good coffee
Submitted Wednesday, January 20, 2010 - 11:10pm [Dine in]

With sleuth of competing chain cafes popping up in every corner, it is absurd that finding a satisfying taste in those cups that contains more than a just jitter is a such a difficult task. But for a chain coffee shop, Sciue knows how to pull a good espresso shots that is full of aroma and strong body.

Also famed are their pizzas. Price can be very steep. Customers are asked to pay by the weight, and making selection can be like visiting your butcher. You choose, point, they glance to ask, cut and weigh. It's a definite splurge for delightful lunch or some pizza are light in taste enough to be a brunch. Ingredients are fresh, crusts are more thinner than your average idea of pizza, and the melodies of flavour(though it's only a pizza) is sophisticated enough to demand more bucks for it's name.

Dessert in comparison is very disappointing. With espresso's such richness and simple, cleanliness of pizza, dessert falls flat. It tastes as a regular super market dessert full of sugar, period. It would be nice for the place to pay as much attention and detail in making their own dessert but I suspect that it is indeed external bought.

It may be that it is not my usual crowd, but the place is typical of Yaletown ambiance. It is clean, bright, well designed. The description is not to be demeaning, but to be more factual or creating awareness for future visits made by others. It is different from your neighborhood starbucks.(as for some food and coffee).

Service is neither warm nor hostile. Rather, the perfect description would be 'professional'. There may be a smile here or there, but so far visits remain such. Is it worth a visit? For one of those afternoons when you are seeking some comfort taste of a complex espressos or to spoil your taste bud while fooling your mind('it's ok, it's just a pizza'), Sciue is a proven to be an answer to it all.

Not the place to order a salad
Submitted Thursday, December 4, 2008 - 9:08pm [Dine in]

Well, knowing the restaurant's name that is.. But none the less, on a first visit when some friends and I have ordered the salad they came flat and with some concern, warm. Vegetables seemed like they were on a brink of turning bad. On my second visit I've ordered a gumbo and once again food came warm, not hot like I would expect hot food to be. On a plus side, the place has a good price for a tab. It's a good place for hangout with friends to play pool and have some drinks. But to dine out? Bit of a waste.

Best coffee in town!
Submitted Thursday, December 4, 2008 - 8:49pm [Dine in]

Probably the best coffee in town for me. Must try is Spanish latte made with thicker, creamy condensed milk. It was a sweetness that is not overwhelming like sugar makes lattes. Only thing that makes me sad about this place is that it's ALWAYS busy. If you're looking for a quick-to-go coffee, this wouldn't be a place. You can almost always expect the long line up, the noise and full tables. But that only goes to show how popular demand for their coffee.

Lack of customers should've said something.
Submitted Wednesday, January 9, 2008 - 11:50am [Dine in]

First, notice how lot of good review of this place has been about year ago. In a year lot can happen, and I'm guessing maybe they have had a change of the cook in the restaurant. It was huge dissapointment for both me and my friend. Our meat were too dry, rice had no flavours, and it was served with side of ketchup(and I believe it was there to make up for the lack of flavour and juice). After our disappointing meal, we decided not to even bother to try their varied vodka selections or dessert for that matter.
On top of all the disappointment, I believe someone in the kitchen might have been sick when they were cooking(of course there is no way to know for sure). But my friend and I were both feeling sick with same symptoms(possibley of 24 hour flu) of fever, muscle ache etc. I would not recommend this place to anyone.
Also lot of prices on the website were wrong and needs some update. They seemed to have raised their price.
