For our first meal in Vancouver, we went for brunch at this highly rated restaurant in Fairview. It only serves brunch on Saturdays from 11:30 am to 2:30pm. We didn’t make reservations (we weren’t sure if they even take reservations for brunch) so we arrived 30 minutes before it opened. People gradually showed up for brunch 10 minutes before they opened. Apparently, this place is quite popular.
The restaurant is quite small. It can get very crowded when it is fully packed with people. I love the ambience of this place- the homey feel and the vinyl oldies played in the background.
Both Kev and I weren’t very impressed with the food we ordered. First of all, the portion of the food is very small. With the pricing, I was expecting something bigger. Instead, the food is so little that I thought it is an appetizer. The dishes were unique and the ingredients were fresh, but the taste weren’t marvelous. Very ordinary I would say. We left disappointedly, hunting for more food in granville island to fill our stomach.
My review: It is like an all natural organic fruit bars- something that your hipster friends will highly recommend you to try, but if you’re not already into it, you’re going to be disappointed.
You should really go here for dinner…. order everything off the menu, and prepared to never have been so wrong about a restaurant.
I really wanted to give it another try. But now I’m back to Calgary… will have to wait till next time I visit Van 🙁
