Have just moved to Vancouver from the UK so was stunned by the size of this huge breakfast plate when ordering the Dutchman Style Platter. We were walking up Cambie street when we saw this very hidden-away gem of a cafe. Bottomless coffee for $2.40...More

On the search for breakfast we came across this place, not the best option but reasonable if you are hungry and like Holandiase sauce, many old pictures of strangers and old beer glasses on the wall ;)...

This place has the old-school feel of Vancouver before everything start to get homogeneous and sterile. It's got the feel of a family restaurant with the quirks and personality of its Dutch founder. It has a multicultural feel, too, since the menu has items (centered...More
