We come here for breakfast or lunch on our twice-yearly trips to Vancouver & it's always a treat. Not fancy, but good food & cheerful service. Today we shared the 3-eggs bene chef special with spinach & a bottle of lovely Prosecco--excellent!

Visited a couple of days ago with my friends for a late lunch and I was fairly surprised! What a great spot! I especially loved the ambiance of the the place, small and cozy, very european and unlike classic 'cold' canadian restaurants. The food was excellent! I shared a salmon pasta and a blt caesar salad with a friend and... More

We ate breakfast here on a Sunday morning. It was a bit pricey (more than $10 just for food). However, if I reframe the situation and call it Sunday brunch instead of Sunday breakfast, then it was a good deal. I had a dish with scrambled eggs and smoked salmon, and it was tasty. It came with a fruit salad... More

This joint is jumpin! One of my favorite lunch spots, great selection of freshly made foods. The wild mushroom gnocchi and the lamb shank are my favorite. The soups are also a good option. Hint the outside tables are great on a sunny day but wine is only served inside.

Friendly prompt service, good advice on wine choice and tasty ravioli and eggplant dishes with rustic vegetable sauce and salad respectively made for heathy and enjoyable dinners in this small Gastown Italian cafe at a reasonable price. As more Italian than French the name seems a little misleading tho!

We were in Vancouver for a few hours and needed a local place for breakfast. The hotel recommend another place and on our way we came across this little place. Looked inviting so we have it a shot. Very small and quaint neighborhood Italian restaurant. Most tables were taken but we squeezed into one by the door. The servers were... More

We went here after reading the good reviews on tripadvisor but was really disappointed with it. The quiche was not to our liking and it's think topping made it difficult to cut through. The bread was very dry, the soup wasn't to my liking and they forgot to bring my husband his salad. We inquired about the salad and waited... More

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...
