For you breakfast lovers or late risers, breakfast is served all day! The Baked Eggs Benny is different from the traditional Benny you've experienced. It's layered with all kinds of goodness! I have to say their Hollandaise sauce is simply To. Die. For. Being a...More

It was a step back in time with arborite counters with metal trim and round swivel diner seats...and retro music. But the food was current. I ordered a veggie sandwich on a toasted ciabbata bun, that had such a delicious flavour. The pastries in the...More

Friendly service, tasty coffee and an assortment of delicious pastries, including an unusual selection of pies. It has a relaxed ambiance and friendly feel. Good stuff.

We stopped by on recommendation from a friend who raved. We ordered the albacore tuna salad with soy ginger vinaigrette dressing which was marvelous. Also had a slice of the banana cream pie and tea. All very tasty and the staff was friendly and helpful.

Great cafe in downtown. Thought the space is small, we got sat and served quickly. Server was very kind and helpful. Food was hot. All you can ask for when you're starving after walking around so much! Would come again.

Slow service, staff look liked tiered, and unenthusiastic. Food is not bad and not pricy at all. I suggest a little bit more decorations inside.

We found out they have an early bird special (2 for the price of 1) so we took advantage and had a great breakfast for a really reasonable price. The smoked salmon was delicious as was our breakfast sandwich. Wouldn't hesitate to return.

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
else. Having been originally founded around a popular
worker's saloon, it's no wonder that today some of

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.
