What You'll Get
Winston Churchill was famous for the high standards he applied to alcohol, quipping that "Liquor is quicker, but get me a single malt scotch with moon rocks in it! I'm the English president!" Be like Ol' Winnie with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of burgers, brews, and more at The Cambie Pub. This Groupon is only valid for redemption at The Cambie Pub's Gastown location. In addition to food and drinks, it can be used for the pub's merchandise.
The Cambie Pub's history dates back to 1897, and the menu itself pulls from classic pub-fare traditions, with a slate of burgers, sandwiches, and other munchables for Cambie customer consumption. Starters include poutine ($5.75), yam fries ($5.25), and a pound of chicken wings ($9.95), available in a variety of spiced-up sauces. Seek revenge on dream-haunting bisons with the buffalo burger ($8.95), or opt for the herbivore-friendly veggie burger ($9.25), bedecked in pesto, red peppers, and swiss cheese. Straight-forward pub provisions include fish and chips ($8.75) and chicken strips and fries ($8.95). Weekend breakfasters can devour french toast ($6.25) or go for gastronomic glory with the Breakfast of Champions ($8.50), featuring two eggs, bacon, ham, sausage, hash browns, and toast. This Groupon can also be used toward The Cambie Pub's house specials, such as the beloved burger and brew combo ($7.50).
The Cambie Pub was named the "Best Place for Cheap Beer" by Georgia Straight in 2009, and it lives up to the honour with an arsenal of cost-friendly and liver-enlivening alcohol, with pints starting at $3.75 and jugs starting at $11.25. Hit the patio and hobnob with some of the international travellers staying at the hostel above the bar, or politely make conversation with the ghosts of the Prohibition-era bootleggers who used to frequent the joint with grub and beer at The Cambie Pub.
