Reviews for The Basic

Name change from Joes but the same great place if there’s no line it’s a really good breakfast option. I really don’t like going out for breakfast / brunch in Vancouver but if I’m forced to with friends I like this type of place with chill friendly servers a super fast kitchen and food done well. Mom got the pulled pork benedict and dad got the basic both loved it.

It was ok, our server was nice even though she gave us the bill when we never asked for it (one of my friends was still eating). Never asked if we needed something else or more coffee. BUT omg the rest of the servers were so annoying with their faces! Every time one of them walked by they looked at us like "please go". Until we realize that you have to pay at the counter. Taste of the food was ok. Place looks old. Apparently they only have 1 syrup and 1 hot sauce. Because full review
It's OK. A take on the local breakfast all day grill but trying to move it up scale a little bit. Organic coffee, fairly wide selection on the menu. I really like that the potatoes are done on the grill not deep fried which seems to be the standard in far too many places. That is just lazy. I usually have an omelette. Full points for freshness and size but always comes a bit too well lubricated with cooking oils. You won't get away from here cheap but if you need to fill full review
