We (a threesome) arrived at Kalvin's at 10:55 am, the 'open' sign was not on, but the door was open, we were told to come in, and were seated and being served tea, along with menus, before it's opening time of 11 am.

The lowest point in our last visit to Vancouver was our dinnr at Kalvin's. At first glance, it looked bad. We should have followed our instinct and leave. They had no options on the menu for either vegetarians or people on a diet. The corn soup was starchy and too sweet and the wonton soup was tasteless. The chicken with... More
