The Elbow Room Café (1 hr)

Vancouver Elbow Room
A really unique place to have your breakfast or lunch is at The Elbow Room Café. They say: ‘food and service is our name, abuse is our game’. So prepare to be offended. The staff is specialised in (well-rehearsed) verbal abuse that they hurl with every cup of coffee. Even a lot of celebrities appreciate the theatrics, proofed by the framed photos of Hollywood customers at the walls.

They are open daily from 8 am to 4 pm for breakfast and lunch. Elbow Room is a bizarrely unique brunch spot that will collect a donation for AIDS charities if you fail to clean your plate.
You will find Elbow Room at 560 Davie Street. More information can be found at their website.
