“Very decent breakfast”
Reviewed 21 November 2016

We had breakfast here during a recent trip to Vancouver. First of all, I really loved the space, it was small but seemed light and airy somehow, and also had a bit of a vintage feel to it. They serve a really decent breakfast here, service was fantastic, the standout for me was a gluten free bread the server offered after I told her I didn't need toast. While it wasn't anything like sandwich bread, it was delicious. I've tried a large amount of gluten free products unfortunately, and I've never had anything this good. It was so good even people who don't have to avoid gluten would thoroughly enjoy it. It was sort of like a flat focaccia bread with a bit of cornbread qualities in the mix, and that doesn't even do it justice. I was especially impressed when I asked the server about it and she told me it was her grandmother's recipe, that was just a nice touch and made me feel there was some history to the place. Anyway, nice place to drop in for breakfast and we'd readily go back next time in Vancouver.

“Casual Diner”
Reviewed 6 November 2016

We had heard a lot about this place so decided to try it for lunch. The food is decent and simple. Truthfully, there is nothing offensive about it. Turkey sandwich had real turkey and comes with a load of potato chips and a broccoli slaw as an option. The thing that elevated it for me was the great cup of coffee, cakes, cookies and pies. Service is super friendly and really treats the people that live in the area well. Feel good about dining here as they support the community this business "lives" in.

“Wonderful Find”
Reviewed 17 October 2016

This old style café is in downtown Vancouver without having downtown prices. The food is excellent, service is efficient and friendly and the coffee is the best I have had in a restaurant for a long time.
