Don't let the name of this restaurant fool you. The food they serve is far more than edible! It's downright delicious. From home made soups to yummy breaded and spicy chicken sandwiches, you'll be glad you chose Edible Matters. The prices are a little higher than your run of the mill restaurant, but then you don't get great food and... More

All five of our meals were absolutely fresh and delicious...even the bread was baked in house! The service was excellent with our gracious waiters anticipating just what we needed. Washrooms were fully accessible and spotlessly clean.

I had a wonderful birthday brunch here with my daughter and husband yesterday. I had the back bacon benedict along with the pickled beet salad. Absolutely delicious. My daughter had the vegetarian benedict which she also adored and my husband had the fish cakes with beans which he also loved. To top it off they gave us carrot muffins with... More

My husband and I have driven by Edible Matters a number of times and thought we would give it a try. It was a little after 1.00 when we arrived, the restaurant was busy however we were the only ones waiting for a seat. Several customers passed by us to go directly to the bakery counter with their purchases and... More

Closed Mondays. Might want to avoid the bakery in the morning Tuesday. Supposed to be fresh but everything we purchased, cookies, tart, danish were all dry, dry, dry. Pricey, we dropped close to $30 on bread and some pastries. In Vancouver this would be the norm, for area here, they have ego. Good for something to take a business meet... More

We've been here several times over the past few months with great experiences every time. However, tonight's service seemed extremely poor from the time we sat down. I realize it's St Paddys day, but it wasn't that busy to have non-existent service. Took a few minutes to clean our dirty table, but, they were admittedly a little busy. Food was... More

It was our first visit, and I enjoyed a leisurely dinner on a weeknight with muted lighting and wall sconces. Our waitress was helpful, likeable and friendly. Our food was very tasty and stayed warm. I recommend the mushroom burger which comes with kettle chips and pickles. I like the way the tables are well spaced, so you feel comfortable... More

My wife and I have stopped here for lunch on a number of occasions and have always found it to be a very pleasant experience. Clean, comfortable, courteous and efficient service, music that allows one to converse and above all, delicious food. It's a very happy place to be.

My first visit to Edible Matters won't be my last. The food was fantastic and we were well tended to by the staff even though it was extremely busy. Definitely worth a visit.

We ate lunch here with our wedding party. We changed our reservation time and it ran closer to the busier time of day but the tables were ready and our food was served in good time even though there were almost 20 of us. Most everyone with us was from out of town and loved this place. Gluten free options... More
