Acme Cafe

Located  along the boarder of West and East hastings (between Gastown and China town), Acme Cafe is an American style diner that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. The restaurant is very casual with booths, counters and bar stool seating. It looks like a place you would bring a foreign friend visiting America for the first time. Think a more neutral-coloured Dennys. Continue reading

Avenue Grill for Brunch

I was craving eggs benedict so I decided to have brunch with a girlfriend in the vicinity which happened to be Kerrisdale. Avenue grill is a small little bistro-like restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. It’s been in Kerrisdale for as long as I can remember…. I’ve been there a couple times for lunch and dinner but I never knew what kind of restaurant it was. They serve a lot of italian dishes mixed with some seafood/westcoast style plates as well.

What I ordered:

The shrimp & avocado eggs benny served with home fries 2.5/5

  • The poached eggs were well made, the english muffin was a little too hard and over-toasted. Instead of hash browns, they served “home fries” which were small sliced up pieces of potato that were pan fried. I did not understand the concept of the “home fries”….

Mimosa 3/5

  • Not the best and certainly not worth the price of $7.00

Service 4.5/5

Our waitress was attentive and friendly


Verdict: I would NOT go back for brunch but maybe for lunch or dinner. The bill came out to be about $35 for two people at brunch. So. Overpriced.
