“Brunch”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2014 via mobile

Food is good, but the service is pretty bad!

I had the salmon Benny. It was good, it came with hash brown.

Our server asked for drink. But it took so long. She didn't even give us any cutlery, one of my friends mug had a lipstick stain which was disgusting! don't they check the mug before pouring coffee??

When we ask for another coffee it took her a while to give us cream which was really annoying!!
I just hate server that forgets!

“Eat Breakfast Here!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2014

Ahhh - Sunday breakfast for lazy couples... there is no better place nearby to enjoy a great omelette and lots of coffee served by busy, friendly servers. I've tried almost all the omelettes in the place - you can't go wrong with any of them. There are line-ups of diners waiting to get in on most weekends. Most of the tables have a view of Bayview Street, which is bustling on sunny days and always interesting to look out at.

“Good food in a small place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

I am always pleasantly surprised by the food in this little place. It's not expensive, and yet the food has just a little flare. For exampleThe chicken quesadia adds richness with grilled sweet potato chunks, homemade salsa and good quality cheese and costs less than you'd pay at a chain restaurant. Low key atmosphere and friendly service.

“Best In-style breakfast, lunch and dinner place in Steveston”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2014

I have been many times to Cimona's, also placed many take-outs to feel confident in giving a great review.

This is a nice small "cafe/restaurant, located in the centre of the Steveston Village.

Not many places are open early, but Cimona's is. Great Omelets. They are creative and different, but also offer traditional options for those who rather "Sunny Side up + Hash-browns and Toast.

I am vegetarian and do enjoy their great options. If you haven't had a good experience with veggie food in Richmond, come to Cimona's and have the veggie quesadilla. Nice soups, omelets, burgers and signature dishes.

I do recommend it 110% you won't be wrong.

Best of all... prices are reasonable, beyond expectations.

“Consistently Good Food At Fair Price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2014

Over the past three years we have tried numerous breakfast establishments in Steveston Village. We keep coming back to Cimona's because of their tasty breakfasts. Our favourite is the traditional eggs, bacon and hash brown breakfast with toast. Fresh food, well prepared and great value when price is considered. The service is friendly and prompt. It's a comfortable place to have a relaxing start to your day. Cimona's can get very busy on sunny summer weekends, but it is worth a wait if you're patient. We strongly recommend this restaurant for a simple fresh and tasty breakfast.
