Food scene in Vancouver

“A vibrant market with a great view. Check out the market and pick up some items for a picnic in stanley park. The market has lots of artisan venders that won't disappoint. You can bike to the market or take the aquabus. Keep in mind on weekends in the summer this market gets very busy but still worth the trip, just consider going early to avoid some of the rush.”

“A cool brewhouse and restaurant in an old cannery. A huge variety of beer on tap; will satisfy any beer connoisseur. Our favourite is the "20 Napkin Burger" A great item to share and you will love the garnish on this burger...its another smaller burger. A very short walk from our front door (15 mins). And lots of opportunities to take photos of false creek as you walk.”

Breakfast Spot
“Highly recommended are the waffles and the fricassee. Waffles were nice and soft on the outside and tasted very fresh accompanied by various dip flavors. The fricassee was very tasty and had a good portion of side rib accompanied with a sun side egg cooked perfectly.”

Vegetarian / Vegan Restaurant
“The Naam Restaurant is Vancouver’s premier vegetarian restaurant. Begun as a small café in 1968, it has grown into a full service 24/7 Kitsilano landmark. We consistently win Reader’s Choice “Best Vegetarian” year after year in most major magazines and newspapers. Also voted “Best Late Night” restaurant, the Naam often is runner-up for “Best Salads” against the highest-end restaurants in the city. The menu is extensive. Starters include quesadillas, Tuscan nachos, organic hand-cut Yukon Gold fries with our famous miso gravy; or excellent salads, soups, and croissant melts with guacamole and cheese. For mains, there is a selection of enchiladas, stir-fries, veggie burgers and combination platters. The vegan Dragon Bowls are hugely popular as is our Thai Noodles. There is a full dessert menu: try the vegan raspberry chocolate cake or the Dutch apple-cranberry pie topped with Mario’s premium Italian Ice cream. There is also a range of delicious shakes, fresh juices, our own line of herbal teas, and of course organic coffees. We serve wine, and a good selection of bottled beers and beer on tap including organic Crannog draft. There is a full breakfast menu: pancakes with real maple syrup, huge fruit crepes with organic blueberry topping. omelettes, breakfast specials, and a wide variety of egg and vegan scrambled tofu options. We have the best vegetarian sausages in town. Breakfast is served from 6 am every day, until 11:30 am on weekdays, 1 pm on Saturdays and 2 pm on Sundays. We have a lovely open-air garden patio, a fireplace in winter, and live music every night from 7-10pm. To avoid a line-up, please come early. We take reservations weekdays (but not Friday evenings) for parties between 6 and 15 people. We accept Interac, Visa, MasterCard and Amex. While the Naam has a number of items that range from the $5 to $15 mark, what helps this all-veggie restaurant shine is the hearty portion sizes. You’d be surprised at how much you can fill up with their plate of veggies; we highly recommend trying their fries with extra miso gravy.”

“Beach side patio and local hot spot, very close to our property. The casual beach side sports bar has a the most popular patio in kits, right across the road from Kits beach. It’s always packed, so be prepared to wait for a spot, and those fish tacos will taste even better. Local Pro Tips: Great place to watch a sporting event.
