This is the first time I have been to this cafe on the corner of Denman and Robson. I had a late lunch here yesterday. Order an americano and a BLT. The american used Saltspring coffee and was pretty good. BLT took a while but it was worth the wait. It had fresh ingredients and was tasty. I will return when I am looking for a light snack or lunch. I might try their breakfast next time.
This place has soups, sandwiches, and other small meal sort of foods from organic foods I think. The food is okay..nothing special. They have a few vegetarian choices. Their sandwiches aren't THAT filling. It's like your regular home made sandwich really. The service was a little slow when I went, they were training a new employee. A regular sandwich cost me over 6 dollars though, not really worth it. Didn't have to wait too long.
It's pretty spacious in there, so no rush or worrying about seating. Nce that they have outdoor seatings and window seats too. They used to have a bit of competition from Bojangles across the street, but it has been replaced by yet another Starbucks.
Don't really recommend it that much. If you want good food, just walk further down Denman, there are tons.
Came across this little cafe, 2 years ago, and decided to try the coffee there instead of the franchise across the street; I'd rather support a mom 'n' pop operation than a big name franchise.
The coffee was Salt Spring Island Organic Roast and was please to find it excellent. I eat the bacon and eggs there and find that enjoyable; there are fresh meat sandwiches which Steve(the owner) uses roasts rather than deli meat. For those that eat less the X spot serves side dishes like one poached egg, side order of hash browns, etc., etc. I go because Steve and his family are very friendly and nice people, the coffee is excellent and the food is good. Prices are reasonable too.
