We spent a week in Vancouver and I think we ate here five times. Just love this place, the food is amazing but the service is entertaining to say the least. I wish that we had something like this in Australia. Thanks guys for making our visit to your town so incredible.

It's not for young children but the food was delicious and the brunch menu is really creative. The bacon avocado shrimp bennies were to die for. For great food served with a side of tongue lashing this is the place to be lol.

If you haven't been to the Elbow Room Cafe or taken your out of town guests here, take them stat! The staff used to be super rude but they've unfortunately toned it down now. I guess some grumps must've gone here and ruined it for the rest of us...Alright.. continuing with the review... Portions are HUGE! For carnivores I recommend The Bryan over the more masculine and beefy sounding Rocky 5, trust me on this,, other than that... GET YOUR OWN DAMN COFFEE and be ready to be made fun of!! ;)

Came here by recommendation & was not disappointed. The food was really good quality & there was loads of it too. Our only disappointment was that the service was too nice & we did not get told off as expected!!

I love their breakfasts. There's always plenty of food and it's cooked just the way you want it. I've been coming here for years - usually for breakfast. Expect the waiters to be loud and obnoxious but they know their limits.

Only bring your kids of you are ok with them being around swearing.

Expect a great meal and if the timing is right you'll be amused and entertained.
