It’s a fact that eating at airports all over the world is more expensive than other areas of the city. So for those travelling to or from Vancouver, this small café near the Vancouver International Airport can be a lifesaver. You’ll see the huge awning on the side of Grant McConachie Way, just before passing the gas station. This prime location was most likely built for the neighbouring local businesses, but is also an excellent stop for travellers.
This pit stop serves up food that is both basic and appetizing. There are ready made items sitting at the counter, so take a look there before peeking up at the large menu. The main fare includes meat sandwiches, like ham and cheese, while a veggie option is also available. Prices aren’t dirt cheap, but they beat the costs at the airport by a long shot. A complete meal with drink can be had for under $15.
The main wheeling and dealing here is by the lunch crowd from the surrounding businesses. At other times, the café is not usually full and a nice, quiet meal can be enjoyed. The staff often consists of the owner and one other employee, who are friendly and helpful. The café itself has basic décor and furnishings, and is outfitted more like a cafeteria than a restaurant. Tables are well spaced, leaving room for all patrons, even if they look very retro in style.
