Argo Cafe

We are a diner that has been around since 1954 and has since evolved.

Sometime in 2004, Chef Denis Larouche and brother in-law Kirby Wong came together and turned this greasy spoon into something like no other in Vancouver. We offer a wide variety of dishes from grilled cheese sandwiches, real beef burgers (unprocessed),  and roasted turkey clubhouse  to a sesame crusted tuna papaya salad, sirloin steak with peppercorn sauce to even full sized salad meals. This is “slow food, FAST!!!”  All for an affordable price.

Downtown food, at an East Van price.

A must try is our conqueso, hand cut fries, carbonara, and the complimentary soup that comes with every meal.
