Commune Cafe Dinner Menu
Perhaps it was the adoration of the chic open space concept, or the sustainable and organic ingredients, I wanted it to succeed. For the chicness of the space, we were hoping for creative sizzling dishes, alas the food was too simple, lacking depth of flavour.
It is a great casual place to relax with friends and sip on drinks, their liquor selection is quite decent. The large covered and heated patio is a sweet spot for yaletown people watching, as I write this a muscle man wearing a T-shirt 5x’s too small walks by with his rat looking poodle.
Started out with Baba ghanoush and Flat bread -$6. In terms of value I recommend this dish similar to their hummus. Baba ghanoush, is an roasted egg plant dip, this lacked any flavour. It tasted like I was eating olive oil and boiled eggplant. The Iranian flat bread with sesame was light and crispy.
Followed by the Portobello and Goats cheese sangak Iranian flatbread -$12, only available on their dinner menu which starts at 5PM. The flat bread was soggy, the flavours was too simple, it didn’t give me a buzz and have me guessing “hmm..what other ingredients are in here other than the portobello and goat cheese?”
Finishing with the Butter Tart -$2, the pastry was not light or flaky and the filling was missing yet again another layer of flavour.1002 Seymour Street
