springs thought-revolutions and has the odd bit of self-aware graffiti, Commercial Drive has resisted gentrification in favor of continuing to build a thriving den of affordable multiculturalism. Once known as Vancouver's "Little Italy," it has also been the immigration point for Guatemalans, Hondurans, and Portuguese to the city. The resulting hodgepodge makes for poetry readings in espresso cafes, social debates in early-open bakeries, and eco-activism posters pinned up in the many multi-ethnic markets in the area. Commercial Drive is where you go to feel like a local, and if you have them, bring the kids – The Drive has a number of bookshops, toy stores, and attractions to get them involved too.
