A great menu - breakfast, lunch, dinner. NOT regular diner fare. I had a roasted veggie sandwich filled with zucchini, mushrooms, roasted red pepper, sprouts and goat cheese; a cup of carrot dill soup; followed by homemade apple pie - all for $16!

stepping into a bygone era. With the distinction of
being Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, the many

SERVING BREAKFAST ALL DAY, EVERY DAY! Located just East of the Woodward's complex on Hastings Street in the historic Paris Block. Open every day of the year aside from December 24, 25 & 26. Excellent food made to order, and all pies and pastries baked from scratch, in-house.
