On the search for breakfast we came across this place, not the best option but reasonable if you are hungry and like Holandiase sauce, many old pictures of strangers and old beer glasses on the wall ;)...

This place has the old-school feel of Vancouver before everything start to get homogeneous and sterile. It's got the feel of a family restaurant with the quirks and personality of its Dutch founder. It has a multicultural feel, too, since the menu has items (centered on pancakes) that meld Vancouver's culinary multiculturalism with the history of Dutch colonialism. For instance,... More

This somewhat quirky but great restaurant is an awesome place to eat for budget friendly folks or those who appreciate a tasty filling breakfast. Don't be fooled by the exterior, which looks a little home made and dated. The food here is so wonderful you won't care. I recommend the hash, and ask for authentic Hollandaise Sauce with it. Also,... More

This is a quaint place to have yummy breakfast! You get to seat yourself when you come in. The service is friendly and attentive. Decor is casual and quiet, which is a great place to have conversations while enjoying your meal. Their menu is extensive and value priced. Their portions are huge, so come hungry. You may need take out.... More

We enjoyed our Dutch pancakes and nasi goreng fried rice for brunch. It was busy and packed with regulars. Good service from the waitress and fast. Will repeat. Very homey decor, lived it.

Great filling breakfast with interesting Dutch kitschy decor. Loved the authentic Dutch menu and fusion style breakfast choices. First Dutch restaurant even though it's mainly just breakfast it's worth trying. It's a diverse menu with even some curry and other unexpected variations on breakfast foods. Loooove the strong tasty coffee and wow, super fast meals. Very friendly staff and might... More

My first time here, the menu was quite overwhelming because it's so lengthy with so many choices! I ended up getting the Dutchman style breakfast platter with spek (dutch bacon) including 2 eggs, toast, salad and hash browns for $9.95. I didn't want the hash browns and was able to get extra salad instead and it was all very hearty... More

Dutch Wooden Shoe is an old school breakfast place on Cambie. The ambiance a little divey; it hasn't changed much since it opened in the '70s I'm sure - and it's a little dark in here. I'm not usually one for changing old eateries, but they would be well served to create bigger windows in the front. Two reasons -... More

So this is my new favourite breakfast! Too bad I don't live anywhere nearby. Tons of options (sweet and savoury), quick service and wonderfully quirky atmosphere.

Staying in Shaughnessy

Neighbourhood Profile
Shaughnessy
Residential neighbourhood to the ultra-wealthy, the gorgeous manor houses centred around The Crescent area are a fabled sight to behold. Shaughnessy is Vancouver's most verdant plotted neighbourhood, and its tree-lined streets, walking routes, bike trails, and charming public parks make for an ideal location to spend and afternoon communing with nature. Consequently, it is also the botanical centre of the city, featuring conservatories and an expansive Botanical Garden, taming and sculpting the wild into seasonal viewing areas and enchanting landscapes. Quiet, elegant Shaughnessy excels at providing the Three Gs: Gardens, Golfing, and Galleries.
