“Favourite Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

I live nearby and this is my favourite restaurant in the city. Sure there is better food at Hawksworth and cooler cocktails at Diamond, but in terms of overall balance of food, drinks, and vibe, this is is my favourite place.

One thing I would say is I don't really recommend the brunch (there are tons of great brunch spots in Vancouver - see Cafe Zen or Twisted Fork). The hash is good, but I don't really get the tuna benny at all. Stick to dinner here.
