Extra terrestrially tasty


By virtue of my bus stop’s location and my perpetual state of tardiness, I have recently spent untold minutes pondering the mysteries of the Purple Planet Pizza alien and the joint it represents…the crudeness of the cutout and the signage, the incongruity of the menu with its wide variety of crepes and pizzas. 

Turns out I should have spent less time thinking and more time eating.  I can’t speak for the crepes (yet), but the pizza is delicious and creative, on par with gourmet parlours like The Flying Wedge.  The difference here is that a generous slice will only set you back 2 bucks.  Add a can of pop for 75 cents.  Heck, if you’re sharing with your dog like me, (or not), splash out on 2 slices with pop for $4.5o.  These prices even include Harper’s share!  I guess I’ve solved the mystery of why they don’t have any extra cash to spend on ambiance, but you won’t hear any complaints from me.

    You’re bang-on. I thought I was the only non-high-school-kid to go in there and buy pizza. Apparently I’m not alone. Nothing like eating a couple of slices on a Saturday afternoon after a bike ride, zoning out flipping a Georgia Straight and watching the people saunter by on Broadway. A “Kits Moment” if I ever had one.

    I’ve been a long time customer, since back in the day when it was called ‘Art and Pizza’. I balk at their prices now, but I guess an increase of 50c over 8 years is nothing to complain about (yeesh, that seems like quite a long time!)
