Ovaltine Cafe, Vancouver
I had breakfast at the Ovaltine for the first time, a couple of weeks ago. It was pretty good! I had a couple of eggs, sausages, hash browns and toast. I can't remember what the bill came out to, but it was really cheap. A cup of tea was $1. The decor/ambience is old school and run down diner, but it's clean inside. There are signs that say that you have to pay before you get your food - guess it goes with the neighbourhood :o)
Has anyone tried anything that's not on the breakfast menu? They have steak on their menu for something ridiculously cheap, like $6.99.
re: Sam Salmon
went there the other day and depite the fact that its cheap, a vancouver "institution" etc.. i can truly say it was awful ...lukewarm soup, crappy sandwich and altjhough it was only $4.50, a place like Hawker's delight and various other places in Chinatown prove that even in that price range if you actuallty care about your food you can put out a decent meal
