“Traditional Jewish Deli with Modern Updates.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

A favorite haunt of mine on the weekends, the coffee is good and the ambiance is interesting, full of local people. As a traditionalist I always go for the lox, cream-cheese on a bagel and it is awesome. The location is great too, if you are on an errand filled day. My mouth is watering, must be time for another visit. :)

“Delicious cinnamon buns...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

We like to stop at a Solly's for a great cup of coffee (Ethicial Bean) and a truly delicious cinnamon bun. The buns are the best with lots of cinnamon and that homemade flavour. You can slather it with their cream cheese icing for an added treat. We consider our stop a coffee break so are not terribly bothered by the not so great setting and atmosphere. You may not be able to get a chair and table. We come for the buns!!!!

“Good Bakery!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

We tried the cinnamon buns on the strength of a friend's reccomendation and it was very good! No frosting on top, but very moist and flavourful.. They also have chocolate babka, which I will have to try next. The cappucino we had was also very good, some of the best I've had in Vancouver. The parking is indeed scarce as mentioned by others, but the seating inside was adequate when we were there (noonish on a Monday) , and it was clean and pleasant.

“Excellent Jewish Bakery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

Their cinnamon buns are the best we've ever had. Their rugalleh are tasty little tidbits. So are their yam knishes and their chicken soup. What's not to like?!
