Sheraton Wall Centre Event Catering

I went to a gala dinner at the Sheraton Wall Centre last night. I was not optimistic about the food, given the less than stellar reviews on Urbanspoon about room service and Cafe One restaurant. The event started off with cocktails, where servers walked around with hot canapes. These were really good. I sampled a … Continue reading

Cafe Crepe

I find it difficult to find good breakfast places that open earlier than 9am within a short distance of my hotel. I mean sit down breakfast, not grab and go. So I went to Cafe Crepe, which had been a goto on many occasions. I find that they serve reliable food and that the service … Continue reading

Waffle & Berries

Looking for breakfast… again. One does need to eat when one is travelling. This is a diamond in the rough. Their signature dish is the Liege waffle. The Liege Breakfast had my name on it. Our server and cook cautioned us on being too large for one person; it is a breakfast for two. I … Continue reading

Yaletown Brewing

Yaletown Brewing is a large, family friendly pub. They seem to be very accommodating with the ramps for strollers and the amount of room around the tables. With four adults and two kids in tow, they were up to the challenge. We were seated on the patio under the warmth of the heater. The umbrellas … Continue reading

Moonpennies

Sometimes, when you are constantly eating out, you just want something that is quick and healthy. I was looking for something similar to my normal breakfast. Which is steel cut oats with fruit, yogurt and a couple of fried eggs on the side. Moonpennies was close enough. I ordered the honey granola with fruit and … Continue reading

I was on a search for something healthy to tide me over between lunch and dinner. Voila, I found the Green Leaf Salad Bar. This little place serves a variety of Mediterranean food. The salad bar looked fresh and tasty. I helped myself to a good sized portion of mixed greens, peas, chickpeas, pineapple, strawberries, … Continue reading
