“Hidden Gem on Granville”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

Happened to select this restaurant as it was close to where we parked. This is one of those places that you definitely don't want to judge from outward appearances. Inside the decor is simple and comfortable. The menu isn't too extensive, which is a plus and they're willing to make changes, as required, to suit the taste of the person ordering. Our server was super friendly and accommodating. I had the crab cake salad (with diced apple, cucumber and seeded tomatoe on butter lettuce with this slightly sweet viniagrette - so good!), my Aunt had eggs benedict (without the sides, with the English Muffin un-toasted). It came out quickly and was delicious - no complaints here! Definitely a restaurant I would seek out on my next trip back to Vancouver!

“A reliable non chain choice along up-market Granville Street”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

Caffe Barney is very reasonably priced, and a good choice for a casual meal-particularly pre theatre.

It is small, and the front entrance tight as you squeeze past the bar and a few tables. There are TV's in this area to catch a Canucks game or other sporting event. As you head towards the back it opens up and there are a number of tables.

The food and service is typically very reliable (a little slow the last time I went, but acceptable). There is a good choice - you can have a burger or pecan crusted chicken-maybe a stir fry catches your eye or pasta. Breakfasts are very well priced, and again, a good choice. The caesar salad is very good-love those croutons.

It is nice to support a non chain and typically this is a good choice.

“Great place for breakfast/lunch/brunch.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

This is a"go to" spot on Granville South of Broadway. The street has many restaurants but this is a favourite for locals. The wait in line is worth it. Very casual and very noisy but great atmosphere. Good egg dished but try the chicken burger..very good!!

“Amazing Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012 via mobile

I recently went there for breakfast with my wife and it was an amazing breakfast. They had many unique items that were quite tasty. I had the breakfast burrito and thought it was one of the best burritos I have had. My wife had the omelette and she really loved it too. So great food there.
