Yes and within a couple of blocks preferably. Need to still be able to walk back to work within a reasonable time.

icafe? pricey but the food itself isn't too bad. it's not great by any means though.

edit: sorry, i thought ontario was closer to the "tree" streets lol it's probably a 10-15min walk from ontario.

Not within walking distance. But if you have the time for lunch etc, then Gloucester or Copa on Cambie.

Gloucester is horrible imo. Since their glory days pre skytrain line which fucked them hard they have yet to be anywhere close to their past, not even close. I though I would give them another shot the other day b/c I figure how bad can it be if I order regular shit. Got the typical 3 meats on a grill deal and I actually only ate half, packed the rest but ended up chucking it in the end it was that bad. Every single thing was bland as fuck.

TOS'd - Congee Noodle house down the street has the HK Style milk tea. Sometimes it's decent, sometimes it sucks but beggers can't be choosers I guess.

there's kam's bakery on main as well just off broadway. that hole in the wall has been there since the early 80's. congee noodle might be better but some waitresses there have a bitchy attitude even by chinese restaurant standards. Kams regular waitresses are at least nice and friendly. the old grandma that works there is a nice lady too. never a line up, always has seating available. accepts credit card too.

ya i used to go there once a week on weekends and then they 'updated' their menu and saw myself going once every few weeks and then once every few months. waitresses there still recognize us when we go though. the bakery stuff isn't too bad either so their breakfast bun is pretty good.

just watch out for their back hallway floor. very slippery due to grease. you'll almost kill yourself when you try to go take a piss

Shining Garden opened up back in 2014, it used to be a dimsum place before and the dimsum there was decent. Shining garden does have a good lunch time / after school menu. I loved their wonton and egg noodles there. their chicken wings are pretty good too.

Oh damn that place is still there? I remember my parents always taking me there when I was a kid over 20 years ago, May have to give it a shot for old times sake.

Never knew about this place. Surprise they even have a website.
@Glow, can you clarify what you meant by 'updated' menu? Are the price still the same as their website?
$7.25 for a baked items (or pretty much their whole menu) w/ a drink during non-lunch / after 9pm hours is quite a steal!

How does the current price compared to

2011
Kam?s Bakery on Main and East 8th Ave, Vancouver |

and 2014
Vanbrosia: Kam's Bakery & Restaurant / ??????

Still same as Aug 2014? Or $10 bucks now?

$10.50 for their lunch "special" doesn't look that attractive anymore

Oh man, Kam do, their mix steak plate was the best. Beef steak, pork steak, chicken breast, sausage, black pepper sauce, soup of the day and a cold drink, all for only $13

I went to Kam's Bakery for lunch today. $7.25 for Toast/Bacon/2 eggs/Ham with macaroni soup/hot milk tea. Was decent and I don't mind going back. The older asian waitress is really nice as mentioned above.

Kam Do was probably the best that I've ever been to. Too bad it didn't open late.

Grilled Sirloin Steak with garlic bread and soup and a large drink for 9 bucks , I think. fuaaa

It's called the Mandarin Hong Kong cafe. I was really happy to see a HK cafe style place open near my work. I went there today for lunch and was not impressed.

Prices are quite expensive for what you get, food was average.
Ordered baked porkchop on rice which was $13-15, no drink.

Most entrees are in the $13-15 price range, the dinner entrees are around $23-25.
They have a few lunch specials around $13-15 with drink.
I went with a co-worker and we waited about 15mins to get seated since it was lunch time. When we saw the menu we were like WTF? Should we leave?

If the food was 1/2 the price, then I'd say it would be acceptable. I guess rent here is expensive since the Pho place near by is $2-3 more expensive per entree than your typical Pho place.

I tried "Enjoy Cafe" (the old eCanteen) the other day.

Ordered a noodle dish. It was okay, but too saucy. The milk tea tasted off. I can't quite explain it. Service was alright and it wasn't too busy. Prices are reasonable.

Can't say I could recommend it, though.
