2465 E Hastings St, Vancouver, BC
So we went on Tuesday to finally check out The Red Wagon. We were excited because that place is so ridiculously popular and we had a rare opportunity to go on a Tuesday for brunch. Nonetheless, we bike up there and find a line up. On a Tuesday!! Who are these people?? Fuck that, we’re going to the Roundel Cafe.
The Roundel is a hole-in-the-wall diner in the Hastings-Sunrise area. It’s pretty cute inside, with arborite tables and built in swivel stools along the bar. The menu is classic diner food, but hippy-fied. As in, you can opt for brown rice instead of hashbowns, and the ketchup is home-made (no good).
We had the Huevos Rancheros and the Corned Beef Hash.
The Huevos was good but nothing too exciting. Same with the Hash, which wasn’t really hash at all but pan-fried taters and sliced meet.
Overall I like the place because I’m fond of hippy/healthy food. If that’s not your thing, maybe try someplace else…
