Thank you Helen. Your tip about letting us know to go easy on salt if that is a preference is a great one. We are happy to do this for any guest. I hope you do find an excuse to return soon.

Passing by on the street one would never know what a wonderful "farm to table' restaurant lies within. A wonderful server and a sommelier helped us make the right choices for our meal.

Kitsilano
Kitsilano is one of Vancouver's most transformative
neighbourhoods. With a long history of coffee culture
