At the New Westminster Quay -- just off the boardwalk, short walk from the market. Breakfast/early-lunch fare -- early-afternoon closing.
This isn't the cheapest breakfast around but the food is great and the staff very welcoming. Try the Dutch Pannekoek . There is usually a special. There are also waffles, Benny's and plain old Big breakfast for those who just want their Bacon and eggs.
It is at the Quay so you can enjoy the sun and walk along the boardwalk afterwards. It is a small restaurant not realy suitable for a big group -- 4 people max.. They also serve lunch, but we usually have the Dutch Breakfast Pannekoek.
They have a few tables outside which are nice on a sunny day.
In general, I like this place. Staff are always friendly and food is delicious. I love the coffee there! That being said, the prices on the menu have increased a few times since Angelina sold the restaurant to the new owner.
I would still go if it wasn't for the line-ups on the weekends. They don't take reservations... I hate waiting in line-ups for any longer than 10 minutes, so as a result I usually end up going to the De Dutch Pannekoek House instead. With the prices going up at Angelina's, it's pretty close to the prices at De Dutch, but without the line-ups.
We have probably not dined at Angelina's as often as we should have, but the experiences we have had, have been delights. Breakfast offerings range from typical Canadian-style "eggs, with", and the like, to wonderful pancakes, waffles, and other 'specialties of the house'. There's a good and varied menu, plus, 'specials of the day'.
Quality food, well-prepared, and good, friendly service. Just wish the restaurant had a view over-looking the Fraser River, but you can't have everything!!
I work close to here so I decided to drop in one day since I'd heard about this place from co-workers.
I ordered the apple-cinnamon pannekoek, cost a little under $15 with tax. I was expecting a big portion if I'm paying that kind of money for breakfast, but the pancakes weren't that big. Not to mention that it took a long time (20 minutes) for the food to come out, there weren't even that many people in the restaurant! Pretty sure they only have one, mayyybe two cooks working in the back, and I can only imagine what it's like when the place is full.
At least the lady serving me was nice (said she was one of the owners).
The decor is nice, and the view of the Fraser River is even better since the sun was out.
So the pancake tasted good, it came with whipped cream on the side. But I can't justify spending nearly $15 on a breakfast that didn't completely fill me up.
Went for brunch on a nice sunny Sunday. The place is cute and done up in blue and white. The service started out good, but quickly went to poor. We waited for an hour for our food and coffee refills were hard to come by.
The food was really good, but I guess I will try and come here when it first opens so that I'm not starving by the time I get my food.
We went for a nice walk on the Quay boardwalk afterwards, this restuarant is in a great location.
We like el cheapo breakfast on the weekends, but every once in awhile, you want something with a little bit of character, something not so greasy, and something right in your neighborhood. Angelina's offers an alternative to the Ihops and Whitespots that tend to dominate Sunday brunch in New West. They have excellent Pannekoek (as good as or better than DeDutch) and their family friendly atmosphere is awesome. You are always greeted with a smile and treated like you're special. They have good lunches too! We love it.
Although I do not frequent any restaurants these days i have had breakfast at Angelina's several times over the past 4.5 years. I enjoy it especially in the summer, outside, gazing at the river sitting in the sun with a cup of the good coffee. When sitting outside one can be forgotten but it is fine as the owners are such lovely people it does not mattter to me. I enjoy the poached eggs and potatoes and am very pleased on each occasion to have broken my fast there.
While not a cheap eatery...it is worth it. The lemon and brown sugar pannekoek is definitely tasty and my partner never passes up on the fresh fruit waffle. Service is great and always friendly.A great way to start the day when paired with a walk along the Quay. Beats the pants off De Dutch.
This is the perfect Sunday brunch place. I always expect to be there for two hours as the service is on the slow side but I don't mind at all as the coffee is great and refills keep coming. You can see the Fraser river from certain seats so it's a very pleasant wait. Just pick your company wisely as you'll be chatting for awhile.
The Dutch menu items are excellent and I consider the portions to be on the large side. I struggle to finish mine most times. I usually never have this issue.
Tried this place out one morning and while it doesn't look much from the out side, the welcome you get when you walk in the door is warm and friendly.
Love the food and Angelina remembers the people that come through her door" do you want decaf this time?" as i have often just come off night duty.
My husband and I love this place and is just a walk down the quay from where we live.
The photos on the walls are all local scenes taken by Angelinas husband and are great.
Warm, friendly and a great breakfast, then a walk along the quay beside the Fraser River, what a way to start the day.
