Hosting a supper gathering for 8 can be dicey when you have no oven. This place provided fresh made and baked take-away pizza that filled the bill. Also a good place to buy groceries in the West End.

I was staying at a hotel nearby and wanted to pick up some juice/fruit cup/baked goods for my morning snack before my meetings. This was a great find. The selection was great. I could have easily picked up takeout dinners as well. Excellent grocery/takeout joint!

I loved this place I came twice and ordered the same thing. Roasted potatoes and ribs for $7. I then picked up Hickory stix, poutine and Swiss Chalet gravy. It's two stories and they even have flowers and plants. Awesome shop

Staying in long stay Vancouver accommodation and needing groceries from time to time, we were usually able to meet our needs here. Prices were a bit higher than we are used to back home, but this is likely due to the high rent location. Good...More

This grocery store has everything but the best part is the hot buffet selection where you can find the best roast lamb in Vancouver. Produce is good too, very fresh, they try to source as much local stuff as possible. Bakery items are hit and...More

Nice grocery store (a la Whole Foods) with restaurant. Large selection, though pricey even factoring in the Canadian to US exchange rate. Still, great produce, bakery, meat counter, cheeses, etc. Although, if you take a ferry ride over to Granville, you'll get a way better...More

Bit of a supermarket come takeaway. Just go in and you'll see. Ready to eat hot meals or sushi or maybe you need toilet paper, flowers, chocolates. Good little shop to buy necessities.

Decided to have a typical Canadian breakfast on our last full day. Great selection, staff superb. Served us quickly and with a smile. The corned beef hash and bacon followed by the pancakes were filling and tasty. Good hot chocolate and a double expresso at...More

We stumbled on this place looking for a good quality breakfast. It delivered, then some. This seems to be in the heart of the financial district of Vancouver. The huge deli inside had me browsing for ages. We’d taken our time in the serving area....More

Sadly just experienced the worst breakfast I think I've had anywhere in the world. Laughingly described as corned beef hash it was a few cubes of meat with way too many cubed potatoes and toast! I asked the server for French toast instead of whole...More

Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is
