My wife and I enjoyed brunch here. The food is very well presented! I got the fried chicken and waffles and my wife got the fried chicken and French toast. It was pretty good and very filling! The chicken could have been better. I think...More

I was tempted to make my friends go to Chambar which is two doors away and had no line up but I am glad we waited the hour to get in because it was worth it. I ordered a reuben sandwich with the salad instead...More

I was excited when Jam was opening in Vancouver because I am from Victoria and missed going to Jam. The food is definitely worth the wait; however, you can be waiting for 1+ hours. Go on a weekday or get there early enough to be...More

I’m very disappointed with Jam. I’ve seen the line ups, was looking forward to having dome time to indulge. I did have time with a friend today. We were seated on top of our neighbouring patrons, with no place or offering to take our coats....More

My apologies your visit did not meet your expectations. Regarding refills on the coffee it is in fact a bottomless cup and we never charge for refills. Please bring in you receipt and I'll reimburse you for any extra charges you might have incurred.

I tend to avoid these kind of places normally. Not because they are bad, but mostly because the portion sizes are huge and the food so delicious that I can’t keep myself from eating too much. There’s options of giant piles of French toast or...More

We arrived shortly after 9am to beat the queue - but still had a 50 minute wait! The staff were attentive to the line and probably one of the most attentive wait staff I’ve come across. We had the bacon eggs benedict and the fried...More

A short wait today was well worth it. Delicious eggs Benedict blackstone and the Oldtown Breakfast was fabulous too. The sugar-cured bacon is to die for. Service was very attentive and friendly. Lots of tourists but then again, that’s what we are. The atmosphere and...More

A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and
stepping into a bygone era. With the distinction of
being Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, the many
plaques that stud the cobbled streets of Gastown tell
the story of its colorful past, giving Vancouver's
history a more lively presence here than anywhere
else. Having been originally founded around a popular
worker's saloon, it's no wonder that today some of
