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.

This is a wonderful modern diner with delicious food prepared lovingly by hand. I had an amazing goat-cheese/portobello/sundried-tomato frittata with delicious locally sourced sausage. When the bill arrived, we were amazed to see that one of our breakfasts was FREE! If you eat between 8...More

Absolutely loved this atmospheric little place - went there this morning at about 9am. Lucky we weren't later as there was a queue out the door (understandably). Suave but cute modernist late 50s French vibe with a clean interior design and smooth jazz in the...More

Decadent grilled three-cheese sandwich with cranberry. Sides of broccoli-almond slaw and chips (could have had soup, but somehow whenever I ask what today's soup is, it's %$$# mushroom!). Perfect, not too large, not slathered with extra ingredients. Wife's Montreal smoked meat sandwich also scored high....More

Stayed a minute away whilst visiting Vancouver. Loved this place. Friendly staff, delicious homely food all freshly prepared. Loved the retro style too.

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

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.
