Just by chance I came across this place. This is an authentic hideout with good coffee. A great place to get away for a few hours with a good book from the 2nd hand book store across the street. Enjoy.

A beautiful little cafe, very popular, with a fantastic atmosphere. The brie, pear and walnut baguette was amazing! Followed by a coffee and chocolate cookie. It had a very arty, individual feel to it, with the baguettes served on paper tied with string, very original and rustic! Would highly recommend this place for quality food, making a lunchtime snack that... More

I want to live in Vancouver so I can go to Finch's for their pear, brie and prosciutto baguette. I got it to go for my drive back to Seattle and devoured it somewhere along the road. Maybe it was just hunger, maybe it was just that good. Also, the to-go wrapping was simple but adorable. Coffee was also very... More

Nice spot for a light(ish) lunch, mostly baguettes and soup, but filling and satisfying nonetheless! Rustic decor, kind of canteen-strangers sharing tables atmosphere all adds to it being a good lunchtime experience, getting your sandwich wrapped in brown paper and string just tops it off!

This adorable little tea and coffee shop is a place you'll want to stop and visit. Loads of charm embrace you with it's rustic, antique touches. The menu is more than sufficient and offers the best sandwiches you'll ever have, not to mention great salads. My personal sandwich favourite is baked blue brie, roasted walnuts and prosciutto. Loads of varieties... More

This is a little gem - great decor, really delicious food - the pear, walnut and blue Brie baguette was one of the best sandwiches I've tasted. Sadly the service didn't quite match up - the waitress was indifferent and I had to ask for a knife and fetch my own plate.

Excellent baguettes and salads. Ok coffee. The café is full of hipsters and if you don’t have a sleeve tattoo you don’t fit in. We don’t and felt that the waitress was way too cool to serve us or even be polite and friendly. Apart from the poor service the food here makes it well worth a visit. 4/5

The sandwiches at Finch's are the kind that you wish you could replicate. But it's impossible to do that. I've been to Vancouver twice in the past nine months and I make this a mandatory stop no matter what time of day I'm there. Lots of choice, incredible taste. I'll be back!

Pear, Blue Brie, Walnuts, Balsamic. Get real. Best sandwhich ever. Really cute decor too. I've been to the Homer St. one and the new Strathcona one. Both awesome.
