Good all around breakfast
By cocoeater of vancouver (323 Reviews)
Submitted Thursday, February 26, 2009 - 9:42am [Dine in]

Nice that you can find an all day breakfast place. Tried their corn beef hash. Hash was the 'out of the can' type you buy from the store so that was just OK. Nice mix with pototoes, onions and peppers. The eggs came poached all the way as I prefer it to be runny. Will ask for that next time. For around $9, not bad value. The burgers looked good for next time. Service was decent, you pay and they deliver your food at the table. Cafe type of atmosphere.

Breakfast are filling.

I have eaten here many times, and been back since they renovated their location.

I've only had their breakfast from their light & fluffy Pancakes, french toast to scramble eggs & hash brown with toast. This place is popular, busy on the weekends, and serves breakfast all day, when you want to have a late start to your day. Its not expensive, there's plenty of coffee to choose from at the counter, and the staff is friendly.

If you're looking for a place to start your day, that will fill you up, & won't break your bank, then check this location out.

I will be back.

the BIG breakfast
By chasiubow of North Van (675 Reviews)
Submitted Saturday, May 17, 2008 - 4:04pm [Dine in]

Mrs. C and I were wandering the North Shore looking for food and sun, when we spotted this place. It was super-packed, but looked inviting nonetheless. I snagged a table while my beloved dining companion lined up to order. You have to order at the counter, and then they give you a number on a stick. Shortly thereafter, a server arrives with plates of food. At least in theory…

The kitchen was a little backed up, so we got some self-serve coffee (they have 3 kinds) and waited. After a long, but in the circumstances understandable wait, we got gigantic plates of food. I had a western omelette with pancakes and home fries. Mrs. C. had eggs and ham with pancakes. All the food was tasty, and the pancakes were especially fluffy.

The servers were doing their best to keep up with the crowds, and they seemed cheerful despite the stress. The ambiance is pleasant enough, and the place was very clean.

Overall a good breakfast spot and a definite candidate for a repeat visit.

Recommended.

Rude Service
By miss.oei of North Vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Monday, July 25, 2011 - 11:52am [Dine in]

I have been coming to Moodyville's for several years. I live only a few blocks away and it is a very convenient and affordable place for all day breakfast. I have never found the service to exceptional, but it is not necessarily the type of place I go for the service anyhow. It is a quick and dirty type of greasy spoon where you order and pay at the counter, the food comes to the table, you eat and leave. And I like this about Moodyville's. However, having worked in the service industry for many a year, I can't ignore when service is just downright BAD!

This morning I went with my father and was greeted with a gal full of attitude who was literally stomping around the restaurant, banging chairs while clearing tables and throwing people's food down in front of them with a scowl. Now, I don't mind a hipster vibe to a restaurant where the staff are just too mellow to make a big deal over you. It's not my favourite, but I'll endure it to avoid over-zealous servers with disingenuous smiles and squeaky over-the-top voices hovering over my every bite and trying oh-so-hard to please me. But seriously - rude is rude! We all have bad days, but if one can't manage a certain level of professional demeanor in order to not make a customer feel uncomfortable just sitting and eating their food, then this is the wrong job for you. If you hate people, don't work in the service industry!

Great little place for breakfast
By sailorgirl83 of North vancouver (3 Reviews)
Submitted Saturday, March 26, 2011 - 12:15pm [Dine in]

Cute little diner, good coffee, usually packed and a bit too small. A bit slow to get your order, but worth the wait. All organic good quality food and not greasy. Good food, friendly staff, reasonable prices. One of the better breakfast places for breakfast/lunch in the lonsdale quay area!

The best Blueberry panckakes
By collie of west vancouver (2 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, April 5, 2009 - 10:14am [Dine in]

We are addicted to the blueberry pancakes, so this is the limit of our experience of the menu and of course the coffee.
The pancakes are generously sized, so the regular order is sufficient for most appetites. The number of blueberries per pancake is outstanding.
The patrons need to follow the signs to order before taking a seat.
It works out better for the flow of food from the kitchen.
It is a very down home atmosphere but the atmosphere is light due to the windows on two sides of the restaurant. It is within walking distance to the North Vancouver waterfront.
There are a few outdoor tables which is great on a nice day.
The staff are friendly and it is excellent value.
Almost hate to share the "secret" as they can be busy enough on the weekends.

Will not return.
By bubdob of north vancouver BC (1 Review)
Submitted Tuesday, January 24, 2012 - 8:29pm [Dine in]

I used to find myself at this place often. Something has surely happened with the management as of the last few months. The food is mediocre, a greasy spoon such place. Nevertheless, I would eat here due to convenience. The staff on the weekends over turn as fast as the customers to walk through there, leaving the rest of the people to treat the customers as garbage. Leave this breakfast place out of your weekend, you surely wont miss anything except mistreatment by the staff and maybe a blocked artery.

Used to be our favorite b-fast place
By T_Vittle of North vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Saturday, December 25, 2010 - 12:37pm [Dine in]

Every Monday morning we used to go into moodyvilles for breakfast. We moved to the city a couple years ago from a rural area with lots of fresh produce and local cafes and thus when we found a place that reminded us of home we were so happy. The big plus for us was that they had farm fresh eggs with a rich dark yolk and not the generic grocery store light yellow factory farm eggs. The last few times however the service seems to have degraded and they no longer have the good eggs, not only that the last two times the food was undercooked and very bland. It's a shame to see a good place changing for the worse and we don't think we'll be continuing our patronage. Before i recommended moodyvilles to anyone that wanted a good breakfast, now i think we'll search for a new place for a good breakfast.

Worst Experience Ever....
By LiamO of north vancouver BC (2 Reviews)
Submitted Thursday, November 11, 2010 - 2:09pm [Dine in]

I am a regular customer here, I have always been treated well. Today was the worst experience ever...

I strolled in for my weekly visit and it was busy. I found a table that was vacated and helped the staff by clearing the dishes that were left behind. I placed my belonging at the table and proceeded to the counter to order. When I got up to order I was asked to remove my items from the table until AFTER I had ordered. As I moved my things, my table was taken by 2 other people.

There were no tables open and I was unable to enjoy a nice visit to my neighbourhood breakfast spot.

I live 1 block away and have always been a regular, loyal customer, but I will never return here or recommend it again.

Best Sunday Breaky
By triplejjj031 of Vancouver (4 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, October 10, 2010 - 8:24pm [Dine in]

I usually go here on the weekends, usually on a Sunday or a Saturday, after a long night out partying, and I got to say it is the prefect place to go when your hungover. They got the best breakfast with big portions and great taste. It is usually packed busy, and for a good reason. So if you are ever in the area during the morning check this place out.

yet another good brunch
By paprika of North Vancouver (5 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, May 28, 2008 - 4:56pm [Dine in]

I love this place.
My husband and I have been there regularly for couple of years. We always have good food and pleasant service. This place is small, often people have to wait for tables on the weekend. But weekdays are not so busy. We went there this Wed morning around 11am, we noticed there were couple of tables outside. Despite of the noise fr the road construction at that intersection, the tables were gone before we could get it. We ordered corn beef harsh and veggie harsh, plus self sever style coffee, the bill came to just under $20. You pay upfront like you do at a coffe shop.
Our meals came with multigrain toast(there is sourdough toast too), harsh, 2 poached eggs, veggie for me and corn beef for him. Very generous servings. I couldn't finish my plate even I was hungry when I got there.
I noticed there were people doing take out.
I've had their pancakes too, and enjoyed them. They also have sandwiches and soup. But so far, we only tried their breakfast. Every things we ordered was delicious.
What a little gem.
