I'm big on coffee. Vancouver has a brilliant cafe scene emerging, much like Seattle or Victoria. A couple personal faves: Milano's on W8th Ave - What an epic location - the view is incredible. And make sure to try the Butter or Cognac espresso, and take some home with you. Like heaven in your mouth and everyone is singing - Hallaleuia! JJ Bean at Main & 14th - amazing venue, high ceilings Matchsticks - around the corner from our place. Shiek and they have great coffee! Paper Crane coffee - right across the street and over half a block. Quaint little coffee shop with good music and people are typically studying.

This casual Italian dining experience is amazing! Neapolitan-style pizzas are made using its 900-degree oven. It feels just like an old school Italian pizzeria. Chef Jesse knows whats up when it comes to food, they use very high quality ingredients.

Vancouver's version of New York's Central Park. I have tons of memories of Stanley Park as a kid. From the Aquarium, to the water park, to the holiday trains (Christmas, Halloween, Easter, etc.), and even the totem poles. You need to check this place out.

Very close to our place. It is such a neat market for really organic products. Super hippy-esque. I totally recommend! I always walk away with things that I would have never thought, and then I actually use and consume them! Afterwards, go for a walk with the family around the lake to discuss what you saw and found.
