Discovered this gem while walking around Gastown in Vancouver. The sandwiches were quite unique in taste and construction. It was quite a find. A himlthough the restaurant is quite small, the atmosphere is conducive to a very enjoyable meal.

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!

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.

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
the story of its colorful past, giving Vancouver's
