Was recommended this place and it didn't disappoint. We had to wait about 10mins to get a table but once inside it was brilliant. I had breakfast poutine and my wife had eggs benny and both were brilliant

This place was a gem! Meatloaf wellington was out of this world and the turkey cranberry sandwich is a must try!

a great place to meet in a casual atmosphere with rad servers--not in too much of a rush to take a moment and ask you how your day was...good vegetarian and vegan comfort food--and carnivores can eat there too!

Had the Chorizo Carbonara. Absolutely loved it. Not too creamy or rich, right amount of meat. Could have had a touch more pasta on the plate but that's just preference, it wasn't necessary. Servers were fast and proactive. Had heard the reviews for years but only finally made it. Will definitely come back

This place serves a variety of wholesome dishes and snacks, including vegan and vegetarian. It has a nice atmosphere and seems to be liked by the locals. It is very good value and the dishes are good quality. The wine list is limited but reasonably priced. Different!

We grabbed a quick lunch here to meet up with an old friend before heading to the airport and it was probably the best meal of what felt like an ethic food marathon through Vancouver. I had the curry pocket which was a whole wheat, light and tender pastry stuffed with vegan filling w/ a fresh salad accompaniment. It was... More

We had an amazing brunch meal here. I loved that even breakfast options are served with a green salad. Plenty of gluten free options which is important to me having celiac disease. The eggs Benny was amazing!!

My vegan daughter selected the Wallflower because their menu has options for everyone from vegan to carnivore. It was a terrific choice. All the dishes were tasty, the servings were generous, and the service was very efficient. If you plan to go on a weekend, make a reservation. If you have a party of more than two, you could be...

Neighbourhood Profile
South Main
South Main, or SoMa, is a neighbourhood in upswing. Inhabited by young humanitarian professionals in converted lofts and studio apartments, what was once an industrial centre is now a wellspring of vintage and eco fashion shops, contemporary sawdust-floor galleries, craft beer joints, and basement acting studios. All set to an Art Deco background with a strong blue collar sensibility underpinning each new pop-up and foodie trend, SoMa is on the rise.
