Best breakfast!

We absolutely loved the atmosphere, and best of all, were the omelettes we had for breakfast. The best ever! Would recommend to anyone...

Discovered this little place by accident. Its on the edge of Gastown. The service is not quite as good as some but its worth it. Highly recommend the Bean soup!

Delicious! We came for breakfast and had amazing French toast and salmon/egg/croissant. We sat near the display case mesmerized. Friendly service. At 9:30am on a Saturday, we thought we'd have a hard time getting a seat at a restaurant, but apparently all of Vancouver was also sleeping in. The crowd seemed to arrive everywhere closer to 10:30am.

My family is in Vancouver and I come back quite often for work. My boyfriend took me here for breakfast the day after he discovered this place and we loved it! I came back today for a 2nd time and breakfast was once again delicious! Everyone is so friendly and welcoming. This is now my fav breakfast spot for when... More

We ran into this place totally by accident, and boy were we thrilled that we did. The food is ridiculously yummy, and the desserts were to die for. YUM YUM YUM

After reading reviews we thought we would try this place for lunch. Worst Greek salad ever! Soggy tomatoes and cucumbers. The salad was not fresh. Cream soup had way too much lemon zest and the bread was very dry (stale). I agree with another reviewer; worst meal of our entire trip.

I really wanted to like this restaurant. I liked the cool vibe, the jazz music, & the simple décor. But, the service was barely average & the food was very disappointing. I ordered the strip loin steak sandwich with wild mushroom sauce, avocado, & bocconcini . What I got was a gray slab of tough meat, a gluey sauce, 3... More

Went to Gastown with my friend, and spotted this nice and simple place. We didn't expect much, but we ordered eggplant on pasta and my oh my - AMAZING! Finished the meal with a cheese cake, perfectly made, I will definitely be back.

Good portions, very fresh and tasty home cooked Italian style. Had the 3 types of ravioli dish with wild mushroom sauce and Italian sausage with penne dish. Lovely slice of fresh crispy/soft bread for dipping. It was a late lunch so we didn't have room to eat dinner.

Atmosphere says a lot about a place, brick walls, wood floors and tables, friendly, warm service, all packaged up with small prices and big taste allows me to whole-heartedly say try this at least once and see if you agree. A pitcher of green iced tea (you pick the flavor of tea) for $5.00. A large Greek salad for $7.75... More
