This cafe is very close to my school, so I come here often. If you order food it would take about 10-15 minutes dependin com the day and what you order. But I come here often because of the great coffee and food!

This little place offers good small meals, like soup, bagels, pies and cakes. Service is fast and the place is inexpensive.

A small little eatery, with good fresh food. I had the omelette which came with a small side of potatoes and toast. Free wifi was a plus. Friendly staff.

Our initial plan was to eat in a more popular sandwich place in Gas Town, but it was closed for the holidays. So, since it was a nice sunny, albeit cold, winter’s day, we strolled along the area and stumbled on Bambo Café, a quaint...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
