As a local who would rather spend my $ locally I very much regularly enjoy Nicolelina's Cafe. The proprietors are warm, courtious, friendly and provide GOOD grub! This place is by far the best small to medium food joint in the 'hood! A mixture of local and exotic menu items and good coffee makes this the place to stop on your way to work or on your way home.

25 + years ago we were building homes & strata units in the Deep Cove neighbourhood. Weds, Thurs, Fri the boss always took us to the Raven for lunch (don't find that any more). It was close by but by no means the only place in town. We ALWAYS went back. We tried everything on the menu and in many cases spent the whole afternoon there. The food and service was great and as 'regulars' enjoyed many +'s. I would rate every aspect of food/service delivery as at least 4+ out of 5. After reading the reviews of late I am tempted to visit the Raven to 'compare' (then/now). I had the opportunity recently to visit a well known pizza parlor (in the Burnaby 'hood) a while back where I expressed my appreciation that after all these years (30+) the pizza was just how I first tried/loved it. Point is, if owners (multiple in some cases) would just keep a good recipe going, train the staff and provide a consistant atmosphere there would be CONSISTANT good reviews, assuming of course it was a top drawer business to start with. I have been to Deep Cove a few times over the the last few years and am amazed at the development. I hope an iconic member of the neighbourhood can and will flourish, it deserves to do so.
