Nestled between the concrete jungle of downtown Maple Ridge is newly opened Chameleon Cafe.

From the outside, it looks similar to the rest of the street. When you walk inside, the world around is transformed. Chameleon is an upscale New York City/Paris style tapas bar.

The exquisite woodwork alongside the white leather in the seating areas, give the cafe a chic feel that is unpretentious and welcoming. A long arched staircase leads to a cozy balcony seating area. Eight tables elegantly set and ready for a meeting or party. With another eight tables on the main floor, Chameleon caters to smaller crowds with big appetites.  

'The Cuban' sandwich showcases pulled pork, ham, Swiss cheese, dill, mustard and mayo served on your choice of bread (including gluten free for a $2 extra charge). It is served with a side of fries or salad for $12. 

If you are looking for something a little more exotic. Try the 'Lobster macaroni and cheese' served topped with sourdough breadcrumbs for $15.  The food presentation is amazing.  From the personal french fry baskets to the pristine white geometric plates. It is all a symphony in perfection.

Not looking to dine, how about some wine? Perhaps a glass of Hennessy while catching a game on their television. Chameleon has you covered for that as well. A great selection of premium, signature and domestic beverages to choose from. All reasonably priced.

You've wined. You've dined. Now it's time for dessert. A verbal dessert menu to finish off the experience.  A vast array of decadence to entertain any palate. My personal favorite Tiramisu was served with fresh raspberries and a raspberry coulee. The texture is dense but light with the luxurious taste of espresso and marscapone.

Think this is just for adults? Nope, they have a great kids' menu as well. 

Overall, this is one restaurant that is a true class act. 

Open seven days a week. Monday - Friday from 8:00am-10:00pm and Saturday from 9:00am-10:30pm and Sunday 10:00am-10:00pm. 

They offer breakfast, lunch and dinner menus. Free Wi-fi is also offered for all patrons. Chameleon also offers group bookings.
