9th Avenue Grill is a family-run breakfast haven. Serving free-range eggs and fair trade coffee and a plethora of omelette choices, along with all the classics. Breakfast is served all day long.
This place used to be good. Back when it had different owners, and a cook named jose worked there. I used to eat there alot, but the place has seriously gone downhill. The food is of high quality, too bad they cant cook it right. The homefries(hashbrowns) are always undercooked and starchy. Then comes the bacon, i dont think there has beeen a time it has ever been cooked properly whether its in a ommlette or just on the side. Like serously i ask for very few things in life and one of them is crispy bacon. Furthermore, the wait times are horrendous and the waitress they got working there will probably get your order wrong.Now i know it seems i comlained alot but when your paying 12$ for breakfast i think it should be good. The new owners ruined this place and its too bad because the area needs a good breakfast place.
I went there for lunch one day, ordered the crab cakes. They were not good. The cakes were flat, no shape or height and tasted bland, had to add alot of sauce to it. The sangria was very good, and the service was nice and pleasant. Love the ambiance, although small as it is, it was cozy. Do not order the crab cakes.
I went to this little restaurant that was new to my neighborhood last year, had their three cheese omelette, and fresh Saltspring Island organic coffee, and have been going back every few days since.
It serves breakfast and lunch foods-I hope that they start opening in the evening one day. I find their breakfasts so fresh, served w/ light alternatives to bread like sliced tomatoes and fruit, so there is a calorie-wise version to many of the dishes. Their breads are multigrain, white or sourdough. Just delicious! Many variations on eggs benny and specials on each day.
It is a very small room, intimate-and I like that. It can get very busy from 9-2pm, but the wait is worth it and I think the staff do a great job. Cheers to the Ninth Avenue Grill!
After searching desperately when living in the kitsilano area for a breakfast place that didn't either absolutely suck or have 50 people lined up for over an hour I came upon the 9th ave grill. Thank you god! It is small and slowly becoming more and more poplular to my own dissapointment but if you get in early enough it is easy enough to get a seat right away. This place has never disappointed. I sit down, the waitress comes and i get a menu and a drink order. The drink order comes, they take my order. The girls are always polite and relaxed. I read the paper for 5-10 min depending on how busy they are and then an ample sized portion food comes which is tempting to the tastebuds. That is all that needs to be said. Time and time again it is always the perfect little diner to go to eat. A good way to start your day. No hassles, friendly service, no annoyances and you leave with a belly full of really well made food.
I thought I would check out this breakfast place that my friends had been raving about. When I got there, I took a peak at their menu (which has everything on it!), and realized that I really wanted a burger. I decided to give thier 9th Avenue Burger a try. It had sauteed mushrooms, bacon and cheddar. It was delicious! I savored every bite. I asked the server about where they got them (I was thinking they would be great for bbq in the summer), and she informed me that they made the burgers themselves!
My friend ordered a cheese omelette and (that's the tilte). It came with pancakes, an omelette, bacon and sausage. It was huge! She loved it, but couldn't quite finish it.
The servers were really friendly and chatty, which is always good at a breakfast place.
The only bad part was that we had to wait for a table and wait a bit for our food. But then, I guess that is expected since the restaurant was packed with a line up!
