      A Gastown restaurant with several of the best slices of pie in Vancouver will soon be closing its doors.

      Acme Café, a restaurant serving comfort food with the feel of an old-fashioned diner, revealed on Instagram today (November 16) that it’s going out of business.

      “It is with very mixed feelings that we announce that Acme has been sold. The new owner will be opening with a new concept and Acme will be closing its doors, with November 28th being our last day,” it reads.

      “It has been the adventure of a lifetime and we wouldn’t change a thing, but now it’s time for us to start a new chapter. We will miss working with our incredible staff, visiting with our regulars, and all the out-of-towners who always came in to say hi, more than we can possibly say. You have become friends and family.

      “We have learned and loved, and lost (our minds a little) along this windy path, and to those that have supported us, we extend our sincerest gratitude. We will treasure this experience for all our lives, and we will miss you all.”

      Acme Café is located at 51 West Hastings Street near the intersection of Abbott Street.

      Earlier this year, it received a Georgia Straight "Golden Plates" readers' choice award for best breakfast in Vancouver. The mac and cheese is equally delicious.

      To our amazing regulars and supporters, It is with very mixed feelings that we announce that Acme has been sold. The new owner will be opening with a new concept and Acme will be closing its doors, with November 28th being our last day. It has been the adventure of a lifetime and we wouldn’t change a thing, but now it’s time for us to start a new chapter. We will miss working with our incredible staff, visiting with our regulars, and all the out-of-towners who always came in to say hi, more than we can possibly say. You have become friends and family. We have learned and loved, and lost (our minds a little) along this windy path, and to those that have supported us, we extend our sincerest gratitude. We will treasure this experience for all our lives, and we will miss you all. We wish you all the best, and hope you have a chance to come in and say bye.
