Coming Home Cafe is a cafe-bistro, serving coffee, tea, fresh, homestyle food and relaxed, comfortable atmosphere.
This is a cute, comfortable, clean, gay owned and operated joint. They make a great coffee and I’ve had weekend breakfast there many times. First time I went there I had the Eggs Benny, and it’s all I’ve had since. It’s awesome!
The prices can be pricey if you get a latte-type coffee and breakfast and add on hash browns or other sides. The first time we ate there our eyes bugged out at the bill. But, we return again and again because we like it so much.
This is home-style café, where you can watch your breakfast getting made and you get your own accoutrements.
Service there can be awesome. My only compliant about the service is that the owner (or one of the owners?) can get really, really long-winded and preachy about Pride when he is talking to people in line in front of you. I swear we once waited about 15 minutes at the till with money in hand while he went on and on and on. (Totally cool with him talking about Pride, but not when people are being held captive).
They are also cash only, which sucks period, and the hours posted on here are not correct because I think they are usually closed by three. I wish they would expand their hours, as I could easily see us going there to try a casual dinner menu.
I actually love this place, and can say it’s my number one choice for local breakfast.
My family wanted a weekend breakfast a neighbor had mentioned "coming home" we did not feel like ihop or the waffle house since ownership change...(yuk)
did we ever luck out at the "coming home"
we have a 20 month old and a four year old.
we ordered 2 poached eggs pancakes sausage bacon the kick ass coffee toast x 2
and also scrambled eggs and toast for the kids
when the order came which did not take long we were over the moon
besides no booster or high chairs for the kids (which they are working on so no worries)
it was a great time had by all at a reasonable price.
after we paid the tab the server gave my 2 kids kids freezies and they were huge!!
next weekend we are going for the eggs benny!!
this restaurant has a great atmosphere and is a welcome addition to new westminster
the competition is heating up and for new westminster thats a good thing!!
WARNING! this is not your average breakfast place it has mojo!!
Went here Saturday, April 23rd, for a 9:00 a.m. breakfast. Great time to arrive as my friend & I had the place to ourselves - a half hour later a steady stream of guests began to fill this eclectically decorated, approximately 6-table, eatery.
My friend & I ordered 2 menu items off the menu 'wall' (there were no menu cards). So that we could try each item, we were going to share. To our pleasant surprise, the cook/host served us each a plate of half a blueberry waffle and half an order of eggs benny. Presentation was beautiful, with attention to garnishing. Plus, the butter was already spread on the waffle and melted by the time the plate came to me, which is exactly how I like to eat a waffle. (I tipped very generously because of this.)
They offer something called a "BYOBreakfast". Its their way of inviting you to "Build Your Own Breakfast", without your doing any of the cooking yourself. They also offer gluten-free bread. Come here for breakfast or lunch (not open for dinner).
When I return, I plan to eat outside on the sidewalk patio. The cooking smells are quite strong - I had to change and take a shower after my visit. But compared to the neighbouring restaurants, the quality of the food, cooking, and presentation is outstanding and very competitively priced.
This little place is the little restaurant that could could could but just quite can't can't can't. Things looked up for a bit there. The place was ok but things have degraded this last while.
The quality of the food items has definitely dropped. It used to be top quality products and over time things seem to have taken a nose dive in quality.
Still they have great eggs benedict but only on weekends. I was there last Saturday and watched in amazement at the amount of oil the cook put in the pan to fry eggs. They could do the back stroke and the amount of times he handles the food with his hands instead of using utensils is cause for concern.
Conversely to the quality prices have gone up dramatically. One of my favorites the Breaky Sandwich has gone from 5.75 just a few months ago to 7.50 today a 30.4 % increase. Wow! All menu items have risen sharply as well and it seems the average bill is now 12 to 16 dollars depending on what is ordered.
There are plenty of dining options in New Westminster for less that you also have wait staff to serve you and you do not leave smelling of grease. There is no wait staff at Coming Home. They have priced themselves out of the stratosphere.
I just moved back to this nieghbourhood afar a 12 year absence. The day I moved in a friend who helped me move & I went looking for a place for a bite to eat and found this around the corner. We both had the basic breakfast, and loved it, especially the hash browns. I am not a big hash browns fan but these were brilliant. Since then I try to get over there once or twice a week (last week I was on hols and ended eating there 3 days in a row including having brekky & lunch in the same day)
When I go in I ask the owner Michael what is the special of the day, and that is what I have. It could be chilli, mac & cheese, chicken stew (last weeks lunch), and I have never been disappointed.
The coffee is very good also.
