A sweet little spot

Finch's is an eclectic little spot convenient to both MacLeod's Books and the Victorian Hotel. It's also not far from the steam clock. On this visit, we were warming up and fortifying ourselves before the bookstore. I had a nice cup of black tea; my companion had a double short latte. Although it... read more

As the title says, you can't beat their sandwiches on fresh baguettes. Service is typical hipster-surly for the most part, but it adds to the charm. Try the brief and grape (add walnuts).

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
