The room now has a lot of very small tables very close together. The table behind us was one inch from one of the chairs at our table. We had reserved a table for four and the small size meant it was a real challenge to get 4 breakfasts, 2 coffees, 1 juice, 4 glasses of water and one tea on the table. It just felt too crowded and awkward trying to pick up coffee cups etc.
The food was okay, but not outstanding, and the prices are pretty high. While my bennies were pretty close to the same price as many other breakfast places $13, the eggs, toast and bacon two in our party ate were also $13.00. The one above average feature of the bennies was the sauce-you rarely get it done right in a restaurant but they did here. Otherwise everyone reported the food was fine. Our bill for brunch for 4 was over $100.00
The service was average, again for an expensive restaurant it was not quite up to par. While our water glasses were refilled a little too often, I waited a long time for coffee. We arrived before our friends by about ten minutes. In most restaurants the server would have asked if we wanted something to drink [coffee, tea, etc.] while we waited for our friends. All we were offered was water and she did not come back to our table until about 10 minutes after our friends arrived. We were there about 45 minutes before our order was taken, and strangely enough our coffee/tea were not brought immediately but only when the food was served. Again, there was no sign of our server in the interim so we could not ask her to bring our beverages earlier. It was another 30 minutes when our breakfast arrived, so in total it took one hour and 15 minutes to get breakfast.
A second cup of coffee was requested and took 15 minutes to arrive. The coffee and tea are served in exactly the same small cups. While appropriate for tea, I for one, prefer my coffee in a taller container.
There are a lot of excellent places to go for breakfast in Vancouver so we won't be back here. The food and service do not justify the prices.
Maybe it is a curse of the location but Feenies had pretty bad service as well and we thought new owners would improve on that.
