I went to Vancouver last weekend for a few days. I did not expect to fall in love with the place like I did! It was an amazing city. The views, parks and food was to die for. I will be back again soon for more Vancouver.

My weekend consisted of visiting loads of restaurants, coffee shops, cycling and visiting Lynn Canyon. I stayed with friends so I was lucky that I didn’t need to book accommodation.

I flew from San Francisco to Vancouver and the flight was around $300 return which was slightly above average as it was a national holiday in Vancouver.

Here are all the amazing places we went to eat/drink etc.

 

Coffee:

I had JJBean and 49th Parallel. These coffee roasters brew all over the city and are so good. If you’re looking for a good cup of joe these are your go to. Also all the cafes I went to were aesthetically amazing. The design inside each place was blogger heaven.

 

 

 

 

Granville Island:

We went to the Granville Island Public Market. It was really cool and full of delicious artisan foods, fresh produce and hand made crafts.

 

 

Meat and Bread:

This place is exactly what it says on the tin. The have fresh roast meat sandwiches that are to die. The perfect soakage after or before a long night of cocktails.

 

CafΓ© Medina:

We had brunch here on Sunday. Be prepared to que… for a long time. It is so worth it though. Brunch was so good. They have a huge menu that is mediterranean inspired so it’s not your usual eggs Benedict. And then there was the waffles …. they were possibly the best waffles I have had. You can pick from a million dips to go with them so save room with your breakfast to feast on these. Must have!

 

Pure Bread:

 

If you like baked goods then you have found your Mecca. They have everything …like absolutely everything that could possibly be baked!

 

 

Revel Room:

We went for dinner in the Revel Room. I loved it. The menu is primarily southern inspired dishes and there is such a great vibe. Its more of a casual setting so theres a large drinks menu and live music to set the perfect vibe. The music a southern and blue grass vibe paired with the amazing food and free flowing cocktails made for a great atmosphere!

I actually forgot to take any pictures of my food because I was having too much fun but I did remember to take a snap of the heroes of the night … The Beignets. They were ridiculously good.

 

 

 

Stanley Park:

After all that eating we cycled around Stanley Park which was such a good way to see the city and its amazing views. The cycle takes approx 2 hours if you don’t stop… a bit longer when you stop for cocktails on the way home. πŸ™‚ Β Bike rental was 35 Canadian dollars for the day.

 

Lynn Canyon:

This is a really gorgeous park that has loads of trails and a suspension bridge. We just went for a short walk around and checked out the suspension bridge. I didn’t actually walk across it as I am petrified of shaky bridges that hang 50 metres above waterfalls but the rest of the group went across and loved it!

 

 

The Verdict: Β VISIT VANCOUVER !!! πŸ™‚
