Cafe Crepe2861 Granville St, Vancouver
A surprisingly good breakfast
Submitted Saturday, May 22, 2010 - 11:11pm [Dine in]

I've been a regular of Cafe Crepe for a quick lunch, but recently tried their breakfasts. For less than $10, you get 3 eggs (omega 3), bacon or sausage and a crepe (I tried apple sauce and it was lovely) and they have always had good coffee. For South Granville, it's also a treat that they open at 8 am, so if you're hungry early, you don't need to wait until 9:00 for the other neighborhood joints. They could improve their hashbrowns, which were the shredded type, but overdone.

Khai Thai Cuisine2020 Oxford Connector, #203, Port Coquitlam
Surprise dinner from a walk-by
Submitted Saturday, May 22, 2010 - 11:06pm [Dine in]

I was looking for a casual dinner place after attending an event at the Centre for Performing Arts. Khai had lovely ambiance and I'll remember to go back in dreary rainy months. The food and service were very good. The spring rolls had fresh cabbage, not mushy and are some of the best I've had in some time. The chicken, peppers and cashew dish was also fresh and flavourful.

Sablefish!
Submitted Friday, August 21, 2009 - 1:37am [Dine in]

Skip the menu (which makes it hard to order for sure), unless you like reading and simply order the sablefish! Stunning flavour in a light broth and it would be overly rude to have declared "Mmmmmm!" one more time at a high volume, while making my tablemates take small samples of this wonderful dish.

Go for the mussels!
Submitted Friday, August 21, 2009 - 1:28am [Dine in]

I must admit that I prefer the sublime fish at both Market and the Five Sails, but the food here is very decent combined with the fabulous ambience. But I must recommend that you go and share the mussels to start! They were simply fabulous...fresh, huge, perfectly prepared and with a lovely tomato-based sauce. Fresh baked bread would put this over the top, but it's a must if you are in West Vancouver and are looking for a mid-afternoon snack or a wonderful starter to your meal.

Treat yourself and be a tourist!
Submitted Friday, August 21, 2009 - 1:18am [Dine in]

I often forget about the Five Sails and each time I visit, it tends to be full of hotel guests and tourists having a nice meal. But, our recent visit was just outstanding and left me wondering why locals don't line up in droves for this sensational food.

Four of us dined on a beautiful August evening with stunning views. But the gorgeous food betters the view and the flavours and preparation are simply top-notch. I gasped at the fantastic sablefish chowder, the arctic char, salmon and fresh catch were done to perfection and I almost fell off my chair when I tasted the basil infused sorbet atop a poached peach!

One of the best values in town must be their summer sampler menu and although the two women at our table wanted to take pictures of each dish before we ate it, the men were more than happy with the ample portions, as not everything was served in a spoon.

If you have something to celebrate or just feel like a divine meal that would take hours and hours to prepare, plus excellent and professional service, go treat yourself!

Once you get past the sticker shock, your mouth will be in heaven!
Submitted Sunday, October 26, 2008 - 3:47pm [Dine in]

I was there on a Tuesday evening and it was very quiet, but we had amazing service from very knowledgeable French servers. The amuse bouche were lovely, as was the entire meal; fantastic flavours, organic or local ingredients, unique combinations, decent serving sizes and excellent pacing. Well worth a visit, but to save cash for the expensive mains, skip dessert. The dessert was the only thing that wasn't spectacular and they brought excellent chocolates with the bill. If this had been served at home, you'd immediately wander to your living room, grab and scotch and sit back and appreciate the finer things in life.

Mango Prawns! Awesome!
Submitted Sunday, October 26, 2008 - 3:36pm [Dine in]

I had the Mango Prawns as a special, but believe it's been added to the menu. Spectacular dish and worth a visit just for that. So many restaurants overly use sugar, but this dish lets the mango and red peppers do most of the sweetening. Also very enjoyed the rice dishes, casual atmosphere and feeling of an oasis from the everyday grind. The servers are knowledgeable, explain ingredients well and can make complementary suggestions. Best with at least 3-4 people, so you can sample more dishes.

Caffe Barney2528 Main St, Vancouver
Great for brunch
Submitted Sunday, October 26, 2008 - 3:28pm [Dine in]

I'm a regular at the Granville location, so just checked this out this weekend. The food is the great standard I've come to expect and the service was excellent. One day I'll venture beyond the Benny's, but they are so damn good! A nice change from Granville is that the ambiance was quieter, more upscale and not playing overly loud music, which can be hard to take on a weekend morning. Plus, a very friendly and prompt "yes!" to a request for water, which some places kind of roll their eyes at. Well done!

Caffe Barney2975 Granville Street, Vancouver
Losing it's muster
Submitted Sunday, October 26, 2008 - 3:20pm [Dine in]

This could be a coinidence, but ever since the additional Caffe Barney opened on Main, the Granville service has gone seriously downhill. Many new servers, work slower, seem more interested in chatting with each other (or looking cute in a hat) than working and really don't seem to care. I'm a local who goes frequently for the good food (great Benedicts), but they could reduce their line-ups by simply having better trained and managed staff. Still worth a visit, but get your coffee next door, as it is the same owner. Coffee has also gone downhill and often tastes like they used the grounds twice to make a pot...weak coffee doesn't win friends!
