A cafe serving Canadian and Chinese cuisine.
Mrs. C and I were out cruising for food and we spotted Kyle's. We took a chance and tried it out. We were seated at once by a smiling Mrs. Kyle and tried to choose between Chinese and Western food. The menu has separate sections for both.
We decided on a Denver sandwich and fries for me, and a "house special" (ham/bacon/sausage cheese and mushroom) omelette with home fries and toast for my beloved dinner companion. Both were great and the portions were generous.
The ambience was clean and dineresque, and the service was quite good. This place served up some unpretentious and satisfying food and we ate like kings for less than 15 bucks, including coffee.
A good meal. Recommended.
Decided to give this place a shot after walking by a couple of times. The interior is bland and not very clean. I ordered a breakfast consisting of hashbrowns, sausages, bacon and pancakes. Friend ordered a beef brisket noodle soup. The meat for my breakfast order was disgusting. It was clear they cooked it well in advance and placed it in the food warmer for longer than they should have. Hashbrowns were blackened at certain areas. At least the pancakes were passable. Friend's meal only had a couple measly pieces of beef brisket and a TON of noodles. Not much flavour to the soup according to him. While the place is cheap and the servers are curt and attentive, I would not recommend it at all unless you want to spend under $10 for underwhelming and disgusting food.
This place cannot be beat value wise, great breakfast, great asian food. The breakfast special is awesome, and the eggs benny are my personal fav. Then there's lunch and dinner, I would get the bean curd and black been sauce, I've heard the ginger beef is good, I imagine its all pretty tasty. Try it, you won't be dissappointed.
The servers at this place remember EVERYONE. They'll remember your order, how you like it, etc. They're great and really friendly. You can get a $2.99 breakfast special before 11am of Bacon, Eggs, Hashbrowns and Toast. Comparable with Bons off Broadway, but no line up.
After 11am you're still looking at a breakfast under $6. Not to mention the coffee refills keep coming as long as you're there.
I've been a regular there for a couple of years and it is incredibly underrated and worth a try.
They also serve lunch/dinner and chinese food, but I've never ventured into that realm. I am breakfast only kinda customer
Kyle's Cafe can be found on the southernmost end of Commercial Drive. It isn't a very noticeable place, and the food isn't anything to make special notice of either. I had the BBQ pork and Tofu on rice and it was extremely saucy and salty. The BBQ pork didn't taste fresh nor did the rice.
On a positive note, they do serve breakfast here all day and for $6-$7 you can get surprisingly generous portions. The combo includes 2 eggs, 2 bacon strips, 2 sausage links, potatoes, toast, and 2 pancakes. The breakfast isn't bad at all (seeing as it is quite difficult to make a simple breakfast taste bad). The service was also friendly and quick. And the restaurant is kept quite clean aside from the chairs being quite ratty and looking like they have lived through 50 years of age.
All in all I would come back here just for the cheap breakfast.
My girlfriend and I ended up coming to this place by chance. I originally did not want to go in because it does not exactly do much to draw to in. My girlfriend insisted we take a chance and that small places like this are always good. Well, this place is better than 'good', it is amazing! Kyles cafe offers a very large menu with both western and Chinese food. The portions are very generous and two people can dine for around $12! The staff is friendly and always remember their returning customers which is always nice. I always look for an excuse to go to lunch here any time I'm ever passing through the are. A wonderful little find!
