Had breakfast here with my sister and her fiancé. The concept is interesting-being told to sit your a#* down and to get your own f@*)$-+ water was kind of like being at home when all of our family is around. The true test of any...More

We heard this was a little hole in the wall diner that’s claim to fame is very cheaky servers with good food quality. It was exactly that. Our server was fun not too crazy and efficient. Our food was good quesadillas, soup, salad, beer, it...More

This place is for sure a must go spot if you still have a sense of humour. Laughed the whole meal through and the breakfast was great as well.

We ordered Thelma, New Yorker, The Bryan and Big Ben. All of us enjoyed our breakfast. Considered quite a huge portion for us. Should have ordered one add on hash brown instead of two. Price is also reasonable. Less than $80 before tips. Free flow...More

Great selection of food. Be prepared to line up for a table. Well worth the wait. Quirky little place with an apt name. Food was great and portion sizes are good. The “Thelma” was very tasty!

Love this place, good value meals, we had breakfast and there was a great selection, with good coffe. But the main reason you go there is for the staff, you’ll enjoy a great meal, at good value, with plenty of laughs.

We live around the area and this place is very popular. So much so that there is a long wait by the time we reached at 10am. Awesome hearty breakfast. They are know for their humongous 12 inch pancakes. Went there twice a week for...More

West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines
verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with
Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a
paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and
perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most
languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset
Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to
take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along
