The restaurant is busy and well laid out. The service is good but the food is better. The waffles are amazing! The breakfast in and iron skillet is really a hearty meal so enjoy it.

Unique place to have breakfast or brunch. The dishes are tasteful. The coffee was amazing. Waffles are tasty as well. The only bad thing was the juice. But the staff are superb and make the best to accommodate you and make your experience excellent.

Went there for breakfast the day we were leaving Vancouver. Should have thought ahead and put our names in early. Nevertheless, the wonderful hostess got us into bar seats in about a 30 minute wait (this is on Monday, around 10 a.m.). It was worth...More
