One of the smaller places, I like the fact they can serve coffee in mugs and cups instead of only paper cups. A small gift shop is also part of the place!

Perfect stop for a quick lunch before shopping in Vancouver! Paninis and pasta were both delicious, with kind and courteous service to boot! I recommend sharing a few small pasta bowls and a pizza if visiting in a group.

Came here for Sunday brunch yesterday as we're staying at the Fairmont Pacific Rim and knew they offered great breakfast choices here, so thought we would give them a try for brunch.

Interesting brunch dishes - very well done. Cosy and non-pretentipus despite being in a world class hotel. Eggs benny variations that are unique but not weird and well executed. Our group enjoyed soup, pizza and grilled cheese- all good. It's higher than average price but I'd recommend for a reliable city meet-up.

Went in the early evening after work with friends. Not too busy so seating was not a problem. Order was delivered quickly to the table after ordering at the counter. Delicious flavors to sandwiches and pasta. Meatball panini was really good - even if it was more like a regular sandwich (how do you squish the meatball in the press?)!

Delicious breakfast options with quality ingredients. Had the eggs benedict, $19, so although not the cheapest definitely worth a visit if you want a decent breakfast during your stay in Vancouver

On a chilly evening, this place was just right for a warm drink and a quick bite to eat. We shared a carrot cake, which was lovely, not too sweet. It's definitely a "share" item though!

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
