I went with a group of women and we started with wine (excellent) and several appetisers to share. I had a couple of bites of each, then a salad for the entre. I was sick all the next day. I don't know if it was msg, or bad oil or what, but considering the general discomfort of the place -... More

I've spent months in Vancouver for work and play and this place is the favorite breakfast joint for me and my crew. We think about it when it isn't around and always make sure to go more often than not when in town.

Although the food is quite good here, I have yet to visit where we aren't staring at empty tables that the staff eventually clean or they take payment from clientele who have waited painfully to pay!!! It could be SO much better! To bad....

We went to the West 7th Ave. location for brunch. This is a very cozy spot. Great atmosphere and service. We had to wait for a table, but not that long, considering how popular this place is. I would definitely come back to try another item on the breakfast menu: Shakshouka. There were a lot of other delicious looking dishes... More

with a buddy for breakfast - he had the ham & cheese omelet, and I had the regular bacon & egg breakfast (with the chorizo sausage). Great chorizo. Potatoes a little bland but everything fresh, hot and well presented.

This place serves diner-style brunch and other meals with many different choices of eggs and sandwiches. Even though some of the options sound a little unhealthy they are actually not too greasy. The portion sizes are also quite appropriate too. I would certainly recommend this place. There's also a fun eclectic feel to the atmosphere.

This is a delightful little breakfast/brunch/lunch/...? place, with a fine selection of tasty and inventive concoctions of eggs, meats, veggies, sauces and fruits. The coffee is good and the service is as good as one highly competent & friendly server can make it with folks lined up out the door waiting to be seated. Go earlier or later that everyone... More

We are a classic American style dinner with a chefs twist on the traditional comfort food. A nod toward Southern comfort food, an eclectic breakfast menu,a counter culture dinner. A spacious back room overlooking a park. A postcard picture view of the sunset. Truly something for everyone.

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.
