Nice surprise close to Japan Town

Fat Angel is an awesome, intimate place that is tucked away, reminiscent of a delightful Italian cafe that you happen to stumble upon. They have an excellent selection of craft beer and tasty wine and the food is fantastic. I love the locals only vibe and look forward to making our visits a regular habit.

It looks like a boutique specialist beer bar but is much more. The atmosphere was really relaxing and comfortable partly I suspect because it is not that big a place. We just walked up and were certainly not disappointed with the food or service which was great. Some of the best salads and slides we've ever had. They do also... More

A group of six of us stopped by on a Sunday evening. Since the place is small, we enjoyed a drink outside before a table was available. Several of us ordered the maple bacon butter, which was delicious. The chicken pot pie was really good (it came in deconstructed form), would definitely recommend it. Overall, we had a great time...

The food was good, the service - not really. The server was snotty while we ordered, then got our order wrong. Since she never came back to check on it, we ate what she brought. It took three tries to get a drink. Their beer list is amazing, but I didn't get mine until my meal was nearly done. Our... More

At first glance one might be forgiven for thinking that only a hundred plus types of ale are served here. That would be unfortunate, since the food is incredible. Our charming server carefully guided the three of us away from ordering more than one salad - happily, since it was served in a massive bowl which provided multiple servings of... More

We had a great dinner here. Too bad I don't drink but my sweetie tried a couple of different wines and we had the biggest and tastiest kale salad I have ever eaten. We also had nice flatbreads, flavoured butters and excellent bread. Delightful! Wish I could drink the beer too.

Great atmosphere, tight selection of adult beverage and the food is spot on. The bar keeps "eyed" and "nosed" each glass before drawing a beer or pouring a wine...(nice touch). Both gals engaged without being to involved and know their element. Thank you! This is a must go...
