Located along the boarder of West and East hastings (between Gastown and China town), Acme Cafe is an American style diner that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. The restaurant is very casual with booths, counters and bar stool seating. It looks like a place you would bring a foreign friend visiting America for the first time. Think a more neutral-coloured Dennys.
I liked the food but I thought the prices were a little high. For lunch, I ordered the shrimp melt and shared a side and paid $18.00 (tax & tip included).
What I ordered:
Shrimp Melt 5/5
- Shrimps, roasted peppers, and onions open faced and topped with Jack cheese. The ciabatta was soft and went perfectly with the melted cheese and the soft texture of the shrimps. If you like grilled cheese sandwiches, you would like this. All of their sandwiches come with a side of chips, coleslaw and a pickle.
Mac n cheese on the side 3/5
- The cheese wasn’t as thick and creamy as I would have liked. The texture is more soft than chewy and stringy.
- Servers were polite but not especially attentive. It took me a while to get their attention so I could ask for the bill.
