Soupspoons Parisian Bistro
This addition to the Kitsilano and downtown dining scenes is inspired by those small Parisian bistros that make food like you've never tasted. If you're craving a Croque Monsieur (CAD5.75) or bisque (CAD2.95-7.50), you've found the right place. The decor is modern and spare, with stools and a long counter. The varied fresh soups are extremely tasty, and all go for CAD2.95, CAD4.35 and CAD7.50 for small, medium and large respectively. You will also find salads (CAD2.80-3.80), pastries (CAD0.75-2.40) and baguettes for indulging. Continental breakfasts are also served.
The soup was great, as was the bread once it was grudgingly given to us after we asked for it twice. Incorrect change was given and it seemed the young man at the counter seemed to have difficulty distinguishing between nickels and quarters. Tables were not clean - the same young man removed a few dishes when there were no customers and then sat down with a buddy to watch the TV, leaving many dishes and many more crumbs on the tables. The sound was too loud and irritating but when asked to turn it down, the young man complied exactly that way - a very little.
Perhaps it is difficult to get good help on a beautiful Sunday afternoon in September.
We do recommend the food but there are many other places in Kitsilano that have similar menus and, hopefully, better service and ambience.
