Since opening in 2009, Cafe Medina has carved out a niche as a truly exceptional breakfast, lunch, and weekend-brunch destination that effortlessly blends eclectic bistro fare, connoisseur-savvy coffee and sweet nourishment via the city’s best belgian waffles. Cafe Medina doesn’t simply serve food – Kane and his staff pride themselves on feeding the soul of each and every guest and providing them with sustenance in every way, shape, and form. It’s this signature Medina mystique that has made the cafe a Vancouver institution, and is the reason its guests keep returning again and again.
