1018 Commercial Dr, Vancouver, BC
The Reef has been around for a long time at its Main St. location, and just a few years ago a second location opened up on Commercial Dr.
The Reef has always been a fun spot. Decor is like a tiki hut/surf shop/beach shack, the music is reggae and they specialize in delicious rum cocktails available by the pitcher.
The Reef is a Caribbean restaurant, but it also makes a great breakfast, one of my favorites on the Drive. One of the best things about eating at The Reef is that they bring you these things called “Johnny Cakes” at the beginning of every meal. Johnny Cakes are these amazing little balls of deep fried dough… sort of like a donut hole, but more savory. And they come with coconut butter. They probably have about a million calories per ball, but don’t worry they only bring you one per person.
Thanks for breakfast Reef! It’s been too long….
