Medina Cafe, 556 Beatty Street in Crosstown Vancouver. Unique food & amazing service!

Medina Cafe, 556 Beatty St, Crosstown Vancouver

I was privileged to get a seat in the Medina Cafe this morning with my Girlfriend. On a typical drive by of 556 Beatty Street there is what looks like a small huddle going on out side of the front door. This is the group of patiently waiting die-hard customers wanting to fill this small, warm room with extremely polite & professional staff & amazingly unique food. To give you an idea of our selection for this mornings brunch meal we had:

$15 Fricassé (served all day)
  2 fried eggs, braised short ribs, roasted potatoes, caramelized onions, arugula, applewood cheddar. Grilled foccacia.


Oeufs Cocottes
  Baked eggs, smoked sockey salmon, artichoke, cream cheese.Tomato pepperdew dill salad. Grilled foccacia.


1X 12oz. $3.95 & 1X 16oz. $4.30

Medina has a great Heritage feel in the room by way of a huge exposed brick feature wall & exposed cedar beams lining the roof. This is part of the attraction I believe, being on Beatty street & all. This street is very well known in Downtown Vancouver for having its street lined with extremely sought after & high end heritage converted Loft buildings, the likes of Bowman Lofts, 540 Beatty, 518 Beatty 550 Beatty & more.

Medina is a fantastic place to relax in a tightly packed well appointed room for a great meal & the ever so wonderful 16oz Lavender Latte. I had never had this before visiting the Medina cafe for the first time about 9 months ago. I highly recommend this venue to anyone wanting something a little different while visiting Crosstown Vancouver.
