“Just good food...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Came upon this whilst ambling through Vancouver city centre, and stopped for a hot drink and a snack lunch. Lovely and innovative selection of wraps and sandwiches for a quick visit...with plentiful seating, and - a nice touch - jugs of free iced water available on a central table. Reasonably priced and a professional ambience without fuss.

“Really great if you order the right thing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

I guess everyone has a different idea of what the right thing might be. But I would have given this place 5 stars if we hadn't decided to order the eggs instead of our usual after several days. We absolutely love the oatmeal and the quinoa with the poached egg. We ordered this day after day with the same great results. We also had cappuccino or latte. Both are excellent.

Then we decided to be different and got the eggs, ham or bacon, potatoes and toast. The eggs were just OK. The potatoes were undercooked, cold and just not good. The bread/toast was only ordinary and nothing special.

In the future I would definitely stick with the oatmeal and quinoa. I wouldn't hesitate to eat here again.

“Small portions, not worth the prices”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

We went there for breakfast and couldn't get gluten free bread nor the potatoes as they had flour. So I paid a la carte for two eggs, two sausages and a very small cup of fruit (about $12) The next day we went to Urban Fare where the prices were better, plate was plentiful and gluten-free was not an issue. They also forgot my fruit cup that I had to remind them about.

“A Good Local place for breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013 via mobile

Good choice of breakfasts at a reasonable price. A good location for the harbour hotels.
Try the 2 egg breakfast to get you though the day. ?........

“Okay Lunch”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

We had lunch here on our first day in Vancouver...the food was okay and the service was below average. The quantity and quality of what we got was okay for the price but I think there has to be a better place in that area of downtown to grab a quick lunch.
