A veteran Vancouver daytime eats spot has broken its share of eggs over the years, and now it's breaking a few hearts.
Scandilicious, the Scandanavian-inspired brunch and lunch restaurant at 25 Victoria Drive, announced Tuesday (July 13) that they are closing down for good in just a few days.
"It has been an absolutely incredible ride for nearly a decade," laments Scandilicious owners in their closing notice shared to the restaurant's social media accounts.
"We have met so many amazing people, learned so much about the business and our community, and grown as a powerhouse women led trio. We've learned anything is possible with determination, a wicked set of rockstar staff and customers whom memories created with will last a lifetime."
Scandilicious specializes in traditional Scandanavian family recipes for all sorts of eats and treats, though the restaurant is beloved for its waffles, which they serve in four varieties - Brussels, Liege, Gluten-Free, and Vegan Gluten-Free - with an assortment of available toppings, savoury or sweet.
The restaurant also serves all-day breakfast dishes, with a midday shift to include lunch plates, like sandwiches and burgers.
In 2016, the Vancouver restaurant was featured on a kids-themed episode of Food Network's You Gotta Eat Here, featuring host John Catucci.
Scandilicious says its last day of business at the location will be Saturday, July 17, however, they are leaving fans with the hope that this is just farewell, not goodbye.
Operators say the restaurant "will take a small reprieve" while they reposition themselves "for a comeback." The restaurant urges Scandilicious lovers to follow them on Instagram for future updates.
