I'm so glad I read the reviews ahead of time! This place is like a dinner show - only open for breakfast and lunch though. The interactions between the staff and customers are hilarious. Be prepared for a good amount of vulgarity and bring your...More

Went here with my partner and a friend and were immediately “greeted” by our host. He was extremely funny and crass, frequently making inappropriate but amusing comments about customers. The food here was very good with huge pancakes and a great variety of food. Wouldn’t...More

The food was absolutely delicious and probably the best service I have received anywhere in Vancouver. Great banter from the staff, couldn’t ask for a more better service.

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

I think they are still running ,we went there in November, they do a very good business and perhaps they went on vacation. They are not open for dinner. They are only open for breakfast and lunch.
