Hive Tea Time at Heron’s

One of my favourite girlie dates is to go out for high tea. There’s something refined and classic about sitting at a nice restaurant with your girlfriends, sipping tea and eating lovely tid bits. Heron’s has given traditional high tea a new and modern take by creating their own Hive Tea Time. For $26.95, each…

Tera V Burger

The city of Vancouver has become the first city in Canada to embrace “Meatless Monday,” encouraging residents to forego meat for one day a week for the sake of the planet and their health. It’s a good thing that Vancouver has a lot of tempting vegetarian restaurants. I’ve heard this restaurant has the best veggie…

Glenburn Soda Fountain and Confectionery

I’ve heard good things about Glenburn. This family owned and operated soda fountain has taken the food world by a storm with their old-school ice cream recipes and home-made sodas. The decor is retro. Walking thru the door is like stepping back into a simpler time. One of the fixtures of the shop is a…

Playa Tropical Mexican Restaurant

The Parlour Yaletown

Parlour is a great addition to the Yaletown neighbourhood. Affordable and non-pretentious, this eatery has a  laid-back atmosphere, a simple, yet innovative menu and an inspired cocktail list. Most people come in  for quick eats and drinks in the evening, but this restaurant is also open for lunch. ( It gets pretty busy at night,…
