I've been coming to Bon's - and whatever it was called prior to that for some decades...I'm confident they haven't updated the artwork or the bathrooms since Trudeau Senior was PM, but that is part of what makes the place so cool As another reviewer has opined, it is indeed eclectic...I will go with earthy. It looks like a skid... More

It's an experience! packed. graffiti all over. We've only been there for breakfast when we want cheap and plain. They take your order and bring it. Beyond that, help yourself to coffee refills and water. You don't go there for class, chic dishes or culinary adventures. Eggs, toast, home fries...plain, straight up breakfast. People watching can be interesting. Oh, and... More

Wife had two eggs done to perfection, ham, mound of hash browns and two pieces of toast. portions are very generous. I also had two large pancakes, twelve inches across for $4.00. Coffee $1.00 a cup. I am not a... More

I used to eat here for the $2.95 breakfast 25 years ago. It used to be a nexus for artisans and university students. A quarter of a century later the breakfasts are still $2.95 (Wow!) and it has a more punk-rock skater feel about it but it is still a great greasy spoon. Come for great food, fast service, to...

Bon's is a place which definitely has a style. It is young in character, lots of tattoos on the servers and the walls are yellow with a plethora of graffiti..in fact there is graffiti on everything. And it's fantastic. the place has energy, life and colour...quite the novelty. And the food is good. We have two breakfasts and coffee for... More

Greasy spoon with real character. The world needs more places like this. You can eat for not a lot of money and take in the East Van charm.
