Over 3" thick, in a homemade crust and loaded with ham, mushrooms, asparagus, brie; topped with bolognese sauce; served with a side salad with marinated green beans and a thick slice of homemade bread with a drizzle of olive oil. Coffee was excellent also. Happy was referred by a local tour guide, or would have walked right past this literal... More

We visited for lunch on spec whilst touring Gastown, and were delighted with the whole experience. We shared a fish ciopinno dish, priced at $25, which as well as being delicious was extremely well priced. The dish was accompanied by a superb salad and fresh bread and the service was good without being intrusive. We would wholeheartedly recommend a visit... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant by accident while walking through Vancouver in search for breakfast. We came in by the back door, which doubles as a chalk board with specialties. Very friendly service, excellent food quality and nice atmosphere. Next time we're in Vancouver, we will return there, this time not by accident...

Vancouver seems to be full of small, independent bistros and cafes representing hundreds of ethnicities and food types. On our first visit to the city, in order to begin our very first cruise vacation, my wife and I were on the hunt for the perfect place to have brunch before starting the boarding process in the afternoon. While buying a... More

Sit in the window and watch the world go by. Literally! I heard so many different languages from people walking by! The cioppino came highly recommended, and it was really tasty. Fresh fish - seven different kinds - in a tasty, flavorful broth. The pot in which it came was enough to feed a teenage boy, or two moderate eaters.... More

So pleased we found Brioche. Terrific dinner (wish they were open later) of eggplant parmigiana and wonderful sangria (served with a spoon so you can eat the fruit), great service and cheerful, welcoming employees.

Good spot recommended by my daughter as we both work nearby. It is a small Italian cafe and you order at the counter. My daughter had a steak sandwich served with shrimp bisque soup and both were delicious!! I had the eggplant parmesan with a side of green bean and asparagus salad. The salad was huge and the eggplant was... More

Found this restaurant while on search for a breakfast place. Waiters seemed not very motivated. My son was content with his french toast, he didn't touch his hot chocolate after the first sip any more - it had a weird aftertaste. My scrambled eggs were extremely oily, the sour dough bread was very dry and brittle, came with no butter.... More

I had a special which was a veal parmigiana sandwich. It was tasty but a bit overly messy and impossible to eat as a sandwich due to the height of the bread, so I'd rate that 4/5. I really liked the side tomato/zucchini/feta salad that came with it! (huge portion by the way once you add this side, I'd have... More
