“Brunch or lunch ”
Reviewed 12 September 2016 via mobile

The location may not be the best in town but this cute cafe serves the most delicious food. Lunch or brunch, you can't go wrong here. Their eggs Benny is so unique and delicious, you will go back.

“Surprise!!!”
Reviewed 8 September 2016

We were going to Gastown and our hotel clerk gave us a couple recommendations for breakfast and this was one of them. Both were on the same street, but the first had a wait list, so we checked out Acme Café and decided to stay. (Sorry, first restaurant...we didn't tell them to take our name off their list!) The neighborhood was slightly off-putting with lots of street people about...some obviously mentally disturbed. This is not Gastown, but a few short blocks away.

My husband was ready to turn around, but we went into the cafe and felt instantly at home. Acme is vintage charming and our waitress was delightful and attentive and very chatty. She handled most of the tables herself and did a splendid job. I had the frittata which was excellent and our party of four were all happy with their orders and the good coffee. It was also reasonable compared to anything in the downtown area near the big hotels.

After breakfast/brunch it was a quick walk to Gastown.

Great locals spot for yummy breakfast and just try to not be tempted by the baked goodies! They now do breakfast all day so we had breakfast for an early dinner :)

“One of the best breakfast spots I have tried”
Reviewed 31 August 2016

They serve Breakfast all day and I was so happy to have it for lunch. This unassuming place was recommended by a local and boy were they right. The neighborhood was a little sketchy but no-one bothered us at all. This place is first come first serve and the line at noon was long but went quickly. It seem to be a favorite of local and people lucky enough to find it. We went twice even though our hotel offered free breakfast.

“Delicious Food Found By Accident”
Reviewed 25 August 2016

My mom and I found this place by accident and we were not dissappointed. Definitely one of the best breakfasts I've ever had and the coffee was great too (nothing worse than bad coffee at breakfast!) Service was great too and they had some special on where if you come by before a certain time, you get two meals for the price of one!
