    The pancake gin & soda is yummy. The vegetarian shepherd's pie was really good and comes in its own tiny cast iron skillet. The poutine was just cheese melted on fries with some gravy, so skip it.

    My new favorite diner for comfort food on Hastings Street. Try the BLT or The Save-On-Meats Burger with fries & gravy. Reasonable prices & friendy staff. Ice Cold Coca Cola Served here. Read more

    For those of us who like "medium-rare" burgers, this is one of the few places in Vancouver that can cook them that way (they grind their own meat). The burgers are amazing.

    For shopping at the deli, check the board for the daily 15% discount. Or, bring proof that you're a student, a senior, or a first responder and get 15% off your entire purchase!

    Love the diner atmosphere and food was good too. Hard to beat a breakfast for less than $10

    Our waitress Alysia, a self proclaimed food lover, was invaluable to the experience as she understood my whims and served a savoury meal. I will not hesitate to go back a third time.

    The sandwich window is an excellent place for a cheap lunch, but expect to wait a few minutes. Don't miss the pulled pork sandwich.

    Do yourself a favor and get the 1.50 cheddar rosemary biscuit breakfast sandwich at the walk up window, best deal in town.

    Try the chicken & waffles - the only place I know in Vancouver that brings you this Southern staple. Syrup on EVERYTHING!

    Mediocre burger (awful bun), good club sandwich, horrendous breakfast, decent Reuben. Service needs a big improvement and salad dressing choices are non-existent. Plain mashed potatoes? Really?
