  1. Hey, great food truck idea! One thing though, are you ever looking into being open on at least one weekend day? I know a bunch of people who have been waiting for a grilled cheese truck including myself, and now we have found you but no one works downtown and your hours are only during the week. Please think about it because you would have even a bigger following if there was at least one weekend day option as well!!!


    • Kate!
      I’d love to feed you on the weekend! I’m currently training staff, so I can have them run it without me. I’ve got a year and a half year old at home, and have reserved weekends for her only! I’ll let you know when we’re ready to fly!

  2. Hey!! Cindy it was so nice to meet you today and I really loved what I have for lunch!!! I think you have one of the best food trucks in Vancouver!!


  3. Cindy and Crew! I had a great experience with you today and I thought I should pass it on to you. My niece was visiting and we decided to find a street food vendor. We walked around and looked at a lot of menus and picked your truck based on the enthusiasm of those in the very long line and the yummy menu. We were not disappointed. Great food and service! We shared a generous grilled cheddar on multigrain. A special thanks to everyone who made my very shy niece feel comfortable and important while she made her order. I noticed everyone who came to order or pick up, was acknowledged and left with a smile. It seemed to come naturally to all of you. I think it ( and the awesome food) has a lot to do with the people flocking to your truck, while the others had steady yet short lines… Way to go and Thank you!

  4. Hi Cindy – Tried your food experience just by chance for the first time today and was pleasantly surprised! I didn’t realize it was ‘cheese only’ on the sandwiches but the young woman taking the order filled me in and it was all good. Continued success with your operation. I felt a little guilty watching you working so hard preparing all that food. All the best, Dave
