True Confections866 Denman, Vancouver
Vastly Overpriced
Submitted Monday, December 22, 2008 - 12:25am [Dine in]

My first visit here was encouraged by the delicious looking cake in the display windows ; the 'cool' arty coffee shop vibe gleaned from glancing in the window ; nice decor.

But the service leaves a lot to be desired. On my two visits there (both take out, as i couldnt persuade my boyfriend to sit in) i was left waiting at the door for at least five minutes. After grabbing a cake menu, i eventually was asked to order, at the cash register, where i waited a further few minutes.

This wouldnt really both me if the food had been worth it.
i can't remember how much i paid exactly, it was between 8-10 dollars for ONE slice of cake! Which again, i wouldn't have minded except the slice in question was very small! It's crazy to charge THAT much for one very slim, piece of cake. I got the chocolate orange on the last occasion, which wasnt actually too nice, kind of dry.

I vowed never to go back there again, and i never will.
Walk down to Acacia on Denman (its inbetween fatburger and delaneys) and sample some of their gorgeous, home made deserts for a half or third of the price.

Flying Wedge Pizza Co.1059 Denman Street, Vancouver
Waay too much for a slice of average pizza

I agree with the reviewer below. I was hankering after a slice of pizza and couldn't be bothered walking down the length of denman to my usual ; une numero pizza pizzeria. I walked into the flying wedge instead, after reading about their famous pizza.

I ended up spending almost 6 dollars on a slice of pesto and cheese pizza slice- crazy!!
Who would pay that much?? i had no idea it was THAST expensive.
the pizza slice itself was okay - slightly cardboardy texture. not the freshest.

the staff were not the most attentive either. Basically for all its 100% organic ingredients its not what its cracked up to be. Go anywhere else instead.

Been here on 3 occasions, each time came out very very satisfied with the food. The salmon pasta dish (cannot remember the correct title)
was amazing, the most satisfying burst of flavors that my mouth has had the pleasure to endure. Big portions, too.

Its a small place, so id definitely book a reservation, as on 2 out of the 3 occasions iv been there, we had to wait. The service is friendly, kooky, but.. i did feel like the servers were definatly trying to push the meal further, to hike the price of the bill up. i know its their job, but its nice to be subtle.

Saying that the atmosphere and food and general service are heartily recommended by me, especially the food!

Perfect little spot for an afternoon drink/ soiree especially after walking through the bones of gastown. Drinks are steadfast, the food is reliable pub nosh, actually a notch higher than this. Atmosphere is cosy, secluded.

Try a pint of cider with a dash of blackcurrant.old skool.. The main fish dish as also quite decent. Nice fries.. proper, old style chips that eschew those greasy skinny pieces of potato that pass for mcdonald fries...

Acacia Fillo Bar & Cafe1103 Denman Street, Vancouver
My stomach groans in pleasure!

Wow. Upon glancing into this small, candle lit restaurant, i was led in by the welcoming atmosphere. On a typical rainy Vancouver evening, it was like a warming balm rubbed gently to the soul.

We were welcomed into an almost empty place, but jeez what it lacked in people it more than made up for in general atmosphere (cosy cosy cosy ; in a laid back Mediterranean vibe) and the FOOD....

SO GOOD!! Seriously. I got a cream of mushroom soup , you could tell it was home-made (i asked) it was rich creamy and very tasty. Then ; the roast vegtable fillo The fil.lo was actually very light (appearances are deceptive) this came with a tiny lovely little side salad and mouth wateringly tasty roasted potatoes and yams, all diced up.

Desert was a revelation ; mixed berries, with little chunks of chocolate warmed and wrapped in fillo pastry, served with cream, anyone? No? All for me then..
.
We came down for breakfast 2 days after our meal. In contrast to the
previous outing, the cafe was throbbing with people.. i can guess why, after tasting the most freshest portion of fruit parfait for my uber healthy breakfast.

The poached eggs benedict seemed to be ordered at a flying rate, so we ordered one to share. A spinach and wild mushroom eggs benny.WOW is all i can say. The eggs were perfect, soft and fluffy, the sauce on top (not hollandaise) was the best thing about the dish, the waitress couldnt divulge the secret ingredient but it is 100% home-made. kind of garlicky? and oh so good.

I'm certainly going back to taste this breakfast (and a few other things i had my eye on in the menu..) again, and i can definatly advise the next foodie to also.

A quick note ; the prices are ridiculously low! the eggs were 7 dollars, they were worth double, especially when u compare this standard of food to places lie Joe's grill, also on denman. It visibly pales in comparioson... So GO EAT!
