    Chambar is now open for brunch with ~300 seats. The menu is essentially the same as the Cafe Medina menu of old (including waffles). So if you're looking to skip Medina's crazy lines...

    Great patio. Probably the best mussels in Vancouver. Never had a bad meal here. The staff are always friendly & helpful. Menu changes seasonally so never becomes boring. Portions are a decent size.

    One of the best breakfasts I had in a while. It is crowded, be ready to wait in line and to pay top dollar, place is it cheap. But it is worth it.

    Great place, one of the best brunches I've ever had. Place is crowded so be prepared to wait in line, it is not cheap but is well worth it.

    The salmon waffle was really nice. My brother had the steak and eggs and I was super jealous. I thought it would be huge but actually it’s a nice brunch portion. Strong recommend.

    We just dropped in for coffee and waffles this trip. On a previous visit we had a great meal in the restaurant. Friendly and helpful staff and a great atmosphere.

    Steak and eggs were very good! Maybe make a reservation if you want a table for brunch at the weekend

    Great place for brunch or for any meal. Healthy and delicious. Casual yet sort of upscale, but more casual.

    Very fresh and delicious dishes prepared with organic ingredient tasting so fresh you would want seconds! Try the miso glazed tuna for lunch 👌🏼

    The menu effortlessly hops from BC-flavoured French classics to Belgian moules-frites. Also known for serving the city's best tajine. [Eater 38 Member]

    Congolaise or mussels in coconut cream, smoked chili & lime is what I normally get with one of their wide selection of Belgian beer. Their dessert by far is the highlight - amazing dessert chef!

    Breakfast was excellent. Got a booth and was able to converse with old friends without being inundated with morning chatter. Tea was good.

    Same brunch menu as Medina's, and they take resos! Brunch starts at 8 am for those early birds - avoid the rush!

    A vibe most representative of the city: highly sophisticated, yet laid back. A bit pricey, but the premium is worth it.

    The Blue Fig. Oven roasted figs steeped in gin. Freeze &serve with a side of Danish blue...don't put this in your drink, nibble &sip. The sharpness of the cheese mellows out the figgy gin. Read more

    Very pricy for what they offer. Besides, I asked for a Paella and they brought me a Tagine. It wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t as good as Jam Cafe. Go to the next door and you’ll love it.

    The lounge is perfect for cocktails, mingling and cozy chatter -- but I prefer dining in the back (with the exposed brick and beautiful high ceilings). The mussels are a must.
