Amelia Cafe on 6th street in New Westminster is a casual diner with affordable prices, friendly service and a clean atmosphere.

Like so many Lower Mainland greasy spoons, Amelia’s Cafe serves a standard mixed fare of Western classics and Chinese food. The dining room is small and decorated with an interesting mix of retro and stuff you might find from an Asian family’s home.

We ordered two breakfast specials. For Tre, two eggs over easy with two sausage links and French toast. The eggs were cooked to order and the sausages were surprisingly good — not pan fried to death. The French toast was nothing special, but still nice and fluffy.
For myself, scrambled eggs with hash browns and rye toast. The hash browns were the standouts in this dish with real chunks of potatoes pan fried making certain bits super crispy.

Our bill including taxes, tips and two coffees came to just under $19. The price is right, the service friendly, and the food decent overall. Amelia’s is a greasy spoon that’s just a notch up from a hole in a wall. But if you’re looking for a simple breakfast with no frills and easy on the coin, then you’ve come to the right place. Remember to pay a visit to the bank machine, though, Amelia’s is cash only.
Perfect for: A simple breakfast for a simple price.
