You Must Order: The Harissa Pain Plat ($17). The ground beef is stuffed inside a grilled pita and topped with a fried egg. 
Need to Know ... bartender and drinks writer Shawn Soole: "One of the best brunch places hands down. A quick service waffle coffee bar in the front and full restaurant in the back."

MasterChef Canada contestant Mike Green says: "The waffles were always the best in Canada, as were the lattes and brunches in general. But now the menu under Jonathan Chovancek has gotten even better, with outrageously good dishes topped with eggs that no one in Vancouver seems to mind waiting hours for. The fact that their kitchen continues to deliver despite dealing with such large volumes is staggering, while I have to mention the new flatbread with honey and mascarpone as one of the best bites I had all year."
