Breakfast Spot

“Highly recommended are the waffles and the fricassee. Waffles were nice and soft on the outside and tasted very fresh accompanied by various dip flavors. The fricassee was very tasty and had a good portion of side rib accompanied with a sun side egg cooked perfectly.”

French Restaurant

“Les Faux is an institution in our hood and was one of the first more upscale restaurants to move into the neighbourhood years ago. It's a classic French bistro at a low price tag. Most mains are around $20 and they have an excellent bar. You can't go wrong with their original recipe French onion soup or Steak & Frites. They have lots of seasonal specials too. ”

Café

“Don't dress up -- this is a casual neighbourhood bakery restaurant frequented by the laid-back Kitsilano crowd. Brunch is served daily until 3pm and the menu is entirely organic (with prices to match the high food quality). Think stuffed French toast, roasted fennel tofu scramble and breakfast burritos. Portions are generous and many gluten free and vegan options are available. Save room for pie or cake -- dozens of flavours are on offer, including two gluten-free vegan cakes (available in full-size) and ten gluten-free vegan pies!”
