Mary’s on Davie is a retro-looking diner that’s located on Davie, several blocks from Burrard. I visited them during breakfast time. I just couldn’t resist ordering Chicken and Waffles whenever they’re on the menu, so of course I ended up getting it.
Chicken and Waffles ($17):
This consists of two small waffles sandwiching a large piece of fried chicken, and comes with your choice of side; I had their hashbrowns. The chicken was dark meat, and was tender and juicy; unfortunately, I found it to be very underseasoned. The waffles were a bit thick and chewy, but flavourful and seemed to contain pearls of sugar inside. It was quite sweet on its own, and didn’t really require any syrup. I really enjoyed the hashbrowns, which were very crispy and salted.
I quite enjoyed my visit to Mary’s. The dish was fairly good; the service quite friendly and prompt. Although I haven’t tried any of their burgers and other items off of their lunch/dinner menu, I think that this diner is definitely worth checking out for their breakfast items alone.
