Tasty food and friendly service

This restaurant was close to our motel. The burgers are amazing. I had the bacon bigger burger and my gf had the Mac & cheese burger. Good sized portions and service was very quick.

Took a cab down from my hotel when visiting in December, as getting together with family was taking longer than anticipated. Always nice menu choices at White Spot, and pretty consistent food. Beef dip was tasty and not overly fatty like some can be. Server checked in on me several times and was pleasant and friendly.

This review gets an 'excellent' for value seeing as I didn't pay anything for breakfast. There was 1 person working and she was busy with her (approximately) 4 tables so we seated ourselves. Coffee & Tea came relatively quickly. I don't know if the back area echos or if the staff are just loud because at some point another person... More

Whatever you order at White Spot will at least be average. Their burgers are amazing and you HAVE to try blueberry shake!! Pasta is above average and sandwiches are decent too.

We ate 3 meals here on two different days. Everyone in our party (4 adults) were completely satisfied. The food and service was wonderful. For breakfast the waffles and pancakes were great and too much for one person to eat. Bacon and eggs were cooked perfectly. Burgers and soups were wonderful as well. As well as the salad was very...

Went here as staying at Coast Hotel before morning flight and were too tired to explote further afield. It's not just a burger diner, there are plenty more options to choose from, although the burgers are great. Something to suit everyone, limited vegi options though. Good is good quality and good portion sizes, prices maybe a little on the high... More

The first "White Spot" opened in 1928,87 years ago.Now there are 59 locations in British Columbia and Alberta.To survive this long in an industry,that sees so many failures,they must be doing something right.The "White Spot" is the best example,why consistent quality always sells.No need to re-invent yourself,no need to re-brand yourself as a "Bistro".Just keep the customers happy with tasty...

Nice diverse menu. Our party of 5 were able to find something that they liked. Milk Shakes were very good. My husband loved his burger. I had a curry quinoa dish that was very tasty. We were there on pirates day so not only was my husband's burger served in a pirates boat but a percentage of our check went... More

As we were taking the shuttle from the airport to the Coast Vancouver Airport Hotel, we were wondering where we could get a good meal. The shuttle dropped us off at the front door to the hotel and three steps away (literally) was the entrance to the White Spot. We decided to take a look at it after we checked... More

Staying in Little India / Punjabi Market

Neighborhood Profile
Little India / Punjabi Market
Little India has changed in recent years. While some view it as a declining neighbourhood due to emigration and competition, it is still the original site of the Punjabi Market, and an epicentre for Indo-Canadian culture. The many textile outlets along these blocks boast endless swaths of colourful sari fabric, while the local markets and food stalls waft the savory scent of sugar and spice. Indian fast-pop breaks the quiet of the neighbourhood, as it drifts out from the windows of shops and homes, and glitzy storefronts offer bangles, jewels, and silk at reasonable prices. Join the bargain hunt and step into a world apart in Little India, which becomes especially upbeat during the summer, when celebrations and festivities take hold of its streets.
