This old style café is in downtown Vancouver without having downtown prices. The food is excellent, service is efficient and friendly and the coffee is the best I have had in a restaurant for a long time.

We have just returned having visited the Acme cafe after a friend gave us the recommendation. Great service and amazing breakfast that is served all day and is very reasonably priced. I can highly recommend the 'Baked Eggs Benny' which is a different interpretation of a classic but very tasty! Located in Gastown this little cafe fits nicely in the... More

Great quality food at the Acme Cafe. The restaurant has a really neat nostalgic diner feel so if you are in the city for the 1st time or work downtown, this makes for a great lunch break stop. It is very small inside so come early or late but at noon time you might wait for a seat. I had... More

The location may not be the best in town but this cute cafe serves the most delicious food. Lunch or brunch, you can't go wrong here. Their eggs Benny is so unique and delicious, you will go back.

We were going to Gastown and our hotel clerk gave us a couple recommendations for breakfast and this was one of them. Both were on the same street, but the first had a wait list, so we checked out Acme Café and decided to stay. (Sorry, first restaurant...we didn't tell them to take our name off their list!) The neighborhood... More

They serve Breakfast all day and I was so happy to have it for lunch. This unassuming place was recommended by a local and boy were they right. The neighborhood was a little sketchy but no-one bothered us at all. This place is first come first serve and the line at noon was long but went quickly. It seem to... More

My mom and I found this place by accident and we were not dissappointed. Definitely one of the best breakfasts I've ever had and the coffee was great too (nothing worse than bad coffee at breakfast!) Service was great too and they had some special on where if you come by before a certain time, you get two meals for... More

Staying in Gastown

Neighborhood Profile
A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and stepping into a bygone era. With the distinction of being Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, the many plaques that stud the cobbled streets of Gastown tell the story of its colorful past, giving Vancouver's history a more lively presence here than anywhere else. Having been originally founded around a popular worker's saloon, it's no wonder that today some of Vancouver's best micro-breweries, creative cocktail joints, and corner bars can be found in this area. Classical charm suffuses its many vintage boutiques and the brick-built structures that an army of creative professionals call home.
