“Tafs is Tops!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

I have been frequenting Tafs Cafe in Vancouver for at least 10 years now.
I can attest that both their food and service have maintained a consistently high standard the whole time!
Their menu is simple (in a good way of course!) but I have tested pretty well everything, and cannot find fault in any selection so far....except I was sad to see their pecan pie disappear! With ice cream it was to die for!
Soups are always homemade, salads are fresh, never overly dressed, pastas are well balanced and never heavy.
Wine selection is narrow but totally acceptable BC vintage - and for the price, a steal at $5 a glass!
(red or white)
You can't go wrong with the ambience either - surrounded by on-going art exhibits (so Vancouver, yeah!) and great variety of styles of music (unlike many chain restaurants that churn out the same style music hour after hour that tires the ear after 10 minutes!!!)
Thanks to these 2 brother owners, who have spent over 20 years of love and devotion to the Granville Street community in great service and love of food - a place you can always feel at home; a place to hang your hat sunshine or winter rain - Taf's always makes you feel welcome.....you just can't go wrong here!

“Decent cheap food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

We got the burger and beer deal for $10CAD. The burger was tasty and came with a salad and the beer was a local beer. I really liked it

“Great Cafe”

Taf's has wonderful and fresh food, great service and super prices. It is also very conveniently located in the Granville entertainment district. I have had lunch there many, many times and will again in the future.
