If the Black Plague were to ever re-surface, we could probably trace its origin back to Bon's. In my 20 years of existence and in the 20 countries I have visited I have NEVER seen a more disgusting looking restaurant in my life, and that is no exaggeration. I only hope that the kitchen is cleaner then the rest of the restaurant, but I know deep inside that its probably not. The food took around 40 minutes (which is somewhat acceptable as the restaurant was very busy) to get to my table and when it did I had second thoughts on it. Dust is noticable all around you and it is wise not to touch anything but your plate.
So why did I come here if all I'm going to do is complain? I wanted to try the city famous 2.99 breakfast. Really, its the only reason you should come here, I wouldn't take a chance ordering anything else on the menu. The patrons are made up of hippies and hobos who all came here to save a couple dollars at the expense of their health so (not being a hobo or a hippie) I felt a bit misplaced coming in. The breakfast is only special because of how cheap it is and taste-wise, is nothing special.
Please avoid this place, if you must come do yourself a favour and leave your children (if you have any) at home. Its not going to kill them, you'll just be glad later that you did. You get expensive eggs in a clean environment at IHOP and cheap eggs in a dirty environment at Bon's, personally I like to make my eggs in the cheap/clean environment of my own home.

Gross Food

If you come here make sure you only get either the bacon cheeseburger or the big breakfast. And make sure you only expect mediocrity from those because everything else is gross!

Last night, I ordered teriyaki chicken wings and got deep fried, breaded chicken wings with hoisin sauce ladled over top. HOISIN! Disgusting. Another time, I ordered the seafood platter and it was some deepfried, probably out of the box, breaded garbage. I'm sure I would've eaten better if I had just bought a quickdinner from Superstore.

The ambience is not good at all. This place is a total dump! It would've been excusable if the food were good but it wasn't and if it weren't for low prices and peoples' low standards, this place would've been gone long ago!

Like the title says...
Went here with my bro last week cause alot of people tell me its awesome.
It was good I'd say.
Service was fairly umm dis-interested?BUT the old guy in the security outfit serving coffee refills was awesome!
We both had the special breakfast both scrambled.
Took forever.
But when it arrived it was everything it was promised to be - that is scrambled eggs hashbrowns meat and toast. Not bad at all, in fact pretty damn good for 3 bucks.
The coffee was great.
I'd go back.

Noisy, Crowded, Happening Place -- but NOT a place for a relaxing breakfast
By railbirdbc of East Vancouver (4 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, August 13, 2006 - 1:24pm [Dine in]

My husband and I went there for breakfast this morning for the first time. We arrived shortly after opening and the place was hopping already. Obviously, you have to get there at opening to get a Booth. The service was slow because there were only 2 waitresses on duty -- they were both run off their feet. The food was cheap; the ambience noisy and unrelaxing. We foudnt eh environment uncomfortable and likely won't be going back because of that. The food was more than acceptable, but if I can't relax while I'm eating it, I can't really enjoy it.
