Max’s Bakery & Delicatessen Review

Sister store to Stuart’s on Granville Island and the one at Oakridge, Max’s Deli & Bakery is located on Oak Street and West 15th Ave. The company, which has been in business since 1949, also has two locations at YVR airport, and had a previous location on Cambie – now closed. Max’s comfortable and casual […]

Cheesecake Etc. Review

Whenever we crave cheesecake, we always gravitate towards Cheesecake Etc. My sister-in-law first introduced us to this little gem years ago when we’d visit her from Victoria. Tucked away on South Granville, just before the Granville Street Bridge, lies this quaint little dessert spot. It’s a great date night place, with dark and romantic lighting, […]

Paul’s Place Omelettery Review

Paul’s Place Omelettery is, as you would expect, famous for their omelettes. The restaurant always seems to receive great reviews on food blogs, Urbanspoon, Yelp – and even the Lonely Planet ranked it #17 out of 600 things to do in Vancouver. With such high accolades, we decided to check out Paul’s. With its green […]

Innocent Coffee Review

  We’ve driven past Innocent Coffee a number of times, and I was always drawn to its little stand alone two-level building and “innocent” lamb logo. On this occasion we finally decided to check it out – and were glad we did! (Bonus: Free parking is provided out front, which is always a nice touch […]

Patisserie Lebeau Review – Authentic Belgian Waffles

I absolutely adore waffles – especially the traditional Belgian varieties. My maiden name originates from Belgium, so perhaps loving waffles is in my blood? Regardless, I’m always on the lookout for tasty waffle offerings around this city and during our travels. Did you know that you can find authentic Belgian waffles in Vancouver? Yes, it’s […]

Suika Izakaya Review

We attempted to make a reservation at Suika on a previous occasion, but the restaurant was fully booked. Fortunately we managed to secure a table for an early seating last Saturday evening (after our long walk, lunch at Taco Shack, and dessert at Dairy Queen in Kits). Sister restaurant to the famous Kingyo on Denman, […]

Joey’s Restaurant On Broadway Review

There’s a reason chain restaurants are so popular in Vancouver: if they offer consistent food & service, they bring people back time and time again. Joey’s on Broadway & Hemlock, in Fairview is no exception. The restaurant is very large and spacious, with extra high ceilings, lots of patio dining and best of all – […]

Bin 942 Tapas Parlour Review

Chef & owner, Gord Martin, created Bin 942 and its sister restaurant Bin 941 Tapas Parlours to reflect New York-style wine and tapas bars twelve years ago. Fairview’s trendy tapas restaurant has been serving “glorious gastronomique delights” ever since, and their signature contemporary small plates offer something for everyone. A pioneer, Chef Martin was among […]

Pekoe Tea Lounge Review

We had plans to meet friends at Steeps Tea House on Broadway & Laurel, but upon arrival we discovered that it is now called Pekoe Tea Lounge! Pekoe isn’t the kind of place to work on your Macbook. It’s a cosy and comfy tea house to relax over great conversation and flavorful, steeped loose leaf […]
