We recently visited Medina for breakfast - amazing! Great food, coffee and service. We lined up about 8.45am (15 mins before open on a Saturday) and were able to order fairly quickly. Medina is a must do when in Vancouver !!!

Loved everything from the service to the food and coffee. An excellent place to meet with friends or go alone. We sat at the bar and had perfect service. Not overbearing and provided great recommendations. Coffee had the ideal intensity. Will be back again soon!
