Brazza Gelato & Coffee1846 Lonsdale Avenue, North Vancouver
new ownership results in overall decline. rat infestation!
Submitted Thursday, November 3, 2016 - 10:16am [Dine in]

the previous owners set the bar and left some big shoes for the new owner to fill. so far its not even close.
it used to be a great spot to get a quick cup of fresh coffee but now its the slowest process on lonsdale, I guess when there is only one staff working who has to do the til as well as make the coffee and god forbid if someone in line orders a gelato, your waiting close to 10 minutes for your americano

I have seen evidence of rat droppings on the floor, and I have overhead the owner saying they have a serious rat problem. he has seen the rats running all over the counters and even in the gelato coolers. We will not eat the baked goods anymore nor will we eat the gelato.

the owner seems to only hire young inexperience baristas which is fine if you give them the training but I dont want them training on my 4 dollar espresso. teach them after hours so my espresso isnt burnt or too hot.
when we order a cappicino, I want dont want a latte.

The previous owners would always make the temperature so the espresso was drinkable right away, not this owner. If I wanted to burn my mouth I would go to Starbucks.

the service is 1-2 stars out of 5 at best unless you are lucky enough to get Salvatore or his sister who definitely know what they are doing and know how to make a delicious Americano.

the atmosphere has dropped to 1-2 stars, unless there is a football (soccer) match on, then its ok. otherwise many of the regular clients have found another coffee shop.

food and gelato we wont touch because of the rats.

coffee depends on who is your barista, but 2-3 stars average unless Salvatore is your barista.

the new red seats outside are extremely uncomfortable..too bad it was a nice spot to sit and watch the passerbys.

Suggestions to the new owner
if it isnt broke, dont fix it. you didn't need to change anything.

Time to find a new coffee shop.

Vera's Burger Shack1842 Lonsdale Avenue, North Vancouver
Not like it used to be
Submitted Sunday, September 18, 2016 - 7:57pm [Dine in]

Burgers and fries are not exactly hi end dining but the prices charged here are expensive for what you get. The burger was ok, that's it. Fries ok. Expensive meal though. Service was mediocre at best. New oWners?
AnOther patron went out for smoke, right outside the door, we asked the manager to deal with the cigarette smoke blowing into restaurant. She did nothing about it, patron threw his smoke on the ground and didn't put it out, smoke lingered into the restaurant for minutes and again we asked the patron to put it out and then the manager after the patron gave us attitude. Manager did nothing Again. It's probably her son who needs a lesson in manners.
The type of customers this little shack is attracting will prevent us from returning ever again.
Don't go

Dundarave Concession2506 Bellevue, West Vancouver
Dundarave concession equals horrible burgers
Submitted Sunday, July 31, 2016 - 9:24am [Take-out]

In years past, I have enjoyed some of the best burgers at the stand, born and raised in dundarave the Vera's burger shack were rated best burgers on the shore. I decided to try it again last week after many years going without. The service was average at best but I don't care about the service if the burger is good. It was the most unflavorful, boring, inspiced, over priced burger I have ever had. I don't even think it was fully cooked. We ordered 6 burgers for the entire family and not one of us finished our burger.
Some of us had the organic patty others had standard party and all were sub par.
Don't expect to get anything decent from this stand anymore, unless the owners/chef start to put a little pride in their food.
Horrible burgers
