Pho heck yes!
Submitted Tuesday, October 4, 2011 - 4:51pm [Dine in]

Summary:
Definitely my favourite place to get pho in the city.

Experience:
I've been here on more than one occasion. Actually I come here way too often. I usually get my pho to go just as a personal preference to eat at home. If I wasn't always in sweats with messy hair, I would stay more because they serve an incredible house special artichoke-blend tea!

I absolutely love the "beef noodle soup" here. It tastes so clean and delicious! Everything I order here is always fresh and they never skimp on the basil. This eatery is my go-to place especially when Vancouver weather is like...well, Vancouver weather.

The only thing I'm not completely satisfied about is the "grilled sugarcane and shrimp roll". It's a bit of a disappointment as I was expecting something totally different. Oh well, they still make a killer "shrimp and pork salad roll" in my books!

Conclusion:
Keep it up, rock stars. You do things well and it keeps me coming back!

I bet a vegan made your sandwich.
Submitted Tuesday, October 4, 2011 - 4:35pm [Dine in]

Summary:
You are paying for convenience and a vegan to make your food.

Experience:
My friend and I went to grab a bite to eat right before a concert. I ordered the Sunshine wrap and he ordered a Spicy Chicken sandwich. The two orders took them about 10 minutes to put together, which we found odd since there was only 1 other table (already served) and 2 people in line behind us.

I found my Sunshine wrap to be quite delicious, although I did feel like I could've made it at home for cheaper. My friend took a bite of his sandwich and said "where's the chicken?" He, then, proceeded to open up his sandwich only to find that the chicken was thinner than the cashier who rung our order in. That's when I said to him "I bet a vegan made your sandwich".

Conclusion:
Next time I’m going to Nuba. I’d walk further and shell out for Nuba way before I come back to Chopped Leaf again; that is, if I do return at all.

Good, good, good.
Submitted Saturday, September 25, 2010 - 8:19pm [Dine in]

Summary:
Great food, great servers, and great place for breakfast.

Experience:
My best friend and I decided to meet there for a breakfast date last Monday. I was confused as to where the front door of the restaurant was; the sign was in front of the wrong door.

I was immediately greeted by a server. My friend had gone early so she flagged me to our table. Shortly, our server came and introduced their specials. My friend ordered a Lavender Latte and I was fine with water. Our server suggested the "Tagine" to me when I tried to order something off the lunch menu (yeah, it was early...I had not entirely woken up).

The Lavender Latte came and my friend commented to me how dark the foam looked. I smelt and sipped the drink and it did seem off (I used to work at Starbucks). Plus there was no Lavender in it. Our server came around and we told her about the too-bitter latte and she realized that there was no Lavender in it. My friend sipped it again after they had put the syrup in and commented that it still tastes wonky. The server made no fuss and promptly brought another one back for us. This one tasted amazing, just like how we had expected.

Then our food came and let me just say, I should've ordered a lighter meal for breakfast because Tagine was way too flavorful for my morning stomach. My delicious mistake, however. Then we had the waffles which were decent. My dark chocolate sauce was separating; the chocolate and the butter I'm guessing.

Conclusion:
Pleasant experience. Do not order such a heavy meal, delicious though, this early in the morning next time. Two thumbs up overall.

Cafe Crepe874 Granville Street, Vancouver
Just Horrible.
Submitted Saturday, September 25, 2010 - 7:48pm [Dine in]

Summary:
Waited 45 minutes for our food to come, food arrived cold, food arrived incorrect, indifferent and absent server.

Experience:
I used to go to this Cafe Crepe once a month with my boyfriend. We haven't gone for a long time since my boyfriend found out about his gluten allergy; we mostly eat at home.

This morning, however, we decided to go get some breakfast. Since he can't have any wheat items, we specified to our server for the multigrain toast to be put on a separate plate so I could have it. I also asked what the difference between their "Chai" and "Chai Latte" was. Good thing I asked too, as I do not do well with coffee. According to the server, Chai is just hot water and chai syrup; Chai Latte is chai syrup, hot milk, and a shot of espresso.

I used to work at Starbucks and although I did get the rare 'Chai Latte with a shot of espresso', it was not a standard drink. I ordered it, without the espresso shot.

We both ordered the two eggs with sausage and hash browns. We waited about 45 minutes for our food. And when the food finally came, they gave my boyfriend whole wheat toast on his plate. This was not multigrain on a separate plate. We were both annoyed as we ate our COLD food, keeping an eye out for the server to let her know their mistake. We finally flag her down and tell her, she says "I know, do you want me to tell the kitchen?". I was dumbfounded, why didn't she do anything to prevent this mistake if she knew? Anyway, she brought us the multigrain toast and asked if she could get me any jams or butter. I told her butter and she replies "the toast is already buttered". So I believe her and she leaves.

I don't know what their standard of buttering a toast is, but I was expecting something more than a pea-sized smear of butter in the centre of the toast. Obviously the kitchen was in a rush, or indifferent, or both.

So we walk up to the counter to pay our bill. My boyfriend tells a server that he has a debit card and she kept shrugging him off telling me to go to the bar to pay. We go to the bar and wait for our server...for 15 minutes. We were so close to just walking out. She came just before we decided to leave and said "3 people called in sick so it's really crazy" and handed us our bill. We did NOT tip. We barely wanted to pay for the disaster of a meal that ruined our morning.

Conclusion: New management is in order.
If they were so short-staffed, close the patio and focus on the in-diners. There were three servers with three busboys and two cooks for a 70-seat restaurant at 50% capacity. Cross-training, anyone?

Dine out...somewhere else
Submitted Tuesday, January 20, 2009 - 10:44pm [Dine in]

-short rib rigatoni was overly salty; we had to ask for bread (which they charged us for)
-GLT (gin, lemon, lime, rosemary, tonic) was too strong; they serve 2 oz...i would've preferred if they gave us a choice of 1 or 2 oz instead of having a 'policy'; drinks were $12 EACH
-house truffles for desert was decent; but personally i didn't like it
-server was very friendly
-jazz band was late
-kitchen staff were talking about personal, inappropriate things; we sat right in front of kitchen

overall, food and drink were not worth the prices...I don't plan on coming back
