Since opening in 2008, Café Medina has carved out a niche as a truly exceptional breakfast, lunch and brunch destination that effortlessly blends eclectic bistro fare, connoisseur-savvy coffee and sweet nourishment via the city’s best Belgian waffles.
While the name Medina has many interpretations, it was selected for its connotation to “radiant or enlightened city”. Indeed, this unique café quickly shone as one of the city’s most stylish additions, thanks to owner Robbie Kane’s pioneering attitude towards café culture and distinctive brand of enlightened hospitality — an ideal complement for the café’s instantly memorable, Mediterranean-inspired cuisine by beloved Executive chef Chris West.
As Kane explains it, Café Medina doesn’t simply serve food — he and his staff pride themselves on feeding the soul of each and every guest and providing them with sustenance in every way, shape and form. It’s this unique Medina mystique that has made the café a Vancouver institution and why its guests keep returning again and again.
In August 2014, Café Medina moved to a bright and spacious new home at 780 Richards Street in Vancouver's burgeoning Library District.The café’s expanded new quarters not only allows for increased seating capacity, an expanded bar, open kitchen, high ceilings and plenty of natural light, but also provided the opportunity to expand the Medina menu and offer an evening venue for private functions and special events.
