“Great Breakfast or Carb hit diner!”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

Authentic 50's Diner that also has Veggie & Vegan options on the menu too so it can cater for all, The food is 'Diner food' but clean & healthier than most :-)
Kid friendly too, it's not very big so you may have to queue, there's plenty of '50's & 60's diner memorabilia to feed your eyes too.
There's free wifi too if you need.

“Excellent breakfast, slow service, fast eating”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

This place is well known for their breakfast therefore expect a queue on weekends. Once we were seated it took them a while to bring the food (around 25 minutes after ordering) but the Big A-- Breakfast was great! We loved the food but wish they hadn't handed us the bill after 15min of receiving our food without asking for it... we had waited 45min outside to get in!

“Step back in time!”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

Don't be discouraged by the long line up, just make sure you get your name on the wait list when you arrive. Dining room is small but staff do a great job getting people through. They are super friendly and although run off of their feet, quite happy to chat when at your table. The menu is extensive with brunch being served until 3 pm. You'll love the crazy retro decor with some furniture being original as far back as the '50's. Go hungry!!

“Awesome Shakes”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

Best lime milkshake I have had in years. Great burgers and fries, worth the wait to get in. Real diner in the heart of downtown Vancouver, really nice staff too.

“just as good as I remembered”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

In June 2012, I loved the breakfast here. I went back in August 2013, and loved it just as much. But this time, we had dinner here as well. My kids loved it so much, they asked to return for breakfast. So yes, we went to the same restaurant twice in 24 hours. It's great for both vegetarians and meat eaters. They have cocktails, ice cream, and everything in between!
