This is a wonderful truly unique place to have breakfast. The service and food is excellent. Make sure to go early to get in line before opening as the wait can be very long. The food is worth it you won't be disappointed.

Yes - you will wait in line for this favorite Vancouver breakfast/lunch spot. And you know what? It'll be worth the wait!! Terrific ambiance (small - hence the wait situation); excellent quality food - we had breakfast and it was amazing!

A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and
stepping into a bygone era. With the distinction of
being Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, the many
plaques that stud the cobbled streets of Gastown tell
the story of its colorful past, giving Vancouver's
history a more lively presence here than anywhere
