Located in Gastown at 55 Powell street The Birds and The Beets is tucked away just off Maple Tree Square, the main intersection in the neighbourhood. Open during the day it offers everything you’d expect from a cafe but done right, with a breakfast menu, salads, and freshly baked breads for their sandwiches. With plenty of natural light, brick, lots of greenery, and thought out decor the vibe is right. Thursday through Saturday in the evenings the cafe closes and in the back half of the room and re-opens as Juice Bar, a natural wine bar & shop – highly recommend if you get the chance. We stopped in for a bite during lunch and had the Chicken Sandwich & Soft Scrambled Egg Breakfast Sandwich.
