We got off the Hop On Hop Off bus tour at the English Bay stop. We were not really hungry, but needed coffee/tea and a snack. We were all a bit chilled and needed a warm up. It was mid-week and before noon, so this...More

Bright, clean and modern. This restaurant deserves a try. We enjoyed the excellent paella. Food is well prepared and crisp. Service is excellent and attentive. A great alternative to some of the other nearby offerings.

West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines
verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with
Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a
paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and
perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most
languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset
Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to
take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along
