Note: they will not make you a macchiato. Lame.

Order ahead if you're hoping to get it to go and don't have time to wait 15-20min.
Practically impossible to not order the Pulled Pork Johnny Cakes. Brunch is a small but strong menu. Steak frites and duck meatball spaghetti are super solid. All fresh and local.
Smoked Meat sandwich was very dry and the flavor is overrun by sauerkraut & little vinegar pickles. I recommend taking most of it out if you wanna taste the smoked meat.
If you're into overpriced street food this is the place to be!
Patio, beer & burgers are the heart & soul of this place. Stay focused.
Best place in town to wait for a table. Trust me. Go to the back, have a drink and chill out. Your time will come.
Not only are they incredibly friendly staff that actually smile at you and chat, they make a perfect Americano to complement their incredible pastries.
Please stop with the watered down Americano! You can't taste the coffee. I shouldn't have to go elsewhere in town to get proper taste from your beans.
Try the custom Mill St. beer made only for the Fairmont Royal York.
Easily one of the best meals I've ever had in Vancouver. Go for the chef's tasting menu. You won't regret it.
Lakeview Club with a Lakeview poutine upgrade. Both were solid. Was convinced by our server to try the milkshake with a slice of pie mixed into it, which wasn't awesome.
Make a reso unless you're cool getting cozy at the bar. Chicken enchiladas verde are monster. Tacos al pescado are great as well. If you're starting with guac make it spicy! (It's not that spicy)
Meh. Anything below Spicy = no spice. This is definitely not the best Thai food I've had in town. Too sweet and not enough spice to be called Thai food.
Don't let the small menu be a barrier. The food is fantastic and the espresso is solid. Yet another hidden gem on Sorauren.
