Vancouver, Argo Cafe
So, this morning I made the trek to Argo Cafe for breakfast. I enjoyed a fantastic steak and eggs. My steak was an extraordinarily thick tenderloin, served with two eggs, hashbrowns and a couple of slices of multigrain toast for $9.95, if I recall correctly. The food was expertly prepared.
It's a pity that this place is only open between 7:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m., Monday to Friday, and that it is in the middle of an industrial area (great for the guys working around there, though); boy-oh-boy is it good.
Argo Cafe is located at 1836 Ontario Street, a short walk from the Main Street Skytrain station.

I love the Argo, a gf and I got pretty drunk really early in the summer and she crashed at my place and we were both up by 6am the next morning. We made tea, after that we were awake enought to want food. We went to the Argo and it was exactly what we wanted, plus I LOVE their hot sauce. Haven't tried anything there for lunch yet though. WIll have to keep it in mind.
