We had breakfast with our two children, and the waffles were very popular! Selection of sides provided the flexibility to create your own breakfast, and the menu items were tasty and unique. It's very popular so expect to wait for a table!

I come here fairly often, never had service and food is always delicious! Make sure you try the waffles (I like them with the passion fruit) with one of their hot chocolates with a twist. The wolves breakfast is definitely my go to and will satisfy anyone who like bacon.

We got to the cafe at around 9:45am on a holiday. It was already full. We left our name and went back after about 30 mins to check. In the meantime, we went to the nearby Hudson's Bay department store to kill time. When we returned, our table was almost ready. So, we waited there for another 10 mins or... More

My wife found a review for Cafe Medina online and decided that's where we would go for Sunday Brunch..... I know better than to argue with that sort of statement, and to be honest she does have an instinct for this sort of thing. It was a drizzly morning when we walked the short distance from our hotel to Richards... More

A wait to get in, then you arrive at your cozy table. Delicious food, hot coffee, and such a wonderful ambiance. Old meets new, vintage surroundings. A must if you are in the city. The early bird gets the table, no reservations.

Cafe Medina is a lovely option for brunch because of its charming ambiance. Polished wood, lights, and bright windows add to its cozy cafe vibes. They are always very busy, especially near the weekend. We were not able to get seats at a table so instead opted to sit at the bar area where the music was louder than usual.... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
