DINER: Sean Heather’s “Everything Cafe” Closes, Could Re-Open As Creperie In April

by Andrew Morrison | The Everything Cafe has closed down after three years at 75 East Pender (next to the Wing Sang building). The cafe seemingly did a brisk enough trade, but not enough for owner Sean Heather, who plans a rebrand and reopening, possibly as soon as mid-April. He’s thinking about doing a new creperie concept, which would be open from 8am to 9pm with coffee, wine and beer. Quality crepes are few and far between in Vancouver, so – pre-supposing that it’s good – this is a win. Downside/upside: those who feel robbed of the Stumptown coffee hook-up that the Everything Cafe so dependably provided (that would be me) can get sorted out nearby at the recently opened Rainier Provisions.

  1. I had been a few times but honestly, baked goods and savoury
    offerings left much to be desired.
    Truth be told, I’m surprised SH didn’t fold the tent or change the concept earlier
    It is to me, just another one of these places that look good but the food
    is mediocre at best.

  2. The rest of the portfolio is much of a muchness, shame he couldnt let another bright spark do something with it.

  3. Well, maybe it would have done better if he’d opened the dang place on Sundays… I went there as a new customer and was never able (or willing) to go back because the web site told me it was open on a sunday….

  4. I really think (properly done) crepes with great coffee for the tastiest cafe au laits would do quite well around here. Looking forward to some news!
