Angelina’s Dutch Café is making a move – but it isn’t going far.
The popular breakfast and brunch restaurant is moving from its current home at 960 Quayside Dr. into new digs in River Market at 810 Quayside Dr. It’s moving to the space that was the home of Wild Rice, which closed on Dec. 31.
“We have been bursting at the seams in our current location, so finding a new, larger space so close by in the wonderful River Market is a great move for us,” Eric Missouri, owner of Angelina’s Dutch Café, said in a press release. “After 17 years, as our customer base has grown, we’ve become so busy at our current space and really needed a larger location. This space at River Market is perfect for us and we know our customers will love that it’s directly facing the river.”
Angelina’s, a family-run restaurant that has been operating in New Westminster since 2002, serves contemporary and traditional Dutch cuisine, including pannekoek and waffles. It will continue to open at 6:30 a.m. daily at its new location.
The plan is for Angelina’s to close in its current location and reopen in River Market the next day – April 1. In addition to expanding its Western European-inspired menu to include freshly squeezed juices and freshly made soups, Angelina’s is embarking on plans to open for dinner with a brand new menu in the new location later this year.
“We are very excited to bring Angelina’s into River Market and are confident that our customers will appreciate having another popular, locally owned and operated restaurant to add to their choices at the market,” said Salim Hassan, property manager at River Market at Westminster Quay. “Angelina’s will be a wonderful addition to all we offer as a culinary destination.”
According to Hassan, Angelina’s will be taking over the entire 3,000-square-foot riverfront space where Wild Rice was located, which is almost three times the size of its current location.
