We had a great dinner, casual dinner. The food was delicious, the service was prompt, and we enjoyed the energy of the people there. By the way, the Chewies that I am reviewing is in Kitsilano (mispelled above).

I've been here twice for brunch now and both times left super happy. I highly recommend the chicken and waffles and if you're going to make a Sunday Funday out of it - order the bottomless mimosas...because bottomless mimosas, need I say more!

Delicious food which flavours complement one another, I would high suggest getting the pork belly at was quite possibly my favourite bit of food I've had in the past month. Atmosphere was chill but relatively loud. Great service though.

Kitsilano is one of Vancouver's most transformative
neighbourhoods. With a long history of coffee culture
and poetry readings, its days of flower children and
buskers may be long-gone, but not without leaving
