Home Breakfast Menu About Daisy Location & Hours

Welcome to Daisy...Sandwiches and Such!

You may already be familiar with the food, but what do you know about those charming people behind
the counter or hidden in the kitchen?

Brigitte was born in Montreal and David was born in North Vancouver. Although living on different coasts,
they experienced the same upbringing - in different languages! - as they both grew up watching their
parents run a family diner. Amid bussing tables and doing homework between customers, they both 
developed an appreciation for good food, a passion for cooking and a love for entertaining.

Their first jobs?  Obviously, you guessed it: in restaurants.

In 1991, Brigitte moved to Vancouver, but it is not until 1998 that David and Brigitte met - in a restaurant,
of course - where they were both working. Well... Brigitte was David's boss - some things just never change!
It did not stop David from making a bold move in 2000: he asked Brigitte to marry him and she said yes.
Soon after, they were blessed with their little princess, Charlotte Daisy. 

With the years fleeting, David started to feel the pressure: he would soon run out of time to fulfill his lifelong
dream of being his own boss.  So, he decided to take the plunge in 2010 and go where another Kovacic
had gone before: he opened his own family diner.  

Brigitte, never lacking on ideas and projects, had been lucky enough to have fulfilled one of her many dreams
by “feng shui-ing” the whole house (including closets and cupboards), the garden, the cars and even her
friends’ houses. She was happy that a family restaurant would give her the chance to pamper more people
than just her fabulous friends and family members. And of course, she would have the chance to “feng shui”
another place!

Obviously, a dream - even a lifelong one - does not become a reality without a lot of hard work and a few
setbacks. There were a few sleepless nights - about 300! - until the grand opening of “Daisy...Sandwiches
and Such
!” in May 2011.  

Since then, David and Brigitte have been thrilled to welcome you in their cozy, colourful second home -
with excellent breakfasts, original paninis, great soups and, of course,  friendly  smiles.

Come enjoy the dream with them today.  They will be pleased to see you back tomorrow!
