Pane e Formaggio4532 West 10th Avenue, Vancouver
Finger-Sucking Good
Submitted Thursday, May 7, 2009 - 11:02am [Dine in]

Really good coffee and baked goods. Got rudely sniffed by the young barrista for asking him not to grab new cups with his fingers INSIDE the cup. Use the handle, otherwise it's like sucking your fingers! Nice patio, though a bit noisy from passing vehicles. Otherwise basically friendly service. Needs better monitoring from management to ensure sanitary practice is maintained. It seems a little lax in that area..

Rome Prices Chariot into Kitsilano
Submitted Sunday, March 22, 2009 - 5:19pm [Dine in]

Tasty food; good service. But almost fainted when I got a bill of $10 + tax for two poached eggs, two small pieces of toast and a small blob of mashed potatoes with a glass of water; no coffee or extras. I mean, really! At some fine dining place, sure. But at a Kitsilano cafe? $8 I could have dealt with. But $10 is just gouging, considering what the palce is..

Giuseppe's Bread and Deli, Da Vito3596 East Hastings Street, Vancouver
Italian Family Rules East Side Food Industry
Submitted Friday, February 27, 2009 - 5:32pm [Dine in]

Absolutely love this place. Mom cooks with fresh ingredients in a meticulously clean kitchen in the back, daughter behind the counter makes sandwiches and slings cappuccinos that will soothe even the worst rush hour temper, and pop, Vito, serves and charms customers in this down-to-earth restaurant and deli. We ate the Prima Vera Pasta and homemade meat loaf. Stupendous. Best to go at lunch when the place is packed with animated Italians. Sandwiches, soups, pastas, shopping and a breath of old-world air, all in a space no larger than my apartment. No attitude here. Just sincere people proud of what they do. 'Can't say enough about it.

Whoah!
Submitted Saturday, September 1, 2007 - 1:54pm [Dine in]

Ordered the Queen Charlotte halibut. Whoah! With the crabby leek. Aaah! The portions are small, though I somehow left satisfied. Wasn't the wine. I didn't want the meal to end it was so amazingly flavourful. Service was very good. A party of young had imbibed far too much near us. Their constant loudness really put a damper on the meal. I don't know why management felt their dining experience was worth more than ours. We felt very un-taken care of in that respect. But the food...!

Sushi with a smile
Submitted Saturday, February 10, 2007 - 9:28am [Dine in]

Great little sushi bar with decent food, medium-sized portions and very friendly service by owners--Jennifer and Newman. A wonderful place or a cheap meal that comes with tea, miso soup and a welcoming smile. Always our first choice in Davietown.

Coffee as Bitter as Staff
Submitted Saturday, February 10, 2007 - 9:22am [Dine in]

Bitter, grainy coffee. Owner appears to think it's perfect as his staff refused to add a little water to my cup after I politely asked for some. Amazing the measures the Vancouver restaurant industry goes to minimize income. I may have made a return visit for a different kind of coffee, but becasue of my experience with the staff, I and many of my friends will go further up the Drive for a better cup of bean.

Vineyard, The2296 W 4th Ave, Vancouver
Great Location...
Submitted Wednesday, January 10, 2007 - 6:56pm [Dine in]

Food middle of the road. Just don't look down at the mess on the floor. Owner should invest in a vaccuum cleaner. We used to go here regularly, but because of the filth prefer to dine elsewhere. Service is all right.

New India Buffet & Restaurant805 W Broadway, #105, Vancouver
A New Discovery
Submitted Wednesday, January 10, 2007 - 6:49pm [Dine in]

A place to go for an Indian buffet. Lots of choice for a decent price. Great city view. Fresh salads. Best to go after 5:30 at times--occassionally lunch food hasn't been replenished until then, and pickings are soggy and sparse.

Prices Rising
Submitted Wednesday, January 10, 2007 - 6:45pm [Dine in]

Not as much of a deal as it used to be. The food okay; the servers smile. Two years ago we'd make the trip from downtown to eat here. The price, though, has risen steadily and now it's not worth the trip. Great if you all you want is a few items to gorge yourself with.

White Spot1616 West Georgia Street, Vancouver
White Spot a Black Spot on West Side Restaurant Scene
Submitted Friday, December 22, 2006 - 8:39pm [Dine in]

Fish n' Chips. Had to have it. Have been to the White Spot on Broadway and remember ample pieces of fish and bottomless fries. W. Georgia was a different story. Minnows for dinner and, yes, lots of chips. I didn't want to spend $12 for, essentially, a plate of fries, really, but I was hungry and I did. We table hopped a bit as the floor hadn't been vacuumed for a very long time. Ate in a darker area of the place so I wouldn't be turned off by the dirt. I eat out frequently but will never return to White Spot on W. Georgia.

Kam's Place1043 Davie Street, Vancouver
Kicked Out of Kam's
Submitted Thursday, December 21, 2006 - 8:56am [Dine in]

Incredible is the word for Kam's. Surprised were we when owner Kam approached us at the door this evening--something he's never done personally, and asked us to leave. Seems a few weeks ago we didn't tip the waiter. The server didn't deserve one. He was rude. How Kam knew we didn't leave a tip and why he decided it was grounds to dismiss us from our job as customers, I find bizarre. It was amazing (and frightening) that he appeared rational while telling us that because we didn't approve of the service we were no longer welcome in his restaurant. All over a $2 tip! We left the restaurant stunned at the length he will go to lose customers who have never complained, never caused a ruckus and who have otherwise always tipped. There is a plethora of more decent inexpensive restaurants in Davietown--one's, I realise, that haven't been closed by the health department-- that we will frequent. I won't miss the weird ambience and the lunatic behaviour of Kam's staff. Unbelievable that restaurants can keep their doors open when they treat paying ustomers with such flagrant disdain.
