I am pretty sure the just microwave the food there. I ordered spaghetti with meat balls, soggy and gross. This place (Slocan Restaurant) was good in the ‘90’s,. But.....

Stopped here for a bite to eat before we went to the VCBW Beer Fest at the PNE grounds. Decent service and the price was good.

The patio is nice on a sunny day. The food was just ok. Service was ok as the place was busy. I had the tequila lime chicken salad. Just ok. Really small portion of chicken.

I'm not a big breakfast eater but when at a restaurant I almost always order French toast, and this is some of the best I've had!

We go here every few months with our son. He used to live near it, and now that he doesn't, we still like to go. The burgers and sandwiches are good. Their fries are REALLY good. I don't know what they do differently. But they...are awesome. Free refills on coffee and soft drinks. Today our server was really great. Happy to go back again in a few months!More

Not my first time at the Slocan and certainly not my last. This area of East Hastings is one of my favourite walks, and what better way to fuel up than filling up with 2 easy over eggs (done perfectly), ham and toast (that I...could not finish) and two fluffy substantial pancakes. The platter also comes with hash browns that I asked to be left off my plate, because I knew I would not be able to find the room. The coffee is regular, pour out of the pot, no recipe required and the orange juice is cold and pulpy and the right fluid to wash down a platterful of food. The service was fast, friendly but not pandering. The waitress checked on our satisfaction twice, just enough to let us know that she cared. The food is not gourmet ... it is just plain good. My friend agreed that her House Omelet with ham, mushrooms and cheddar cheese was just right. You may find may find more attractive and eclectic decor in other restaurants, and more exotic choices, but sometimes comfort food with good service is all it takes to make your day. At $14.99, the East Van Breakfast may seem pricey, but it was all the food I needed for one day.More

My friends enjoyed their fully loaded burgers. I had the fish and chips.It was good. It came with a soup that was a bit thin but nice to include. They feature 4 dollar pints. Popular local watering hole.

If you’ve read by blog long enough, you probably know that I’m always looking for a good breakfast. The problem is that I’m running out of breakfast joints that actually open up early (especially on the weekends). Brunch is fine… but who wants to wait...until 10-11am? Having to run errands on an early Saturday morning, I dropped by The Slocan, a diner located in my old East Vancouver haunts. The restaurant interior isn’t glamorous but seems steadfast in their East Van working-class roots. There’s a small bar area to the side with most of the room occupied by old school booths and the venerated waitress seemed to have a good rapport with her regular customers. I decided to pay homage to where I grew up and ordered the East Van Breakfast ($14.45) with an Orange Pekoe ($2.85). The breakfast platter comes with 2 pancakes, two eggs, hash, toast (I picked rye), and your choice of meats (I picked bacon). The breakfast was okay, the thin bacon slices were crispy and the yolks were runny while the pancakes were fairly standard. I wasn’t a huge fan of the hash brown potatoes as they lacked crispness. Overall, this is a suitable breakfast if you’re looking to carb up but nothing that really stands out.More

We've been here about 4 times over the past 3-4 years. A couple of times it's been really good, a couple times just okay.This time was an "okay" time. Lasagna was pretty good. Soup was nice, but needed a fair bit of salt. Caesar salad...was good. The place was not busy at all, but still our server didn't check on us often enough for water refills or for us to order another round of beers. Prices were fine. Could be a wee bit cleaner. At any rate, it's a good steady place for solid meal that will fill you up.More
