Kafka's Coffee and Tea2525 Main St, Vancouver
Too many OTHER Awesome coffee shops on Main Street.
Submitted Wednesday, October 26, 2011 - 6:13pm [Dine in]

Main street means coffee shops to me. So I am always surprised when I encounter terrible service in such a competitive market. I normally frequent other coffee shops in the area but decided to try Kafka's after walking by today.

Honestly I cant complain about the coffee, hand poured coffee is away tasty and the raspberry hazelnut torte was mediocre. But the service was AWFUL. Now thats fine if you don't want to make small talk at the register but there is no need to roll your eyes and be rude. I'm not trying to offend you when I ask for a receipt. I wont come back don't worry! Main street is full of awesome coffee shops with better food and better service!

Decided to check out the Kings Head a few Fridays ago after walking by and hearing the live music. The band playing that night was AWESOME (the server told us it was their house band). I was actually surprised at how good these guys were. They played both covers and originals and even rocked a violin for a few songs- very impressed.

Both my boyfriend and I ate and while it was definitely not gourmet food- for a pub it was surprisingly good. I had the veggie pesto flatbread and he had fish and chips. Would totally order both of these things again. While the food was good the drink prices were the highlight of the meal. Seriously - I've been a regular at the local for a while and I had no idea the Kings Heads beer was so much cheaper!!

As for service, our server was super friendly. Can't remember her name- but she was wearing giant feather earrings. She seems to always be working as I always see her around the Kings Head/Yew street a lot since then. She was super helpful with all of our questions about beers and even offered us samples of the drafts on special.

Overall- I had a surprisingly good time at the Kings Head. Cheap beer. Great Service. OK Food. Will totally go back on a Friday to see the house band again!
