Clough Club

When it comes to brunch, Gastown is lousy with choices, most of which I’m pretty familiar with. Which is why I was surprised that I’d never been to Clough Club before. It’s one of Gastown’s smaller, and more hidden restaurants, perhaps a bit overshadowed by its next-door neighbor, the much larger Lamplighter. This gal loves […]

La Brasserie

La Brasserie is one of those places you walk past on Davie St and always see a crowd inside. There’s a reason for that, and it starts with the food. The menu is Franco-German inspired, with an emphasis on the Franco. The ingredients are locally sourced with a focus on organic and quality.  This is […]

Tableau Bar Bistro

I count myself incredibly lucky to live right in Downtown Vancouver. I love being in the middle of the action. Here, there are a plethora of dining choices just steps from my front door. Despite it being steps from my front door, until recently, I’d never brunched at Tableau Bar Bistro. I’d stayed at the […]

The Twisted Fork Bistro

The Twisted Fork is Vancouver’s version of a less-fussy, French-inspired bistro, firmly established on the Granville Street strip.  This is one of those brunch locations that has a solid following in the city and for good reason; the food is clearly crafted with great care for the ingredients and the flavours.  When you make the […]

Young families are out, older couples stroll along the Seawall, and friends gather to share stories […]

Temper Pastry

Temper-atures Are Rising With temperatures nearing the bazillions and no rain in sight, over-heated Vancouverites can temper their internal and external temperatures with a cool treat from Temper Pastry’s new Summer Menu. Temper Pastry has been a favourite among West Vancouverites since opening in Dundarave in 2013. The traditional patissierie-meets cool West Coast space is […]

Rustique Bistro–Bowen Island

Rustic is Refreshing on Bowen Island Bowen Island is not the place I expected to find a French Bistro serving a classic French breakfast staple and a killer mango mimosa, but that’s exactly what happened when I took a Saturday morning ferry to celebrate a friend’s birthday with a gal-pal hang-out away from the rat […]

Catch 122

Catch 122 Is a Delicious Conundrum One of the challenges of being a food blogger is that you only have but the one stomach. Whenever I go to check out a new place, I like to take at least one other person with me, and we usually divide and conquer. We’ll each order something different, […]

Bistro Pastis is a long-standing stand-out classic French restaurant in Kitsilano. For fifteen years restauranteur John Blakely has been serving classic, elegant French food in a room that […]
