This isn't a review, it's a public service announcement. The Fresko Cafe at 642 Yates Street, between Douglas & Broad, formerly the site of Great Cannon Pizza and several other unspeakably bad pizzerias, is offering a $3.99 ham, eggs, hashbrown & coffee breakfast special. You read that right - $3.99 for a greasy spoon breakfast in the heart of the Garden City.
The Fresko is a small, low-budget affair but the food is perfectly serviceable and the menu extends beyond breakfast with hamburgers, omelettes ($5.99) and donairs, to name a few. They're open until 3am on both Friday & Saturday night although you're not going to get late-night breakfast unless it's a slow night.
Check it out before it's gone. Not that the special is a limited time offer but rather it's likely to soon be replaced by a condo, ladies-wear boutique or maybe a timeshare made out of fair-trade coffee beans.
