“the South Terminal's little known secret”

Restaurant details
Reviewed 10 September 2016

The Southside Cafe is located just 2 blocks East from the YVR South Terminal on an indiscreet dead-end road which I would have never found except for my friends. We had occasion to enjoy a wonderful breakfast, co-owner Sarver was such a wonderful host. Jan enjoyed the traditional bacon and eggs while I munched on a bacon, egg, tomato and cheese sandwiched within two slices of a wonderful cranberry bread. I understand from Sarver that their primary business comes from catering to private and corporate fixed wing aircraft (of course the offerings much be top notch. There are 6 parking stalls in front of the cafe reserved for patrons. I would recommend this cafe without reservation

We were looking for a place for a quick bite before we picked someone up at the Airport.
Our GPS led us to Southside Cafe. We were disappointed to see it was not open. As it happened the owner was just walking up and invited us in, saying he could make us something. We had a nice chat and a good sandwich, before being on our way.

Fantastic soups and sandwiches! Staff are friendly and the service is good, but the food makes this little out of the way restaurant worth looking for.

If you find yourself on the South side of the Vancouver airport around breakfast or lunch time, turn right off the main road to go towards the South Terminal, go past London Air, and turn right again to find the Shell FBO (Fixed Base Operator) and the South Side Cafe is right there.

I got the today's special that was a chicken wrap with the soup of the day (carrot) and it was good. The cookies were also very good. It is not expensive.

Worth finding, this little cafe. Great food--soups, sandwiches, daily special, etc.
Friendly staff. Daily soups are worth the drive alone.
