About Us

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 a East Van price.

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

Denis and our crew also create anywhere from 7-10 daily specials that Kirby emails out everday.

To be put on the daily special mailing list, please email specials@argocafe.ca or simply follow @argocafe on twitter.

You can view the past items on our daily specials page. Some past items are, duck confit, thai basil chicken stir-fry, pot au fue, seafood risotto rose sauce with goat cheese, yam fries poutine, bacon wrapped pork tender with grape compote, seared halibut N prawns with a coconut curry sauce.
