“Great Breakfast Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2011

Our favorite Breakfast place when in Vancouver. The Bennies are the best ever! Lots of different types and you can mix and match.

“Nice for Breakfast”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2011

Went here for breakfast. Had the eggs benedict (Tomato and Avocado and the Bacon Bennie). They allow you to split the order so you can try the different flavors. Service was good and the breakfast comes out fast. You are in and out within an hour. Really no time to linger as there is a long line waiting to get in.

“Good food, "cozy" atmosphere”

The tables are quite close together. The food tastes good though, check the black board for the specials.

“Very nice cafe with good breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2010

This is a small but beautiful cafe near Kitsilano Beach. It has a very homey and cozy feeling with lots of pictures from the owner's world travel experiences on the wall. Service was friendly and efficient and the food (Eggs Benedict and French Toast) was very good. The usual coffee refill and the coffee itself was freshly brewed and hadn't lingered around for half a day. Will definitely go there again.

Average good place. A good egg benedict restaurant, but a bit expensive sometimes (Don't order a side of meat for breakfast after breakfast hours, it'll cost extra)
