Choppers Diner (CLOSED AGAIN)

UPDATE (09/25/11): I haven’t seen with my own eyes, but rumour has it that they are permanently closed again. Sigh.

They’re back! Same owners. Same menu. Same great food. NEW location. Decorated in biker black, this space has a homier feel than the last – a rec room vibe. The fab front patio is an added bonus. I am only guessing that it’s much more modest size might mean much more modest rent. Which, I am hoping, means this time they are here to stay.

Even with the ever-so-small price increases, these are incredibly valued breakfasts. Note: Cash only. My English Breakfast came with 2 eggs, 3 sausages, garlicky roasted potatoes, 2 slices of whole wheat toast, parmesan grilled tomatoes and baked beans – all for $7.50. Be sure to ask for some of their homemade jam. I noticed that we ordered the exact same thing the first time we went, unintentionally. I guess old habits do die hard.

“Psst, hey, you folks lining up at Bon’s – over here.”

2545 Nanaimo Street
Breakfast hours: Tuesday to Friday 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Saturday/Sunday: 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Well worth travelling across town for fresh home-made organic food. Generous proportions, cooked to perfection and reasonably priced. Absolutely the best All-Day Breakfast in town. Still one of my favorite Burger joints. Their Daily Specials reflect the owners love of great food.

The food was good, but the coffee blows.
