Medina Cafe

Wow, I’m amazed I finally made it to Medina Cafe. This place is always insanely busy for brunch. Their sister restaurant, Chambar Restaurant, is in Gastown.

Hours.

We dropped in on a Saturday (around 10:00am) and put our name on the wait list. It was an hour wait time but you can see/watch your spot in the virtual/online wait list.

Service is friendly and even though it’s busy, the inside felt calm and tranquil.

The menu consists of two daily specials and 15 brunch options. Of course, there’s their liege style waffles for dessert. Happy hour is hilariously from 9:00am to 11:00am.
