Cannibal Cafe is one of my favourite local dining spots. It's an unpretentious burger joint on Commercial Drive in east Vancouver. The food is consistently good, the service is friendly, and there's something on the menu for every palate. There's a nice variety of local...More

Came here for some quick food and ended up getting a milkshake on the house while a regular customer was given a burger and told Merry Christmas. Any place that treats their customers like that is a place where I would spend my money. Not...More

The cannibal Cafe has a great Varieté of burger. I decided to eat the Bad bacon, great choice in my opinion. The only thing i didn't like was the Cold bun. Great service, she even got toys for our baby. Would definetly go there again....More

Commercial Drive
Commercial Drive, also called "The Drive," comprises
of twelve sauntering blocks of modest and unfussy
counter-culture. Straddling the line between
sophisticated and unadorned, it is favoured by
students, artists, writers, designers, and start-ups,
and suffused throughout with a healthy off-beat
counter-culture. The kind of neighbourhood which
well-springs thought-revolutions and has the odd bit
