Make this a stop for breakfast or brunch if you're in the area. The food is super delicious and will be visiting when back in the city. I was very surprised at the quality and quantity. Top notch.

Kitsilano is one of Vancouver's most transformative
neighbourhoods. With a long history of coffee culture
and poetry readings, its days of flower children and
buskers may be long-gone, but not without leaving
