Had lunch at the Divan Kitchen in North Vancouver BC today, and they accepted their first bitcoin payment via blockchainexplorer on an iPhone. Now all they need is some decals for the window. If anyone is in the area I would definitely recommend paying them a visit.

Ah but how was the food?  Also someone should pass this along to Bitcoin Magazine so they can do an article or something.

The food is great, cool atmosphere and the pricing is completely reasonable. No real 'sales pitch' per say. The restaurant is operated by the owners, one of them I have gotten to know personally by eating there. The topic of bitcoin has come up more than a few times, and I would presume that he has become increasingly interested in the concept. So yesterday while I was having lunch I showed him how to setup the Blockchainexplorer app on his iPhone and then asked "can I pay with bitcoin?" to which he said "sure". I showed him how to generate a qr code, scanned it and transferred the funds.

If anyone wants to contact the restaurant the phone number for Divan Kitchen is in the link. Ask for Mark.

I just created a thread on reddit for this topic http://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/13q6so/north_vancouver_restaurant_accepted_my_bitcoin/
Mark is a reddit user so he can answer questions there.

I'll contact them and see if they can give an interview.

Too bad there's still nothing in Toronto though Sad

Awesome!  I'll have to get over there one day and try them out.  I just ordered 10 'bitcoin accepted here' stickers from http://cryptoanarchy.com/ so I'll give them one when they arrive.

Lol. This place takes one payment from someone they know in bitcoin and suddenly it is being put on maps and in magazines. I hope this guy is ready for more people trying to pay in bitcoin.

When a business decides to accept bitcoin, the bitcoin community spreads the word. What's so Lol about that?

I hope this guy is ready for more people trying to pay in bitcoin.

They have blockchainexplorer on an iPhone, so yes they are ready to process more bitcoin payments.

The advantage is that it'd almost be like mobile banking.
