You will find some conventional foods with different style and taste here. Some are fantastic and some are not, but worth to try. Completely noisy and crowded, and staff are in hurry.

Exquisite delicious small liege type waffles with a variety of toppings! Not to be missed. Tea and chai latte both nicely prepared. The fricassa and sandwich au porc were good but a tad too salty. Busy location, but service and waffles definitely worth a visit.

We visited for a late breakfast at about 9:30 on a Tuesday morning. The wait was less than 10 minutes. We were just two; larger parties will likely have longer waits. The coffee set the tone for excellence. I like it strong and black. It...More

A little get away brunch during the weekend. Enjoyed Fricassee, each bite after each bite wanting more. Ended the meal with their popular liege-style waffles - ordered 4 (don't judge) tried salted caramel and dark chocolate and ICE CREAM. Perfect with americano! ENJOY LIFE!

Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is
bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their

Agree with what everyone else has said AND a couple of things to add. The place is very VERY popular (especially moreso on weekends) and sometimes there can be a substantial wait to get a seat (especially if there's a big... More
