There’s nothing better than starting out a morning with a good breakfast. And when that breakfast just happens to be served in Hawaii… it’s just all that much better. Eggs ‘n Things has been around Waikiki since 1974 and they have a few locations right now (their flagship store is located near the Ala Moana Center) but the one that we visited was their busy “eggspress” location right across from the beach with a great view of the ocean.

I know that there are a lot of places to eat at Granville Island but one of our default go-to places is the Sandbar. Run under the same banner that manages The Teahouse, Cardero’s, and Seasons in the Park, they know how to put together a good plate of food and all have beautiful locations… perfect for a date.
February was Food Truck Fest at Vancouver Farmers Market and I dropped by on the last Saturday. As it turned out, the day was pleasantly sunny (but still bitterly cold). My sights today was to visit Yolk’s and try out some of their wares.
Are you looking for someplace to have breakfast? How about a busy little spot that’s got a flair for interesting names?
Are you looking for a good old-fashioned greasy spoon diner? You don’t have to go very far because tucked into a little nook on Main Street is Lucy’s Eastside Diner.

On a Sunday morning Costco outing in early January, we decided to grab some dim sum beforehand. The main problem being that Burnaby has a definite lack of choices when it comes to dim sum. Read the rest of this entry
Back in December, we were really trying to avoid the local malls because we knew they would be packed full of shoppers. Fortunately, Vancouver has lots of shopping areas besides germ-riddled malls… such as Granville Street. I’ve never really noticed West Restaurant nestled amongst the other stores before as the exterior is a bit understated.
Breakfast at Fraser Park Restaurant is still quite popular with the place packed during the peak morning hours. We had a hankering for some potato pancakes in late November and were lucky enough to arrive before a large group of other diners. Read the rest of this entry
We’ve been to La Régalade before and enjoyed our visit (see our previous post) but we don’t always find ourselves out in West Van too often. Fortunately, they open for brunch (Fri, Sat, Sun @ 11:30am) so we dropped by on the weekend last November. It was empty when we first arrived but got busier as noon approached.

I was searching high and low for the proper way to describe this little restaurant on East 8th (just off Main Street) and the thing that kept coming into my mind was that it was a “nice cafe”. I suppose they chose the right name. It’s not exactly the “Super Terrific Happy Cafe” but it’s also not the “Dreary Cafe from h-e-double-hockey-sticks”.
