Ha a great time having lunch here last week with my kids. They have a little place on the side, away from the quiet patrons with their laptops, with a kids table and blocks. That was much appreciated. Though my kids didn't play much because they were busy eating the amazing burrito and cookie I had ordered. Super cool atmosphere. Will be back soon!

I visit this cafe fairly frequently as I live close by and always have a great experience. Love the location, atmosphere and fit out- and the staff are always friendly. Their burritos are amazing with a couple of vego options including Mr Bean which is one of my faves (although i'm still devastated that they don't have the 'thaico' or 'stevie wonder' anymore!). They make great coffee and drinks too, and a nice little selection of gluten free baked goods.

Great friendly service. Food came fast. Small latte and large fish burrito came to $11. The ingredients fresh and I was more than full. Nice atmosphere just like the name says. It's got a contemporary loft feel - feels like your first apartment but with friends that make tacos and allows you to relax with coffee or tea for as long as you want.

Came here for lunch after a visit to Lynn Canyon. We enjoyed it! It may not be for everyone - the menu was limited and service fairly slow. However, it's still a fun, unique and tasty spot to check out at least once, and in a central location near the water in North Vancouver. We had a group and sampled many of the items - huevos rancheros, quesadilla, fiesta soup, tacos -and it was all very good.
The art aspect probably also won't please everyone, it was quirky at best. But again still pleasant especially if you take it all in the right spirit.

Can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Everything is fresh as can be and made to order. Best burritos north of San Francisco, a real North Vancouver gem. Just please promise not to tell too many people! Enjoy!!!!!
