The enjoyment of being on the patio of this small restaurant, looking out at the ocean, and the USA is only beaten by the home cooked food of Jan. Yes a self monikered facility, the food is prepared in a fully open kitchen. Various dishes cover the entire palette of options. Breakfast with healthy portions, Bison burgers, amazing salads, some... More

Went there for breakfast, it was the only place with a view open at 10am. The food was delivered fast but other than that we were ignored. I had to repeatedly ask for coffee an more cream. The eggs benny was great though a small portion for a pricey seventeen dollars. Breakfast and non-alcoholic beverages for three was over fifty... More

I had some friends visiting from Los Angeles, and we wanted to go out for brunch. We went down to the beach and Jan's was one of the few restaurants open at that time (around 11 a.m.), so we decided to try it. I had crepes filled with camembert and topped with a sort of burned marmalade sauce which was... More

I travel across Canada a fair bit for work and have a few gems I always visit when I am in the Lower Mainland. EVERY single time I make sure I have time to sit at Jan's to eat and take in the view from any of the seats, especially the patio. The menu is a spirited. The staff is... More

We went to Jan's for brunch just to enjoy the a wonderful view of the waterfront from the front patio. It had rained all night, and the sun was starting to peek through the clouds. The food was all made from scratch, and was as wonderful as the view. Not often do I get an "Oh My!" meal at a... More

Jan's homemade creations and fresh food will delight anyone's palate. But for anyone looking for gluten free options, there's nowhere better. The fish and chips, unreal. Crispy, golden and delicious and you would never think it was gluten free! I'm so glad I found this beautiful restaurant right on the beach!

On our way into Vancouver from the airport we diverted and stopped at Jan's for breakfast.. When I kept saying over and over... Mmmm... Until my partner told me to stop, I knew we NAILED IT!!!

Located in White Rock close to the pier, Jan's on the beach delivered a meal enjoyed by all. The variety of the menu had something that appealed to the finicky eaters in my family and everyone was satisfied. We had the "Pulled Pork Sandwich"' $16, the "Hearty Italian Carne Panini" $15, the "Spinach & Ricotta Cannelloni" $17, and the Halibut... More

We stumbled upon Jan's on the Beach while looking for breakfast. Good thing we did! We both had one of the Eggs Benny (Cindy had shrimp and I had salmon). Wow, what an incredible way to awaken the taste buds in the morning. Plus the patio view across the bay is amazing, especially during the quiet of the morning. We... More
