“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.”

Vegetarian / Vegan Restaurant
“One of Vancouver's oldest vegetarian restaurants, The Naam, is located in Kitsilano. Open 24-hours a day, the restaurant’s yam fries with miso gravy have inspired many a late-night stop after a night out on the town. There are also many additional healthy, organic and farm-to-table options. For instance, down by the water, along the foot of Yew Street and Cornwall, you'll find a plethora of laid-back neighbourhood bars and restaurants. They tend to serve delicious seafood, along with wines and cocktails to match. Along West 4th, expect polished dining with a multicultural twist. Meanwhile, West Broadway boasts inspiring Greek and Mediterranean food, as many of Vancouver's Greek immigrants originally settled here.”
