Our waiter was exceptional and friendly ! He was on top of it. We were the very first table to arrive. We ordered chicken and waffles - chicken was well battered! Crunchy but light and super juicy ! Steak and eggs were excellent and I wouldn’t have thought to have Kim chi fried rice with that! So Vancouver - all ethnic dishes go! Pulled pork Benny YES .. all good! All smiles! Will be back on a weekday! We delayed for a year or two because we couldn’t get in last time and didn’t want to wait.

As a breakfast place I thought it was a bit too dark, but a nice ambience. The service was less than expected --- coffee came, but without milk, then when we asked for milk, it didn't come for a long time and when we got it, we didn't have any spoon to mix it. Food was okay.

After hearing so much hype about Catch 122 Cafe & Bistro, I'm glad I finally had the chance to try it! Although I've had better Chicken & Waffles elsewhere, the Squash French Toast and Pulled Pork Shoulder Eggs Benny were absolutely incredible!

Menu was true to the theme, and everyone enjoyed their choice. I found the noise level rather high, making it a bit hard to hear the conversation at our table, but it could also be the din from the core lunch time crowd. I enjoyed my chicken n waffles, and would definitely go again to try some of the other items!

There's only one catch at Catch 122, which is that it's very popular and this can mean a busy floor and a short wait for a table. I booked (recommended) but also showed up early and enjoyed the great flavours of the bulgogi hanger steak with kim chi, the decadence of the crisp parmesan fries, while my partner greatly enjoyed the harvest hash. The coffee is great, the range of drinks is good, and the whole experience is great. For the most relaxing brunch, get there a little early, but anytime is good and their flavour combinations are worth multiple visits.

Music was loud in a cavernous, echo-y space over a lunch meeting. Struggled to hear each other. Service, atmosphere and food was great, but overpriced for brunch, ie. $14 avo-toast with only one slice and one egg, and a tiny spray of side greens? Loved it, but c'mon.

The service and food were outstanding. I arrived early for a reservation (without my complete party), and they were happy to seat me early. Our server was attentive, making sure our waters were topped up, and also giving recommendations for food. Would happily return next time I’m in Vancouver!

My friend and I chose this place to catch up over brunch - I ordered the avocado toast and mango mimosa and she ordered the cauliflower benny with a caesar drink. We enjoyed the food, it was delicious so we definitely recommend. It’s a casual dine on a hot day (:

Second time I’ve been, and again fantastic! Veggie hash is delish, as is the Cauliflower Benny, and chicken & waffles. Cool atmosphere, super kind wait staff. Great coffee (Stumptown - yum!). I’ll definitely be a repeat customer.

Took over 1hour after ordering for the food to arrive. It was not even busy inside as it was a weekday early afternoon. Empty coffee cups were not cleared and water was not refilled. Food was good and reasonably priced but the kitchen speed needs to improve.

Overall food was excellent!
We did have to wait 45 min for our food, which we did not mind at all. The only thing we didn’t like, was when the wait staff blamed “the new guy” for causing the kitchen to be slow. I don’t think it’s fair to blame someone who’s new & learning in the kitchen for the delay (they could’ve scheduled/someone with more experienced to pick up the slack if they know they’re busy all the time) ... the new guy may be the cause, but the guests don’t have to know about it.

The food smells, looks, and tastes delicious.
We had the Pork Jowl Breakfast Sandwich with a side of parmesan, smoked aioli fries and the Smoked Pork Shoulder Benny with an extra serving of meat.
I would have given 5/5 stars for service but they somehow forgot our order but made it up to us, so therefore 4/5 stars.
We can wholeheartedly recommend this place to everyone! I'ts a nice place with a friendly staff.

PS. sometime in March they will be open in the evenings as well.

Booked few days ahead for 10 people, received confirmation right away. An email notification closer to date. I received a call from Catch 122 few hours before the set time to confirm our seating and to remind us that they will keep our table for us for 15minutes in case we didn't arrive on time- all these were great and helpful. We arrived just 2-3 minutes early, we were greeted nicely, and they had our table ready right away. The service was very nice and quick, everyone was friendly, the food was plated beautifully, tasted delicious, and priced reasonably. I like coming back to Catch 122 - it's always nice to bring a different group of friends, and each time were positive experiences. Thank you for great service, wonderful atmosphere, and tasty food! -Pat

Great value for $$. The was delicious and loved the wine on tap. We hope you might be open for dinner in the future, more regularly. It was a bit noisy--so adding some more sound proofing material would make it more intimate and easier to talk. Thanks and looking forward to visiting again.

Out server was great! He was attentive and kind. I ordered chicken waffle. Chicken was juicy and nicely cooked. Waffles were soft and I sensed flavour of yeast which I liked. It looked a bit too simple tho. Wish there were side of veggies or something came with the dish. Oh and I loved the plate! I like restaurants use good plates. My friend ordered One of the boozy coffe drinks and it was so good. It was my first time visiting Catch122 and I will definitely come back.

Celebrated 2 friends birthday and did the dine-out menu. Very disappointed with the service and the booking through Open Table as none of my request about the birthday celebration was being taken care of. Food was decent but as soon as we were finished, they gave us the bill and once we paid, no more water for us, zero service after. Meh.

Went for dine out Vancouver 2019. Food was excellent, they had a drink pairing as well that complemented each dish perfectly. After booking we heard that they mainly do brunch but the chef blew it out of the water for dinner. Will be returning to try their brunch.
