It has one of the most extensive menu choices compared to other Hong Kong Style restaurants. Very tasty meals but you will get thirsty after. Best russian borscht soup in Greater Vancouver.

Have been to this cafe many times for breakfast on weekends. The food is ok, price is reasonable...they do charge extras if you start changing the items. Depending on your expectations, the service may not be up to par, but definitely much better than what you get in a typical cafe in Hong Kong.

The wait staff was very friendly and helpful. However, I wish they had cautioned us that we ordered far too much food - 3 of us ordered enough food for at least 8-10 people! The entrees should definitely be shared by 2-3 people. That said, it was very tasty, great pricing and a friendly and welcoming environment. We would definitely... More

Copa Cafe does set meals, with a soup, main dish and a Hong Kong style tea or coffee. The portions are of good size. I always have the baked pork chop with rice. Its good for quick cheap eats.

3 of us went in for lunch on the weekend. We each order our own meal. We asked to have the drinks deliver after our meal. The server came back with our drinks right away. He came back and asked us “you ordered 2 order of something and repeat them. We should be clued in that he made a mistake.... More

This is about the Cambie location (there is another one in Richmond). It was the worst restaurant we ever went to in Lower Mainland. The beef dish I ordered smelled rancid even before it was laid on the table, and the meat tasted like many days left over. We tried to be tactful when we asked the server was it... More

We order med their lunch set. Their potion is big. Their service is kind of bad. They are kind of rude. It feels cleaner than average Hodgkin cafe style restaurants.

I always try to find something nice to say about a place. The bathrooms weren't ever clean here. I like to explore new places to eat in different countries. Saw this place on our way to our hotel, and stopped in. I liked the fact that I was the only white person here, so I knew the food would be... More

...considering Glouchester 5 min away, which offers better selection and more atmosphere. Nevertheless, it's good for cheap Chinese breakfast, and a quieter time. Free parking in the back.

Staying in Shaughnessy

Neighbourhood Profile
Residential neighbourhood to the ultra-wealthy, the gorgeous manor houses centred around The Crescent area are a fabled sight to behold. Shaughnessy is Vancouver's most verdant plotted neighbourhood, and its tree-lined streets, walking routes, bike trails, and charming public parks make for an ideal location to spend and afternoon communing with nature. Consequently, it is also the botanical centre of the city, featuring conservatories and an expansive Botanical Garden, taming and sculpting the wild into seasonal viewing areas and enchanting landscapes. Quiet, elegant Shaughnessy excels at providing the Three Gs: Gardens, Golfing, and Galleries.
