Peter of AHA MEDIA says

Today we dropped in on a little cafe called  The Baker and The Chef on Cambie St in Vancouver

We ordered breakfast, it was noon and they were still serving breaky, bonus! We got the Ham and Cheese Omelet  and “All Day Breakfast” (sausage, eggs, hashbrowns, and toast).

The servings were huge as we couldn’t even finish our food. The ham and cheese omelet was stuffed with so much meat! Very delighted to see this 🙂

The price was great, the server was very attentive and polite, and the atmosphere was excellent.

We would certainly go back and also recommend this place all our friends! 🙂

 Community Art Project Fundraiser: In addition to regular supplies for applied art programs at Oppenheimer, we will supply small wooden block canvasses for participants to donate art for the fundraiser. Participants willing to donate their work to our fundraiser will be supporting local artists in the community. Through sales of these small paintings, prints, collage, text, drawings, etc. during the Gachet & Oppenheimer Park Community Art Show opening reception (as well as the sales from the Art Cart) we hope to raise the money needed to support a regular slot for the Art Cart/artists at the Sunday Downtown Eastside Neighbourhood (DNC) Street Market & Fairs.
