The Ovaltine Cafe

There is good stuff happening in the Ovaltine Cafe down near Hastings and Main. Grace, formerly an employee of the original Save on Meats cafe from back when Al Deslauriers was the owner, has taken over the Ovaltine Cafe and is working hard at improving the menu and the quality of the food. Visiting the […]


Rod’s Kitchen and Grill

Rod’s Kitchen and Grill is one of those places that I frequently drive by and think about trying but is unfortunately always closed when I am travelling through the neighbourhood. The reality is that Rod’s Kitchen and Grill is open during business hours to serve the nearby working people or Skytrain commuters. So this being […]


A Super Quick and Healthy Breakfast 

My One Pot Pasta was easy but this quick and healthy breakfast one is even easier! First, I cracked two eggs into a mug! As a side note, notice how the egg yolks are such different colours? I chopped up a small piece of cheddar cheese and less than a quarter cup of the leftovers […]


The Big 6 Restaurant For Breakfast

In my continuing research efforts of finding trustworthy breakfast joints around the Metro Vancouver area, I stopped at a Burnaby institution, the Big 6 Restaurant.    Years ago I would meet my grandfather at the Big 6 for the Trucker’s Breakfast special. Back then the special was $2.95. Now the Trucker’s Special of two eggs, […]


The Northern Cafe and Grill Vancouver

I’ve wanted to try the Northern Cafe and Grill Vancouver for a long time but their hours of 7am to 3pm has made it virtually impossible for me to get a meal there. Well, with me being on summer holidays, I saw my opportunity. Going for a breakfast at the Northern Cafe and Grill Vancouver […]


Jimoco Cafe – Cheap Breakfast

If you ask people where to go for a cheap breakfast usually the first place they say is Bon’s off Broadway. Some people will also say IKEA’s one dollar breakfast is the real deal. Well the real deal and the best, cheap breakfast in town is the Jimoco Café. From opening until 9:30 AM they […]


Biscuits and Gravy at Tony’s in Blaine

On the weekend I was in Blaine Washington a little too early to get into the post office so I did what I like to do best – I found a little hole in the wall joint and had a second breakfast. One of the things that never fails to intrigue me is the fact that […]


Breakfast at the Jimoco Cafe

I was surprised to notice that I have not added the Jimoco Cafe, one of my favourite Tri-Cities breakfast joints to my list of trusted brekkie joints. I have been going to the Jimoco Cafe for quite a few years and I have always been impressed with the quality and presentation of their food. This […]


Fat Jack’s Homestyle Diner in the Fraser Canyon

There is nothing particularly unique or special about another diner opening up these days. Even if it is east of Boston Bar, way up the Fraser Canyon. The thing that makes Fat Jack’s Homestyle Diner unique is that it is run by Todd, a “celebrity-type” chef from Vancouver who used to run a critically acclaimed […]


Fat Jack’s Homestyle Diner at The Mighty Fraser

Typically you expect to see hipsters, the tattooed, toque and black t-shirt wearing twenty-somethings in Vancouver on Main Street between King Ed and north towards Kingsway. Sometimes they will head further east as far away from Main Street as Fraser Street. Rarely though will you see them east of that. So imagine my surprise when […]
