Nice service and Fabulous food

We last visited 2 years ago and Jan's continues to offer an exquisite dining experience. Soft live music contributed to a warm and cosy evening. The tables inside are spaced so you are not close to the other diners. Jan prepares a lot of the dishes from scratch from the chef's open kitchen... read more

Wow, what a treat to find GF fish and chips. Plus there are numerous gluten free options on the menu. We definitely want to go back to try more. The service was excellently provided by a very friendly and accommodating server. She was so helpful. We had 2 toddlers in our lunch party. The view of the ocean is spectacular.The... More

We went to this place for the first time. It's very clean and has a bit of an ocean view if you sit on the patio. So we went for breakfast and my wife enjoyed her Salmon Eggs Benny. I ordered a basic 2 eggs & bacon. The only thing warm on my plate were the eggs. The rest of... More

As it was sunny but chilly we decided on an inside table. Diwali celebrations were taking place that day on the White Rock promenade, and we had a good view of the festivities from our table. We ordered the lunch special, Chicken penne. The food was delicious and care was taken to present an appealing plate along with garlic toast... More

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.

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!
