Diner classics in mammoth portions at cheap and cheerful pricesÑDeacon’s Corner has all that and more, but the real reason to roll in on a weekend morning is for the buttermilk pancakes. They ladle ’em out big, stack ’em high, and throw on a side of bacon, sausage, or ham, for $9.95. The location (corner of Main and Alexander, on the edge of Gastown) brings in a happy mix of lawyers and animators, young families, hungover party kids, blue-collars squatting at the counter, and packs of skinny-jeans. Breakfast not your thing? Perch on a classic chrome-ring barstool and tuck into mac ’n’ cheese or a hefty garden burger.
