We’ve been before and were not surprised when there was a wait to be seated. When our turn came we were offered 2 seats at the bar, which was fine. Our server was the bartender, who was friendly and keen, but may have been trying...More

Great atmosphere and really, really good food. We showed up about 20 minutes before they opened and were surprised to see a line already running down the block. We got in line and were seated as soon as they opened. Some people that got there...More

Clean hygenic and fresh food. Excellent menu and great choices for Even vegetarians and vegans. Good place to relax and hang out with great coffee and waffles. Mostly breakfast and lunch. Closed for dinner. Very central. Parking could be an issue.

We found this place online before we left Australia and are so glad we came. The waiting time to get in was only about 10 minutes but we were happy that we waited as the food, staff and the atmosphere was perfect.

For all the hype on this place, I would think the dishes would be beyond great. While still tasty, they were not necessarily something I would wait 30 minutes for again. Also, staff are a little hurried which does not help.

Went for a late breakfast during our stay in Vancouver. Food was very good and service too. Waffles were good but I`ve had better. Would go back if I return toVancouver one day.

For Saturday or Sunday brunch you'll wait at least 45 minutes to over an hour. Perhaps longer. The food and coffee is quite good though. I'm not super keen on their waffles (they make them in advance and reheat). Drinks are a tad overpriced. Service...More

We were expecting to wait in a " physical line" but we're told to come back in 90 minutes, which worked. Everything on the menu looked great and was fairly priced. We were their for Sunday-Brunch so had Paella & La Sante both delicious. Cappuccino...More

Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is

Agree with what everyone else has said AND a couple of things to add. The place is very VERY popular (especially moreso on weekends) and sometimes there can be a substantial wait to get a seat (especially if there's a big... More
