Wonderful little gem of a restaurant tucked away in Felida (NW Vancouver). Smoked shrimp and corn chowder soup was tasty with a hint of bacon, but the tomato bisque soup was outrageously rich and delicious! The side of flatbread with caramelized onions, cheese, heirloom tomatoes,...More

The patio is shaded in the afternoon, so its an excellent place to enjoy Happy Hour. The seating is picnic tables so there's a spot for couples or families. The bartender is creative with his cocktails. Prices are fair and the menu interesting.
