Cafe Medina Review

Cafe Medina is a lovely option for Mediterranean brunch in downtown Vancouver because of its charming ambiance. Polished wood, lights, and bright windows add to this spot’s cozy cafe vibes. However, the location is tucked into a side street which might be harder to find at first. They are always very busy, especially near the weekend. My friend and I were not able to get seats at a table so instead opted to sit at the bar area where the music was louder than usual. The waffles are amazing but the other day we ordered two different dishes to try. I had Le Complet comprised of sunny side up eggs with a tangy salad and flat iron steak slices served with crostini that had a light dusting of cheese on top. That particular dish showed fabulous presentation and was a delightful mix of flavours. My lovely friend ordered the Paella which came in a skillet pan and was spicy; the warmth of the rice was nice as the weather was quite chilly outside. Overall Cafe Medina is a good place to try if you are visiting this particular city and I will be coming back for their matcha latte and waffles next time!
