An ace for Acme!
Acme Cafe has been on my list of "restaurants to try" for gosh-knows-how-long, and would've continued to stand as a pending restaurant-to-try had it not been for a d.c of mine who recently raved about it. Without a hesitation, I immediately up-ed Acme on my priority list and was finally able to pay it a visit today :)
|Grilled Turkey Panini, Broccoli Slaw, Potato Chips|
|Veggie Sandwich...mmm goat cheese|
My d.c immediately gravitated towards the Veggie Sandwich which was comprised of goat cheese, portobello mushroom, peppers, zucchini, sun-dried tomato basil mayo on a grilled Ciabatta panini. It too, was delicious - with the goat cheese reigning as the stand-out ingredient. We also ordered a side of Mac and Cheese (my new fave 'comfort food') and boy, did it not disappoint. There was just the right amount of cream, cheese and perfection, topped with tiny sprinkles of breadcrumbs and a thin layer of cheddar cheese, I immediately felt like I was in a comfort food utopia.

Casual and cool (although the server forgot to ring in my Mac and Cheese order
Fair and reasonable - $4.25 for the side of Mac and Cheese, sandwiches range from $8-12
Nice, modern-looking diner with very wide and comfortable seating, open-kitchen/prep area
Yay: Drop in for a nice lunch, brunch or even dinner! Great selection of paninis, classic diner foods, milkshakes, pies....and even peanut butter sandwich cookies!
Nay: Located in an area where Gastown meets Sketch Town, Parking
