    Chambar is now open for brunch with ~300 seats. The menu is essentially the same as the Cafe Medina menu of old (including waffles). So if you're looking to skip Medina's crazy lines...

    Congolaise or mussels in coconut cream, smoked chili & lime is what I normally get with one of their wide selection of Belgian beer. Their dessert by far is the highlight - amazing dessert chef!

    The menu effortlessly hops from BC-flavoured French classics to Belgian moules-frites. Also known for serving the city's best tajine. [Eater 38 Member]

    Great place for brunch or for any meal. Healthy and delicious. Casual yet sort of upscale, but more casual.

    A vibe most representative of the city: highly sophisticated, yet laid back. A bit pricey, but the premium is worth it.

    The Blue Fig. Oven roasted figs steeped in gin. Freeze &serve with a side of Danish blue...don't put this in your drink, nibble &sip. The sharpness of the cheese mellows out the figgy gin. Read more

    Same brunch menu as Medina's, and they take resos! Brunch starts at 8 am for those early birds - avoid the rush!

    If you are in a mood for a cocktail that is not as fruity as usual, try the Blue Fig... Goes really good with the Stilton

    The lounge is perfect for cocktails, mingling and cozy chatter -- but I prefer dining in the back (with the exposed brick and beautiful high ceilings). The mussels are a must.
