4016 Hastings Street, Burnaby (map)
I have tried at least 2x to visit Chez Meme after M recommended it to me. However this is one huge problem, it's closed every 2nd Saturday, so far luck has not been on my side. Since J and I wanted to plan a brunch together, Chez Meme has once again came up as a contender. This time I called way ahead to ensure that it was open for the Saturday we intended to go.
The waitress asked if we would mind the "window bar" seats, we happily accepted since it means we don't have to wait. The restaurant was not very big, it can accommodate about 25-30 people at a time. One look at the diner, you know this is definitely a local's favorite base on how relax and at home they seem to be.
Both R and J ordered coffee ($2.25), I just had water. Since R like coffee with milk, they brought over a cute little jug just for the milk. The same was done for people who prefer cream, such as J's coffee. Also, I think the coffee here is unlimited, as both R and J's coffee was constantly refilled.
Would I recommend this small cozy French restaurant, the answer is 'Yes', because not only do they have good food, quality ingredient, but they also had great service, despite the heavily French accented English. Just remember one thing, it's open every other Saturday and closed Sunday. According to my calculation, it should be open this Saturday. :)
