    Every time I go to Vancouver I stop by here for breakfast. Get the waffles and try them with white chocolate pistachio. If you go for a latte try adding lavender to it

    The waffles were incredible! With the pistachio white chocolate with rosewater 😻👏🏻 & lavender latte. Also, they have the best hummus that I have ever had! 👌🏻

    Get there early! Waffles are to die for and the Wolves Breakfast is a feast. Try one of their signature lavender lattes. Recommend and will go back. Kudos to Julia!

    The quality is conspicuous by the crowed waiting to be seated on a regular Monday , at 1 ! Had the salmon fume and liked it! The Mocha's were tasty too!

    The Harissa Burger!!

    I'm not going to lie. But the liege waffle from blue bottle is a lot better. It's not as dense as the ones here. But Medina's lamb meatball is awesome 👌🏻

  • Rishi M.

    Good food, but so what? Line stretches to hours even on weekdays. C'mon Vancouver, this place isn't life changing.

    Lavender latte is great! Can't go wrong with the frittata of the day!

    Chrissy Tobin · September 20, 2015
  • Kittie C.

    Lives up to the hype! The long wait is worth it, just out your name down and have a coffee nearby. The fricassee - beef shortrib with aged white cheddar and roast potatoes 👌

    Kittie Chan · September 18, 2015
  • Zach N.

    Waffles and medina bacon.

    Came here twice when visiting Vancouver. Everything is fantastic! Get the Le Peameal; it's delicious and helps to feed someone in need! Incredibly helpful and friendly staff! Worth the hour-long wait.

    The fricassee was outstanding and so was the white chocolate, pistachio and rose water sauce for the waffles.

    White chocolate, rose water and pistachio sauce for the waffles are to die for! The wait was 2 hours until we received our food but was worth it. Didn't love the coffee

    It's all about the Belgian Waffles, you want want something else, but think of that as your sides.

    The waffles are amazing!

    Viv C · January 9, 2015

    Try the lavender latte. Get a waffle (white chocolate pistachio rosewater & marmalade fig jam were scrumptious) - and share the fricasse (large portion)

    Leah Johnson · December 30, 2014
  • Dave T.

    Seating is ridiculous as usual. They still have difficulty seating groups with an odd number of people.

    Dave Turner · December 18, 2014
  • Arthur L.

    Waffles seem to be made beforehand and reheated before serving
