Melville Cafe is owned by a couple who first came to Vancouver in the early 90s with two sons. Hoping to find the proper medical care for their oldest son they had left behind family and successful careers for health and prosperity in Canada. My name is Khoobun and I am their youngest daughter and only child born on Canadian soil. Watching the immigrant struggle from a young age, I am so proud of my parents adapting to the beautiful loving and friendly Canadian culture. In the past 20 years my parents business has gone from corner store to deli shop to a well known local cafe. Recently we have been receiving a lot of recognition from locals who never noticed our small cafe. I hope this recognition will exceed to this award. My mother is always so personable with every customer and adds love to every item on the menu. My father single handedly started his business and is beginning to watch his struggles pay off. Thank you for this opportunity and your time to read my nomination.
