Funky place in downtown Vancouver

We have walked by this place over the years and finally stopped in for coffee and ended up having lunch when we saw the lovingly put together sandwiches. We shared an avocado, cheese, greens, etc. baguette. It was very tasty. Be prepared to take a giant, wide mouth bite. The service is fast... read more

Lots of kitchy eastside pride here in the décor. Not really the best place for a business meeting a la suit and tie. Still...amazing salads with fresh slices of pear, walnuts and blue Bree. Sandwiches are made to order on fresh baguettes. A great place for a tete a tete. For lunch, you can call in your order ahead which... More

The reviews were right about this place, it's wonderful. The service was great and fast. I had a house salad with prosciutto added and it was simply amazing. Seating can be an issue since it's so small, but I found a seat.

If you’re ever wondering around downtown Vancouver streets and in the mood to stay warm this Fall/Winter stop by Finch’s tea and coffee house. It is a unique and cozy little coffee house in the Gastown area. It’s hard to leave the house during the cold winter days but this place makes you feel as if you were still in... More

This little gem was located kitty corner from my hotel so I figured I should try it out. The fresh and lovely (and locally sourced) food was put together in a variety of simple yet ridiculously tasty combinations. The baguettes were by far the best that I have had outside the walls of Paris. The ladies that work there are... More

Always a line during the office lunch breaks, this cute little cafe in an old antique shop has been my go-to since I discovered it in 2006. It never disappoints. My fave is the avocado baguette (I get it without lettuce and with the oil and vinegar option.) It is so good that I never divert. Everyone has their everytime... More

FANTASTIC ! This is what happen when you blend EU and NA together. The European style of a french Bistro an italian Caffetteria with a taste of a British teaHouse, blended with a soft grunge style from the Nw of America. The people here are really polite, gently, smart, perfect, and the place is clean. The food is really beautiful,... More

Great place for a coffee or tea and a pastry. However, it's in Vancouver, not Victoria, as this listing says. The street address is correct, but there's no Pender Street in Victoria. Tripadvisor won't let me change it.

Delish food, my favourite is the procuttio cheese and pear baguette. Most days there's a line out the door.

Staying in Gastown

Neighborhood Profile
Gastown
A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and stepping into a bygone era. With the distinction of being Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, the many plaques that stud the cobbled streets of Gastown tell the story of its colorful past, giving Vancouver's history a more lively presence here than anywhere else. Having been originally founded around a popular worker's saloon, it's no wonder that today some of Vancouver's best micro-breweries, creative cocktail joints, and corner bars can be found in this area. Classical charm suffuses its many vintage boutiques and the brick-built structures that an army of creative professionals call home.
