Acme Cafe-Brunch and Pie

I have a friend who’s really into diners so we decided to check out Acme Cafe in Gastown. You can expect a line up here on the weekend and they only seat you when your whole party has arrived!

They have an open pastry case at the front filled with delicious goodies.

Breakfast is served all day Saturday and Sunday. My friend read somewhere that they give you free coffee! I’m not a coffee expert but it tasted finen to me.

We got seats at their “bar” area so I had a great view of the kitchen.

Acme CafeThe Baked Eggs Benny sounded unique with layers of English muffin, free-range eggs, ham and cheddar, oven baked and topped with hollandaise sauce with shredded redskin potatoes underneath.

The texture was bouncy and spongey and you get some saltiness from the ham and cheddar as well. It was not something you see everyday! The shredded potatoes underneath were not seasoned so it needed some ketchup or hot sauce to go with it.

Lastly, we had to try their pie! The Chocolate Coconut Cream Pie was light but chocolatey despite not having that much chocolate at the bottom. The crust was nice and buttery. Pies are $6.00 a slice so I thought the portion could be a bit bigger. Or they can give you a smaller plate so it doesn’t look as awkward…
