Eating in Vancouver

Eating in Vancouver

I mentioned my love for Sylvia’s to a local in Vancouver who went on to rattle off a number of modern alternatives. I’ll take Sylvia’s old-fashioned service and old-fashioned view of the sunset; give me the oldest hotel in Vancouver on English Bay any day of the week! We paid pilgrimage twice during this trip. The first, we were too […]

Coffee in Vancouver

Coffee in Vancouver

Interestingly on this Vancouver trip, all the new people I met wanted to meet in Bakeries. A mix of Italian, French or general. I was introduced to Truffles – the bf and went back there for a little lunch, Sciué, Tartine and  Faubourg, all pretty close to where we were staying; I walked everywhere! What’s really […]

Only in Vancouver

Only in Vancouver

We were in Vancouver at the same time as the Marathon three years ago and we find ourselves here again. Last time, it was sheer coincidence that we were stepping aside for runners in Stanley Park. It did explain why the airport was far busier than usual when we landed a couple of days before. This year, […]

Shopping in Vancouver

Shopping in Vancouver

One of the first things I do on reaching Vancouver is buy flowers for the hotel, or in this case, our Airbnb apartment. There wasn’t anything exciting in our local Safeway this time (although being a Brit, going to Safeway is exciting in itself as we don’t have the stores anymore) so we waited until […]

Yes Vancouver, like New York is a going out to eat city. There are so many cheap places to eat sitting alongside the ever-growing ‘fine […]

A Cruising Lunch in Vancouver

After a week of meeting people and generally making friends over a coffee separately, the bf & I were looking at day trips for a our long weekend to end this year’s trip to Vancouver. Everyone we met/knew was suggesting something really tiring; Grouse Mountain (both done it), Whistler (I’ve done it and will introduce it to […]

Vancouver: Where to go for Breakfast

Vancouver: Where to go for Breakfast

Can I ever be bored with breakfast in Vancouver? Even during my annual 10 day trips, I can go to a different place every day and still not fit all my favourites in: Century Plaza – The Benedicts, the French Toast, the perfect 5 star service! I would eat breakfast here more often, if it […]

Vancouver: Where to go for coffee

Vancouver: Where to go for coffee

I change when I get to Vancouver. I’m as happy in the independent coffee shops as I am in the Canadian corporate owned chains. Frankly, Tim Horton’s is an institution and a day in Canada doesn’t feel complete with out a visit. Here I change too; I have French Vanilla occasionally, especially as my late […]
