Description
This cafe is staffed by the owner-operator-server-host-chef Flavio, a fellow who grew up in the 'hood and has opened his own spot after decades working for others in the food service industry. He’s a truly nice guy and too busy to promote himself! What stands out about Flavio’s is the quality of the food at such reasonable prices (tax included pricing and full meal specials for around $8). The offerings are thoughtfully designed to be cooked fresh quickly without being “fast food”. Flavio shops for his ingredients locally ( a nice touch - his Mother, a retired pasta cook herself, is often helping out with the shopping and the food) and builds his daily offerings around the key sourced ingredients. If roast beef sandwiches are on offer, it’s because he has roasted the beef! Fresh spinach salads or side vegetables accompany the main courses such as lasagna, cannelloni, or roast chicken, and classic Italian flavour from basil, tomato, and garlic round out a delightful lunch or early dinner experience. Hearty soups and sandwiches are always on the menu. The location is ideal: just of Commercial Drive in an area zoned for light Industrial and Commercial, there are a lot of people who work in the area who are thrilled to finally have a nearby spot for a good meal. Even the pizza slices are prepared fresh to order! Espresso drinks too ... far better in quality, taste, and price than the “name-brand” joints.
